Multnomah County Democrats: UNTIL the world is won

We must persist pressuring our electeds day in and day out UNTIL every vote is protected, UNTIL every person is respected, UNTIL every person has health care, UNTIL every child is lifted up in love, UNTIL every job provides a living wage, UNTIL every person in poverty has basic subsistence, UNTIL we lift up our Native people, UNTIL every black man and woman can live in safety, UNTIL every war has ceased, UNTIL every wall is torn down, EVEN if we have a narcissistic egomaniac in the white house, we have to persist, there is power when we stand together.

Health Care is a Human Right Lobby Day Wednesday Feb 7th

Health Care is a Human Right, change the wording of Oregon Constitution.
Important: Do not talk about single payer healthcare. Senator Greenlick and HCAO have come up with a well thought out plan.

Phase One 2018- We establish that healthcare is a human right in our state constitution. Once that is accomplished, we will have to figure out a mechanism to deliver healthcare to all Oregonians.

Again, do not talk about the method of delivery, just that healthcare is a fundamental, human right.
Please call your electeds: or consider going to salem for lobby days.

National Popular Vote Short Session Lobby Day Tuesday Feb 6th

The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The Oregon Senate Rules Committee is holding a hearing on Tuesday February 6, so please email your Oregon legislators asking them to support the version of the National Popular Vote bill (HB 2927) that has passed the Oregon House of Representatives four times — and to oppose the referral version of the bill (SB 1512).

Dr. Martin Luther King and Measure 101

 

“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Chicago, March 25, 1966

Measure 101 addresses health care funding through authorizing “provider fees”. It is a system that is effective in 49 other states, and a system which providers themselves support. The passage of Measure 101 will ensure 400,000 Oregon kids can still see a doctor, will maintain services for seniors, and will help stabilize premiums for all Oregonians.

But it won’t pass without your help as an active Multnomah County Democrat.
