Measure 101 guarantees healthcare for Oregon’s most vulnerable – children, seniors and people with disabilities – who otherwise wouldn’t be able to see a nurse or doctor when they get sick.
VOTING YES ON MEASURE 101 MEANS:
- Healthcare for more Oregonians — especially kids, seniors, and people with disabilities — who otherwise couldn’t afford a doctor’s visit.
- All children in Oregon will be able to access healthcare. No child should get sick and fall behind in school because their family cannot afford a doctor’s visit.
- Protecting healthcare for 350,000 Oregonians. Today, 95 percent of Oregonians have healthcare. We can’t afford to slide backward to a time when only the wealthy could afford healthcare.
VOTING NO ON MEASURE 101 MEANS:
- 350,000 Oregonians, including many SEIU care providers on the Oregon Health Plan, could lose their healthcare.
- Premiums could go up for 210,000 Oregonians.
- State funding for healthcare will be cut by between $210 and $320 million, resulting in the loss of potentially $5 billion in federal funding, which will throw the state budget into crisis.
