2016 Party Platforms On Health Care

Curious as to where the parties stand on health care reform?
Here are excerpts from the 2016 platforms of the major political parties in Oregon.




"Democrats believe that health care is a right, not a privilege, and our health care system should put people before profits. "



Green Party

"The Green Party supports single-payer universal health care and preventive care for all. We believe that health care is a right, not a privilege." 



"We favor a free-market health care system. We recognize the freedom of individuals to determine, the level of health care they want."


"The Oregon Progressive Party supports local and federal efforts to create universal access to health care. We need health care, not health insurance."



"Any honest agenda for improving healthcare must start with repeal of the dishonestly named Affordable Care Act of 2010: Obamacare."

Working Families

"Working Families is advocating a new public healthcare option to expand healthcare access and drive down costs."
