Common Dreams reports that on August 16 at another town hall, this time in Colorado, cheers for Single Payer drowned out another politician. That same article reports that 62% of Americans now favor Single Payer. Warren Buffet is speaking in favor of Single Payer. You may or may not be on Twitter, but in May alone there were about 400,000 #singlepayer tweets.

My spouse brings "Single Payer" up with almost every conversation and asks people to complete the Statement of Support at hcao.org. I am finally catching onto that. I am asking you to do the same. This type of conversation will allow us to communicate our message to every corner of the state and get to that 80,000 number in our database that we are striving for.

In addition, I will continue to ask that we do the necessary work of building our membership so Become a Member and get others to Become a Member.

Thanks so much for being a part of the effort to bring "an equitable, affordable, comprehensive, high quality, publicly funded universal health care system serving everyone in Oregon and the United States."
