A Local Vote On Universal Health Care

"You should see a doctor," people say when you're having health issues. 

That phrase has taken on new dimensions in the age of almost-universal health insurance.  It's the "almost" part that troubles some people; they want to see health care coverage for all. 

Count Health Care For All Oregon in that group.  HCAO endorses a local measure on the ballot in Ashland (Measure 15-154) which calls on voters to pressure the legislature for an improved health care system.  Our guests are Joe Graf, Sandra Coyner, and Lauri Hoagland, a nurse practitioner.
