Lots of Interest in Healthcare For All!

It’s no surprise. There’s great interest in Health Care For All in Douglas County. The local League of Women Voters meeting held on March 19th in Roseburg attracted lots of attention. Joe Yetter presented “The Healthcare Movie” and the group of about 50 discussed medical insurance coverage in the United States as compared to healthcare coverage in Canada. In Canada everyone is covered for all medical treatment.

And there’s lots going on regarding healthcare legislation right now at our state Capitol. Check those bills out here.

And check out these photos from the meeting. Maybe you’re in one!
