Attention Oregonians! Make a single-payer push!

David Delk, of the Alliance for Democracy's Portland chapter, reminds Oregonians:

...remember that Rep Earl Blumenauer stated in a public forum that he would not lead on this issue [single payer]; that single payer had no legs to walk on and that he does not, therefore, support it. Call him at 503-231-2300 to suggest that he change his mind.

And our newly elected US senator, Jeff Merkley, has on several occasions said that he will vote for single payer if it comes to a vote in the senate. We need some leadership by elected officials. Call Jeff and tell him you support single payer and you want him to lead on the healthcare issue by sponsoring single payer legislation. His phone number in Portland is (503) 326-3386: Fax: (503) 326-2900.
