OHF: Will Oregonians Accept Tax-Funded Universal Healthcare? | Multnomah Athletic Club | Tuesday, 19. November 2019

A July poll of 402 Oregon voters, conducted by Elway Research of Seattle, revealed that 62% of those polled would consider a statewide universal healthcare plan that converts premiums and out-of-pocket payments into taxes, even if that plan doubled their income taxes. Join us as we explore the costs of universal healthcare as they relate to the taxpayer and the future of Oregon’s healthcare system.
