Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on repealing the Affordable Care Act.  Oregon Congressman Greg Walden has said he supports the move.  “This needs to be replaced. It needs to be repealed.  I've opposed this law from the beginning.  I don't believe it’s going to do what it's supposed to do.  It empowers bureaucrats to make the decision for us.”  But, Dave Stranahan with Central Oregon Jobs with Justice is holding a forum in downtown Bend, asking for opponents to give the act a chance to work.  “essentially we hope to say to Representative Walden, hold off on repealing the Affordable Care Act.  Let's see what we can do to make it better.  And the last word is we have the opportunity and the mechanism for healthcare for all Oregonians, and we want people to know that.”  Stranahan says the Affordable Care Act is not perfect, but allows more people to be covered.   He wants to see states to be able to come up with their own individual’s plans to reform healthcare.
