The Federal government didn't move the idea, but a single payer healthcare program isn't out of the question in Oregon. Portland Representative Michael Dembrow says the Obama Admistration is allowing states to be the labs for innovation. A bill in the State House Healthcare Committee Friday would create a plan that opens up Medicare to all Oregonians. The co-pays included in taxes on a sliding scale based on income. A rally in support begins at noon Friday.
