Oregon Experience

The immense power of the health insurance companies is demonstrated by their ability to conduct very expensive media campaigns which result in opposition to single-payer, Medicare for All: as high as 70 to 80% against.

Year 2002 example in Oregon:
79% against
(969,537 votes against) in Oregon single-payer health care ballot proposal
the citizen proponents of this proposal were outspent 10 (or more) to 1 with over a million dollars spent by opponents

2002 Oregon Ballot Proposal Initiated by Citizens

Measure 23: finances a state health care program that would be administered by a new public non-profit corporation called the Oregon Health Care Finance Board.

Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of activists got petitions signed in order to get the question on the ballot. Citizens worked hard to get 98,000 signatures.

Health insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies (and friends) poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into media efforts to defeat the proposals. The opponents included Kaiser Permanente, Regence BlueCross Blue Shield of Oregon, Pacific Source, ODS Health Plans.
