The idiotic healthcare bill was so obviously an ideologically based power grab that it astonished me how Pelosi and Reid could continue talking about how this would "improve" healthcare with a straight face. Their noses must have grown ten inches from all the lies.

Whenever this form of healthcare financing (and make no mistake this is about MONEY not care) it has been a disaster. Costs rise, emergency rooms are MORE crowded, providers retire, move or quit taking new patients.

If the gulf spill had to happen, too bad it didn't occure BEFORE this debacle. We could see just how well the government coordinates, responds and solves problems.

My only hope is repeal and remove the idiots in Congress who shoved this down our unwilling throats.

Many “experts” don’t have a full grasp of the 1000 page bill, so I doubt the responses to this poll were based on much more than fear and bias rather than complete information.

Market of Choice is on a tear. In 2012 the 35-year-old Eugene-based grocery chain opened a central kitchen/distribution center in its hometown. The market opened its third Portland store in the Cedar Mill neighborhood this year; another outpost in Bend broke ground in March. A fourth Portland location is slated for the inner southeast “LOCA” development, a mixed-use project featuring condos and retail. Revenues in 2014 were $175 million, a double-digit increase over 2013. CEO Rick Wright discusses growth, market trends and how he keeps new “foodie” grocery clerks happy.
