Oregon's Cover Oregon has been a national example of how NOT to establish a web based health plan. It was apparent early on that there was nothing but breaded air attached to the cartoonish ads and commercials. Millions that could have been spent on healthcare instead went to bureaucrats and incompetent web designers.

But just like magic, it's no one's fault! No one has been fired, no one called to account for the millions spent.

Governor Kitz who is a doctor and an expert in healthcare issues is MIA.

Oregonians, if you re-elect this group of incompetent and corrupt pols, expect more of the same.
