Oregon ranks among the top 10 states for a drop in the number of uninsured, according to a new Gallup poll.

A telephone survey showed 14 percent of Oregonians were uninsured through midyear 2014, compared to 19.7 percent uninsured last year.

Read the article and it's all about MEDICAID. OK so we open the door for easier access to Medicaid which is "free" (except most doctors won't take it) and we're supposed to be surprised that people take advantage of the opportunity. I bet you could increase the servings of vegetables eaten by offering them for nothing. That more people have Medicaid cards doesn't mean better care. There was a large study here in Oregon that demonstrated this clearly. As usual though the Oregonian loves to trumpet when some government backed goody sounds successful. Wait until these folks actually need care and see how well it works.
