Single payer would be ideal. Some people call it socialized medicine but that would seem to be common sense since we are a society. I'm a Veteran and have healthcare in the only true socialized medicine in America with the VA. The VA does a great job in controlling chronic conditions such as hypertenstion and diabetes. They are very transparent with their successes and failures (2010 VHA Facility Quality and Safety Report). I know what to expect with them and don't have to wait in huge lines for care. I think that the VA could be used as a model for Oregon. If the VA is good enough for the Veterans then it should be good enough for Oregonians.
