The Oregonian’s editorial perspective on Measure 101 is highly debatable. I am a senior at Oregon State University. Not all students have coverage through parents. Ensuring all have accessible health care makes higher education more accessible.
Like many of my peers, I am a student who has health care through Oregon Health Plan. The ability to reach proper health care when I need it most allows me to focus on my schoolwork rather than worry if I have the means to get urgent care, medication, or primary health care.
I’m so thankful for the Oregon Health Plan and I implore my fellow Oregonians to vote "yes" with me on Measure 101.
