“I think that Oregon does a better job than most states with health care, but it’s still not perfect. There are pieces I may not agree with, but it’s great that we are trying to cover more people. So overall, health care in Oregon is good.”
What do you think about healthcare?
“Healthcare is necessary and needed…maybe we should copy France.”
What has your experience been?
“My experience is if I treat people nice, nice things happen. If I’m bad to people, bad things happen. Oregon is awesome! I’m homeless, but people will help you. I used to do drugs and sell drugs. The head of the Mentor program saved my life. The problem was with me. Once I addressed my problems, things got better. I got tired of fighting the system. OHSU helped a lot.”
