Doctor Taking Notes

TAMMY CARPENTER

Running to Represent House District 27

DOCTOR. MOM. PROGRESSIVE.

In running to represent Oregon House District 27, I have three main goals:

 

 

To implement single-payer healthcare in Oregon. 

As a doctor, I have seen the effect of our broken health care system on my patients. It didn't provide wellness to everyone before the pandemic and now this market-based system is still failing to meet the challenges of the Covid public health crisis.

  • We must create a single-payer, state health insurance program to provide every Oregonian with comprehensive health care coverage, free at the point of service.

  • No networks, no premiums, no deductibles, no copays, no surprise bills.

  • Health coverage will be expanded and improved to include dental, hearing, vision, and home- and community-based long-term care, in-patient and out-patient services, mental health and substance abuse treatment, reproductive and maternity care, gender-affirming care, prescription drugs, and more.

  • Stop the pharmaceutical industry from ripping off the Oregonians by negotiating drug prices.

To ensure housing is affordable for everyone.

Oregon must give local communities the resources they need to address housing shortages and remove barriers that keep development from occurring efficiently.

  • We should explore making more Oregon Department of Transportation land available.

  • We can increase involvement of the state in public works infrastructure like sewer lines in less developed parts of the state.

  • We must work to reduce the upfront cost of building affordable housing.

 

To bring about a Just Transition to a green economy in response to the climate crisis.

A Just Transition is one that:

  • Is led by Frontline Communities

  • Creates Buen Vivir/Living Well

  • Shifts Power and Resources

  • Incorporates Regenerative Ecological Effects

  • Embodies Solidarity locally and across the world

  • Centers Community Resilience and Collaboration

  • Incorporates Self-Determination

  • Preserves Ancestral Wisdom and Culture
