Bill Whitaker, executive director of Oregon Rural Action, stands at the far right. The Oregon Rural Action-sponsored event drew about 50 people, most of them supportive of a single-payer health care system.

Bill Whitaker, executive director of the Blue Mountain Chapter, offered one answer to the question about negative outcomes in a single-payer system.
He said many thousands of people working in health care administration likely would have to change jobs if the state or country switched to single-payer.
But that, he said, could be mitigated with employment retraining.
"It's a significant challenge we can overcome," he said.
Whitaker said in closing remarks that he feels encouraged that two single-payer health care bills, House Bill 3510 and Senate Bill 972, were introduced in the state Legislature this year.
Neither will become law, but Whitaker said people should contact their elected representatives and urge future passage.
"The bills will be re-introduced until they pass. Send postcards to your legislators," Whitaker said.

William (Bill) Whitaker, Treasurer (LaGrande, Oregon Rural Action, Education, Cascades-East) Bill currently serves as treasurer of both HCAO and the HCAO-Education Fund. Professor emeritus of social work at Boise State University, Bill taught community organizing and social policy for 35 years. He is currently co-chair of the Oregon Rural Action Health Care Reform Action Team, organizing in five counties in eastern Oregon, and board member of the Rural Organizing Project. Bill's strong motivations are rooted partly in a background in the Civil Rights movement. He brings understanding of the crises in rural health care, how a single payer system can help address these crises, and a commitment to ensuring those concerns are reflected in the Coalition's work, as true statewide organizing requires. Bill is committed to leaving a livable and just world to grandchildren everywhere.
