(SALEM, Ore.) - Former Oregon Secretary of State Bill Bradbury who is currently vying for the state's governor's seat, talked to Sunday, about the nation's healthcare reform legislation that is currently pending in the Senate.

Needless to say, the idea of publicly funded healthcare for Americans is heavily opposed by Republicans, insurance companies and others who benefit from the current arrangement; one that leaves millions of people without any type of coverage and lack of access to healthcare.

Bradbury visited the Salem home of Arnold and Margaret Strong to speak to a gathering of supporters and other Oregonians interested in hearing what Bradbury has to say about the state's future. Arnold Strong is a longtime resident and a Lt. Col. in the U.S. Army Reserve, Margaret has worked in a number of areas as a political activist.

In this video Bradbury discusses political opposition to the proposed healthcare bill, he also addresses the fact that Medicare was strongly opposed by Republicans in the beginning, while today strongly backing this program.

Bradbury the only difference with the current legislation, is that public healthcare would cover people under 65.

Stephen, I Support you. Obama against the elite ?!

Henry: I have credible evidence that the elite are not happy with Obama. Not sure why yet, seems he has been following their agenda to a "T". Lets just enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday, but I will write you next week. I may need your insight on this. I know the agenda of the elite, and its not pretty. If they are not happy with Obama, then you and I may have a common ground. We may need to talk sir. Thanks... p.s. politics make strange bedfellows. :-)

Lyle: Yours implies opposition to Gore and what he stands far...thus inevitable also is open support for Gore's opponent in key election. That should destroy any real impact of YOUR judgment,sir !!

Lyle November 24, 2009 6:10 pm (Pacific time)

Bradbury is a big supporter of Al Gore's global warming thesis. That pretty well says a lot about his judgement.

I have learned to not debate those who attack me personally. You have a computer, type in your search engine "marines guarding opium fields" or type in, "heroin flooding into the U.S. 40 fold", or type in, "Russia concerned about heroin".. I have learned, thru my "12 years of experience" that CSPAN is a joke. Ron Paul spoke of the federal reserve bank decades ago, and had congress critters, and senate critters going to him asking him what the federal reserve bank is. Thats crazy in itself. They IGNORED him all this time, but now they are NOT. They are too late now. Altho, 309 bi-partisan co-sponsers for audit the fed, really hurts obama, who wanted to give them MORE power and secrecy. And because of "climategate", shows the nobel peace prize, and his support for global warming is a hoax. Please do not put me down personally in the future, or I wont respond.

Good information here! Something else to consider with the Tamaflu that is getting over perscribed, is that it is making it through our bodies, down the drain, into the wastewater treatment plants where is IS NOT BROKEN DOWN. And then released into the environment where it provides a nice mechanism for creating Tamaflu resistant strains of diseases, something I'm sure Gilead really does not want you to hear.

Stephen: Have you tried heat treatment ? Easy-- Just turn on that TV you turned OFF, tune to any ongoing public service program such as CSpan or OPB coverage of representative governance such as Congress or Oregon Legislature, and focus the heat you find on that icecold blockage between your ears. Be prepared for the melting process, which may be somewhat painful since yours is such a longtime denigration. Meantime,why not concentrate on publication of those 12 years of "researcH' you keep reminding us about ? What form is all that work in now, and where will it be published for review and comment ?? You can always turn to Op Ed format here --only 1000-wds., so easy for you to tear off while seated youknowwhere... Still awaiting your note of source for claim re Marines guarding drug-fields...

None of this matters. The U.S. is bankrupt, and any legislation, whether it be health care, global warming, etc. is nothing but getting money to continue the western worlds empire building, and total global control. It is not about climate change, or health care, or about caring about U.S. citizens, its about getting every last dime out of us to continue their agenda. PERIOD
