Why you should support this campaign

Oregonians for a Better Government are citizens who live in Greg Walden's district who want to place radio ads exposing Greg Walden's lies about his disastrous health care bill, The American Health Care Act. 

Greg Walden was the co-sponsor and author of The American Health Care Act legislation that would cause 23 million Americans to lose their healthcare insurance (per the CBO), including 64,300 Oregonians in our district by 2026. He repeatedly lies about the devastating effects of this bill, especially on older Americans, families and veterans, and those of us with pre-existing conditions.

We want to run radio ads in all parts of Walden’s district, particularly Jackson, Josephine, Deschutes, Umatilla, Hood River and Klamath counties. The 60 second radio ads will expose the lies Walden tells about the devastation his healthcare bill will cause, including the transfer of wealth from the middle class to the 1%.

For a $10,000 budget, we can reach 27,000 listeners with an estimate of being heard by each listener 22 times each. The spot will be aired 1 time each hour for 4 weeks, with the station throwing in the hours of midnight to 6am for free. The average cost per spot is $14.88.

From this initial deployment, we’ll learn from placing advertisements with the radio stations. We hope to expand this effort after this initial campaign to TV advertisements and are using this first deployment to test messaging. 

The math is simple. By donating $20 or whatever you can, you can help us spread the truth about the effects of Walden's legislation. 

Our goal is $10,000 to fund radio ads for 4 weeks. Can we count on you for your support?

    “Greg Walden does not represent his district. He only listens to the out of state fat cats that bribe him with money. It is past time to repeal and replace him.”

    “He has not worked for the majority of Oregonians. He is working for his fat cat lobbyists. He refuses to listen to the people he represents. We need him out.”

ONE-THIRD OF THE WAY THERE!

THANK YOU!! What a terrific response from those who want to hold Greg Walden accountable.  In  less than 3  weeks,  we raised more than $4,000.  This means we are more than one-third of the way to our target of raising $10,000!

We caught a break in Senate last night with the rejection of #trumpcare.  This will not be the end of the GOP attempts to deprive health care to millions of Americans, but we feel a little relief today.

When the Senate passes the ball back to the House, Walden will be part of the process that will reconcile the Senate and House versions.  He has already demonstrated his willingness to cause 23 million Americans to lose their health care, with his first draft of the American Health Care Act.

Please help us hold Walden accountable and tie his own bill to our district, and the devastation this will cause (both in terms of reduction of services AND jobs).  All voters in our Second Congressional District need to be aware of what’s in these bills and they aren’t currently getting that truth through their media sources.  

If you can donate again, please do so. We’re hoping to be able to place these ads in August, and need to have the funds ready to place our advertising reservation.

Thank you for joining us on this journey. We live to fight another day.

In solidarity, 

Oregonians for Better Government
