    Occupy Portland teams up with health care reform groups for rally, march for universal health care | OregonLive.com

    At Pioneer Square, organizer Dr. Paul Gorman, part of Mad As Hell Doctors, asked the marchers to talk about why they were mad as hell. A father lamented that he chooses between $400 monthly multiple sclerosis medication for himself or food for his four children. A 4-year temporary worker at the Oregon Zoo still doesn't have benefits. A former medical transcriptionist never had health care through years of working in the health care industry.

    "It's outrageous that while the 1 percent make record profits, the 99 percent are an illness away from bankruptcy," Gorman, an OHSU doctor, said.


    "It's time to get the 1 percent out of the way so we can get the health care every Oregonian deserves."

    OWS, like the Democrat Party they represent, really are Marxists

    Said it before and I'm not kidding, the OWS crowd makes me feel like a Soviet soldier on the German border in June 1941. There's a lot of commotion on the other side and we better start paying close attention and not assuming they have our best interest at heart

    Crusader Frank, would you mind to explain how the OWs represent Marxists?

    Because they openly embrace government sponsored control and redistribution and they call each other "Komrade"?

    That help any?
