Sometimes a problem can seem greater than what we have to give it. The lack of health care for so many of Oregon’s children is that way for me. After the defeat of Measure 50 this past fall and last week's failure to override Bush's S-CHIP veto (by 15 votes!!), I wasn’t sure we had what it would take to find the needed resources and political will. But Children First for Oregon’s Keep It Simple strategy gives me hope that – even if we can’t find new resources in an overlooked spot or redesign the programs to squeeze in 116,000 more kids – there’s something we can do – and we can do it NOW. Of course, all this in the context of continued work to 'solve' the greater problem.
