Obamacare is actually going to work in Oregon.  Our governor (Kitzhaber) is himself an M.D. and he's been working on these issues for years.  Republicans are plentiful, but few are of the wingnutius noxious sub-variety.  They have a wonderful ad for the exchange:

Okay, that's reason number one.  Reason number two below the fold:

Reason number two is Oregon's contribution to the athletic world, the official state sport of Dynamiting Whales:

Three points for every car crushed with blubber fragments.  This should be an Olympic event.  Anyway, that's reason number two.  But you'll need the code word -- this is an important safety precaution.  Fortunately it's easy to remember -- just say Oregon.  But you've got to do it right, otherwise, as Uncyclopedia warns:

Orygun. As with Willamette, if you pronounce it wrong, cheese graters will soon meet your ass.
Remember the stellar sequence "Oh Be A Fine Girl Kiss Me" (O B A F G K M)?  Oregon has the same thing:  "If I'm ever in an bar fight, I'll need a knife or a gun.  Laura Gibson, the signer in the Oregon video above gets the name right.

So pack up the spouse, offspring, and Golden Retriever and hie thee out to the Beaver State.

Thank you

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
