Divided We Fail—Oregonians Call for Reform in D.C.

October 8, 2007

Portland, OR - AARP CEO Bill Novelli is in Oregon to help kick off the "Divided We Fail" campaign. It's an effort to join businesses, labor groups and consumers to fight for healthcare and economic security reforms. Novelli says the American public is very worried about what it sees as a broken healthcare system. He says it's time for Oregonians to take action.

"We have to demand change, demand that our political leaders fix these problems. We can't have 47 million people who are uninsured. We can't have people depending on Social Security for their entire income."

Oregon's senior population is exploding as Baby Boomers head into retirement, but Novelli says this isn't just an issue for seniors but affects the entire population. In his view, it's time to start putting pressure on politicians.

"We need to break the gridlock. What Washington, D.C. represents today is political stalemate, and that's not going to get us where we have to go."
