The contradiction between Republican Knute Buehler’s campaign rhetoric and his healthcare agenda are highlighted in a new television ad.

“Knute Buehler will say just about anything about healthcare in his bid to get elected,” said Christian Gaston, spokesman for Governor Brown’s campaign. “But Oregonians don’t want Buehler’s healthcare agenda. He voted to cut Medicaid and gut healthcare for seniors, vulnerable families and children.”


Citing data from the Oregon Health Authority and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, the ad asserts, “Candidate Knute Buehler says all Oregonians deserve affordable healthcare, but doctor Knute Buehler made millions by charging the elderly and Medicare patients some of the highest rates in the state.” [Oregon Health Authority 2015 Hospital Payment Report; Medicare Provider Payment Data]. 

“There are two Knute Buehlers. One is on television trying to cover up the tracks of the other one,” said Gaston. “But Oregonians see through his rhetoric and know that he’s not on their side.”
