More than 300 people gathered in the courtyard beneath Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oregon headquarters in downtown Portland today in support of comprehensive healthcare reform.
Regence employees could be seen looking down on the demonstrators as the speakers shouted through a megaphone.  Organized by MoveOn.org, the rally brought together both single payer and public option advocates.
It ended with a march around the building. 
We're going to hear first from OHSU physician Kyle Gorman and then Tom Leedham with the Teamsters Union and Jobs with Justice.  Both men spoke at the rally.
