Wyden Pushing For Oregon Waiver From Health Care Law, Individual Mandate

One of the most innovative voices in the health care debate, Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), is accelerating the process of exempting his state from some of the national reforms passed under President Barack Obama.

The Oregon Democrat is seeking to take advantage of a provision he helped write into the legislation that allows states to set up their own health care systems as long as they meet minimal requirements established by the Department of Health and Human Services. In a letter to the state’s Health Authority office, Wyden announced that he will introduce legislation to accelerate the start date for state waivers from 2017 to 2014, if not earlier for Oregon specifically.

Pretty dirty pool, wouldn’t you say? You know what I say?

The Democrats shoved it down ALL our throats?

Then they should ALL have to SWALLOW ~ even Wydens Weasels who wrote themselves an Emergency Election Escape clause.

UPDATE: This is all part and parcel of Pelosi’s, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it…”

“I said you had to READ it, little people…”

A part Allah and Ed found out EVERYONE missed (per the plan) way back in MARCH, that has suddenly become a Democratic Election Emergency Chute Deployment for Oregon.

It’s a crying shame about the rest of us back here in the undrained swamp in states that either had Republicans for Senators, or Senators who tried to work their “get out of jail free” card deals out in the open (“transparently”, à la both Nelsons, for example), and who rightfully got pilloried by the rest of a really pissed-off country.

Wyden’s D.C. office phone is 202-224-5244 and I’m getting the Portland office as 503-326-7543.

I’m thinking about calling Bill Nelson and telling him I want the same deal. We’re ALL Americans, right?

    The senatorial portion of the Oregon Congresscritter delegation have long been weasels. Wyden is merely carrying with an old tradition.

    But it’s dirty pool, designed to save his senatorial a$$ from being booted out of his comfortable senatorial chair.
