One of the main architects defects on Obamacare?

From the article:

Now, that's news. One of the Democratic Party's leading experts on health care wants his state to dump the individual mandate that is among ObamaCare's core features. The U-turn is especially notable because Mr. Wyden once championed an individual mandate in the bill he sponsored with Utah Republican Bob Bennett. We have differences with Wyden-Bennett, but it was far better than ObamaCare and would have changed incentives by offering more choices to individuals and spurring competition among providers and insurers.

  • Funny thing about writing bills, have to write ones your constituents actually agree with to get re-elected. Pity he didn't figure that out a year or so sooner.

  • Well, I don't think too highly of him denying involvement, but I would love to see the states start to go against Obamacare, maybe then we won't have to be bailing out the insurance companies in 5 years.

    Wyden was one of the main architects for the Health care, and now that he may loose his Senate Seat, he is defecting. Denies he had anything to do with it, the little weasel..
