Wyden Criticizes the Democratic Health Reform Product
Given his long record interest on the subject (which Anchor Rising was reporting on before reporting on the details of healthcare reform was a big thing in the blogosphere), Oregon Senator Ron Wyden’s (D – Oregon) strong skepticism about Democratic healthcare reform plans is a potentially significant development.
From an article posted last night at the Oregonian newspaper’s website…
The Senate’s leading health care proposal is seriously flawed, Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden said Tuesday, declaring that it fails to fulfill President Barack Obama’s primary reforms and could force millions of Americans to pay more for the medical care they receive.
“Under this bill as it is written now, more than 200 million Americans would not get choices like the president of the United States called for,” Wyden said in an interview. “Middle-class people certainly will pay more, based on the draft we’re seeing.”
