Just the start...It's time to completely scrap Obama Care and start from new.

I wonder if he actually used the term "ObamaCare" in his letter.

I couldn't read the whole WSJ article, so maybe there is more there, but Wyden speaks for himself:

I went back to read the story and for some reason most of it has been cut. I don't know if it's my computer or wsj. I doubt his actual letter called it "Obama Care," so I'll concede and call it the health care bill.

It would be nice to have health insurance coverage for everyone, free of charge. In a perfect world. Since it's not ... let's take care of the financial enviroment, get people employed, and back to full employment (from under-employment) and start with things such as: competition among insurance plans between states.

We recently had a local fair. There were two "older" people walking around with signs on their hats.

It read "Stop Forced Obamacare". I ask the one man if he received Medicare? His answer "yes".

They were trying to get people to sign a petition. ))shrug((

...and the WSJ misrepresented Wyden's position. Is it a lie or just a simple ooopsy misrepresentation. Wyden position is clear...the WSJ's position is murky.

Medicare was in place before 'Obamacare', so not sure what your point is? Now if we talk about the changes that HCR caused to Medicare I can understand that man's POV.
