Oregon’s U.S. Senator Ron Wyden is glad the U.S. Supreme Court did not throw out the Affordable Care Act.  But he also believes states should have more of a say in what form healthcare reform takes in each state.

 

Senator Wyden says he's introduced some new legislation that will help. “I was able to get in the law a provision that states they could waive out of law and set up its own approach.  Unfortunately, it doesn't take effect until 2017.  So I’ve introduced bipartisan legislation that would start in 2014, it would allow states to have their own approach and I’m optimistic it will have bipartisan support in Congress.”  Wyden says to go back to allowing  insurance companies to discriminate against those with pre-existing conditions, basically goes back to a system that serves the healthy and wealthy.
