State Representative Conger went on the Lars Larson show Monday to defend himself again over charges that he voted for Obamacare.

 

He told Lars he voted for Cover Oregon -- to give the state more control over its healthcare, but didn't vote for Obamacare.

 

Lars was having none of it -- and went on to accuse him of making money as a lawyer representing non profits setting up coordinated care organizations.

 

Conger:  "Its part of the Medicaid reform  not part of Obamacare. I'm really glad I went on your show again Lars, only to be hijacked again." 

 

Lars: "Jason, I'm just asking the questions, if you don't have answers,  that ain't my problem."

 

Conger says Wehby is pro-choice, pro-gay marriage and pro-amnesty and supports government run healthcare.

 

She won the straw poll at the Dorchester Conference, but Conger says she did not attend the more conservative conference at Clackamas last weekend.
