It’s an unusual pairing on Capitol Hill. Oregon Democrat Ron Wyden and Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown are joining forces on a Health Care Bill.  The Senators want states to be able to opt out of the federal health law.  Wyden: “What I want is a system that looks much like members of Congress have; with a lot of choice where you can fire your insurance company; where you can hold health care providers accountable.” The Wyden-Brown Bill would give conservative states a chance to prove that market solutions can work, while more liberal states could try out a public option.
