Oregon Senator Ron Wyden says repealing President Obama's federal healthcare program is not the best approach because people with pre-existing health conditions will no longer be protected. But the Senator does support a proposal to allow states to opt-out of the federal health program if they can create a more affordable system. Vermont Senator Peter Welch says his state is seeking a waiver to move toward their own single-payer system. But current law requires the State to wait until 2017.  The proposal by Wyden and Massachusetts Senator Scott Crown would move the date up to 2014.
