He sent Governor Kitzhaber a letter this week saying the Governor should close down Cover Oregon and send back any federal funds for the state exchange not spent.

 

He thinks Oregonians should turn to the federal health exchange.

 

"So I do think that's a realistic possibility.  I want to press forward and stop the bleeding and send back what money we can and help these folks."

 

Conger thinks there maybe as much as 200 million left of the 300 million in federal funds given to Oregon to set up the state health exchange.

 

He wants the Governor to return any unused funds to the U.S. Treasury to pay down the national debt.
