The Oregon Exemption From Obamacare

If Obamacare is so great, why is Sen. Ron Wyden seeking an exemption for his home state of Oregon?

One of the most innovative voices in the health care debate, Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), is accelerating the process of exempting his state from some of the national reforms passed under President Barack Obama.

In addition, he strongly suggested that the state should use the provision to exempt Oregon from the individual mandate, which would penalize those individuals who refuse to purchase insurance coverage. The mandate was a feature of Wyden's own health care bill but has proved to be remarkably unpopular among voters.

So it looks like Wyden was FOR the mandate before he was AGAINST it.
