Obama Care Blow Back.

From the L.A. Times.
By Duke Helfand

"Major health insurance companies in California and other states have decided to stop selling policies for children rather than comply with a new federal healthcare law that bars them from rejecting youngsters with preexisting medical conditions.

Anthem Blue Cross, Aetna Inc. and others will halt new child-only policies in California, Illinois, Florida, Connecticut and elsewhere as early as Thursday when provisions of the nation's new healthcare law take effect, including a requirement that insurers cover children under age 19 regardless of their health histories."

on these upcoming elections... we need to remember our so-called representatives who voted in favor of Obamacare despite the fact that Oregonians asked them not to.

Two names come to mind, Ron Wyden and Peter DeFazio.

And now Ron Wyden is back stepping to have Oregon excluded from Obamacare when he was actually one of the deciding votes which enacted it.

Sadly, DeFazio I feel has been a good representative in the past but I think it's time for both of them to retire from politics or at least take a break from it.
