Wyden Upbeat on Free Choice, Public Option
October 20, 2009 -- Sen. Ron Wyden picked up the pressure for his Free Choice Amendment and a strong public option in an appearance today on the Ed Schultz national radio program.
WYDEN: I think that Senate Democrats are going to be there at crunch time. I’ve been talking to a number of conservative Democrats. I think they understand how key it is to hold insurance companies accountable. Some of them were on my legislation, the Healthy Americans Act. I think we’re also going to have more republicans than people think.
