Oregon Senator Ron Wyden is home for the August Congressional recess, and gave us his only sit-down interview before he heads back to Washington,D-C.
Senator Wyden is at the center of the health care reform debate.

His "Healthy Americans Bill",co-sponsored by Utah Senator Bennett is getting a lot of bi-partisan support.
Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham has said he'd likely vote for it.

You've heard a lot of gnashing of teeth at town halls across the country, but not too many details.
Join me for this in-depth interview with Senator Wyden, and get details on his bill that he says promotes health care choices, and would lower your premiums.

Hear what he says about a public health care option, and what he says his bill would guarantee senior citizens about their Medicare benefits.

The Senator also chimes in on what he thinks of the "end of life" proposal from Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer.
My interview with the Senator airs Saturday night at 6:30 on KGW and again on Northwest Cable News at 8:30pm.

Listen then leave your comments here.
Thank you for watching "Straight Talk",and let's keep talking.
