SD-34 Watch: Orange County Democrats Runs Away from Obamacare but Politicizes CalOptima
Posted by Allen Wilson on February 25, 2014
Today, Orange County Supervisor Janet Nguyen releases statement in response to the Democratic Party of Orange County Chairman Henry Vadermeir for politicizing an important issue:
“It is sad that the Democratic Party would attempt to politicize an issue that is so important to so many local people in need of quality health care.
It’s curious that their alleged interest in the program appears in the middle of a political campaign and clearly shows they don’t understand the issues important to the 34th Senate District.
What’s worse is that the local Democratic operatives who issued this release are either ignorant of the facts or purposefully distorted the facts surrounding CalOptima.
They falsely stated that Supervisor Nguyen is the Chair of CalOptima, got the number of CalOptima patients wrong, inaccurately stated that the audit will take years to complete, and conveniently left out the fact that the audit was a routine, standard audit not caused by any one person’s actions.
Supervisor Nguyen stands by her actions to reform CalOptima because they were necessary to ensure transparency, accountability and quality services for the county’s most vulnerable population”
Orange County Democrats are conveniently running away from Obamacare and will do anything to politicize an issue such as CalOptima.
Orange County Democratic Party Chairman should be ashamed of himself!
