Orange County Supervisor Janet Nguyen is in a bit of a bind. She is running for the 34th State Senate District next year, but as a Supervisor in the First District, which includes Santa Ana and Anaheim, she has to take positions that most Republicans won’t like.
For example, while ObamaCare is crashing and burning, Nguyen is actively supporting it. Here is what she wrote in her latest newsletter:
Through the month of November, I hosted a series of workshops to help answer questions surrounding the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Representatives from the Orange County Health Care Agency, the Social Services Agency, CalOptima were present to help address many areas of interest, including: how the new laws will impact MediCal and MSI coverage, how to navigate the new healthcare exchanges, and answer any other questions the attendees had.
I want to thank the hundreds of residents who attended to learn about the ACA and all of the agencies that participated.
Remember that Nguyen took over the CalOptima board – a move that got her in hot water with the Feds when she immediately started shaking down the medical community for campaign contributions.
You know it is not too late for the OC GOP to find a better candidate than Nguyen. I know for a fact that the Democrats are thrilled that she is running. They see her as an easy to defeat candidate and I must agree with that assessment.
