Bera reverses himself on health care, and GOP rival pounces
Sacramento Bee

Rep.Ami Bera, an Elk Grove Democrat who’s facing a tough re-election in the fall, just gave his Republican opponents a bit more ammunition — by voting with them on health care.

Last summer, Bera voted to delay the mandate for employers to provide insurance, but not for individuals to get insurance. Wednesday, though, he voted for a House Bill to delay the individual mandate, a key component of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law.
