Today, Courtney said he wants Cover Oregon, the state's scandal-plagued health insurance exchange, to disappear, and he will introduce legislation next year to make that happen. 

Courtney spoke out after the board of Cover Oregon met this week and made no decision about whether it would continue to exist after earlier ceding the responsibility for operating an online health insurance exchange to the federal government. Cover Oregon spent $250 million in a failed attempt to build an Oregon-based exchange.
