Gov. Dayton-GOP fight looming

It isn’t a secret that there’s a major fight looming between Gov. Dayton and Republican leadership on the issue of health care. I’ve written about the difference in the details between Gov. Dayton’s proposal and the Republicans’ proposal before. (Here’s one of the posts.) Saying that the difference between Gov. Dayton’s proposal and the Republicans’ […]

Gov. Dayton’s latest hissy fit

Gov. Dayton’s last day in office can’t come soon enough. Saying that our governor is a spoiled rich brat with a short fuse is understatement. This time, Gov. Dayton says that he’s running out of patience with the GOP over MNsure. This article quotes Gov. Dayton as saying “I’m running out of patience” after accusing […]

LFR’s 12th Blogiversary

Today marks LFR’s 12th blogiversary. When I started blogging, social media didn’t really exist to any large extent. Twitter wars hadn’t started. We certainly didn’t have Twitchy chronicling the provocative things people said on Twitter. In fact, Twitter didn’t take off until Nancy Pelosi shut down the House of Representatives rather than vote on the […]

Dayton-DFL MNsure alternative

I wrote this post to highlight Gov. Dayton’s fearmongering on the MNsure/ACA reform. This weekend, he said “It’s a great political slogan. I think it had a major impact on some of the legislative races. But it’s another thing to deal with the reality of what you put in its place. They better look before […]

The MNsure debate just changed

The MNsure/individual market debate just changed dramatically. This article highlights what LFR has been talking about for more than a month. The article starts by saying “Medica has hit its enrollment cap for those buying through the MNsure state-run exchange, meaning only one option for people in dozens of Greater Minnesota counties who want to […]

Gov. Dayton’s latest hissy fit

Ever since Republicans took control of Minnesota’s state House of Representatives, Gov. Dayton has thrown a hissy fit against Republicans pretty much every week. Based on this Strib article, it’s apparent that Gov. Dayton’s hissy fits will continue through the end of his administration. In a sharply-worded letter to Speaker Daudt, Gov. Dayton said “I […]

Minnesota’s health care crisis

This op-ed by Peter Nelson, the “President and Senior Policy Fellow at Center of the American Experiment and a member of the Minnesota Health Care Financing Task Force”, highlights the fact that MNsure and the ACA are a disaster. For instance, Nelson highlights the fact that residents “from Red Wing to Lake City to Wabasha […]

MNsure: very unfair & deplorable

The politics surrounding the MNsure crisis took a bizarre turn yesterday when a politician stated that “It’s a real breakdown in the functioning of the Affordable Care Act”, then said “I take it very, very seriously. And I deplore it.” That politician wasn’t Speaker Daudt, though Daudt had some harsh words to say about MNsure. […]

DFL losing the outstate PR battle

Saying that this editorial doesn’t have a pro-DFL tone to it is understatement. Let’s start with where the editorialist says “when Gov. Mark Dayton pocket vetoed HF 848 which would’ve provided significant tax relief to the citizens of Minnesota, it sort of felt like something major was lost.” I don’t think Gov. Dayton realizes that […]

The Times’ dishonesty

The Times’ latest editorial reads more like DFL chanting points than an editorial that required original thought. Even the commenters noticed the Times’ dishonesty. What they noticed is that the Times said “As the final hours of the session ticked away, the House inserted into the omnibus tax bill a measure that gives about $32 […]

DFL’s lies, continued

This LTE from Carolyn Nieters contains the obligatory DFL lie. Ms> Nieters fulfilled her obligation to the DFL by saying “I saw in the news that House Republicans like Rep. Jim Knoblach proposed investing exactly zero dollars of our $900 million surplus toward education for our community. Zero! Yet their plan includes doling out tax […]

Rep. Davids highlights Gov. Dayton’s incompetence

If Greg Davids’ op-ed illustrates anything, it’s that Gov. Dayton isn’t a competent decisionmaker. Actually, Rep. Davids’ op-ed proves another thing. It proves that MNsure’s administrators and DHS bureaucrats are essentially worthless: DHS and MNsure are simply shrugging their shoulders at the problem. “It’s not MNsure’s job to send the notices,” said one of many […]

Dayton’s disaster, Part I

It’s hard to take Mark Dayton seriously anymore. With the list of crises that he’s created, with the help of a DFL legislature, growing seemingly exponentially, it’s hard to view him as competent. The latest crisis is the MinnesotaCare/MNsure crisis, which everyone is reporting on. Here’s the Pioneer Press’s article explaining the latest crisis: At […]

Rep. Davids: MNsure is the DFL’s mess

Greg Davids’ op-ed didn’t mince words in going after the DFL’s MNsure debacle: Thissen calls MNsure “health-care reform,” but in reality, it is nothing more than a health-care nightmare. According to the MNsure board of directors, fewer than 10,000 households have submitted payment for plans that they’ve applied for through MNsure. This is far short […]

Rep. Davids to Gov. Dayton: Fix MnSure first

Thursday morning, Rep. Greg Davids sent a letter to Gov. Dayton about MnSure. Here’s that letter: Rep. Davids Letter to Gov. on Active Purchaser by Minnesota House Republicans In the letter, Rep.
