You really know how to screw things up. I guess "Community Organizer" does not translate into "Real World Organizer". Utopia only exists in Russia and Cuba-if that's what you are looking for.

We in Minnesota should be proud of Medica and I am personally dismayed in my health insurance provider Health Partners. If Medica can figure it out what is Health Partners and Blue Cross doing waiting for some "price signal" to gouge the customer ?

Really, Blue Cross? The new law says you have to cover children. Suspending sales of child policies to get around the law makes you look really, really bad. They're kids, they're sick and they need insurance.

Republicants are clueless when it comes to even thinking of giving a rip about those less fortunate. Pathetic.

Think this is bad? It only gets worse. A lot worse from here. Just wait another 15 months of dealing with this nonsense, and 80% of the population will be in arms (or WITH arms) once they finally realize what they just got sucked into.

If you do, it says a lot about the IQ of the people who vote for Republicans, which actually does explain a lot. BCBS and HP are doing nothing more than playing games here. It is not complicated. Unless you are a republican I guess.

how is it republicants fault? these are NON-Profits not selling in this state! so who is to blame for that? the greedy corporations? Only Non-Profits health insurance companies can sell in this state. That is the problem. No competition. Why are the prices the same for profit and non-profit health insurance companies? think about that.

"They say they expect to resume sales soon, as new guidelines become clear." The quote is from paragraph four.
