It's gotta be a good move for Dayton. Even the republicans are praising the idea of introducing free market competition into the state's multibillion-dollar health care business. ... Why wasn't this done during Pawlenty though??

It's a good start Governor Dayton. Keep rolling along as progressively as possible.

Isn't it amazing how people can cross party lines when a piece of legislature actually makes sense? People seem to want to blame blind partisanship when in reality both parties are usually completely obtuse to the ideas of what works for everyone and focus on winning points within their own political party.

Might as well tell the doctors they have to provide their services for free.

Here's the good news. Whenever the State and Federal governments have a problem in the future, they just cut YOUR funding for health care. Wow! That's great! It's good to know you are in good hands with the government and you are totally incapable of making any decisions for yourself. Dumbing down of America, stage 1.

I'm all for competition amongst insurers. However, if the government is gonna regulate the reserve funds, they better have their back if the insurance companies dip into the red.

I find it amazing that certain peoples posts are always negative no matter what the subject. Why? It seems impossible that they wouldn't agree with something, sometime.

Wow, the GOP couldn't figure this out and now are railing on Dayton cause it doesn't go far enough? You really can't make this stuff up. Thanks Governor Dayton for being the adult in the room.

...rein in health care costs. Is that why we continually give more to the poor? If they hamstring the insurers, the private sector will have to pick up the difference so the insurers can still make a profit. Just when do we win?
