I'm prouder of Dayton every week - he's doing a solid, responsible and thoughtful job.

It's time for the Republican Party to stop their temper tantrums and enter the 21st Century unafraid.

"A smartly designed exchange could help hold down costs by prioritizing plans that deliver affordable, quality care." Why would the GOP want the government to behave in a smart and efficient way that serves the needs of taxpayers? They don't. Their goal is to make government as ugly and dysfunctional as possible, no matter the cost and this one more sad example.

from the editorial: "the GOP needs to act, not bow to the anti-Obamacare absolutists in the party." But Senator Hann is one of those absolutists. As long as David Hann is in a position of authority on health care, nothing on the subject will be accomplished by the Legislature. Senator Hann needs to step aside and let someone else take charge, someone who is capable of getting the work done.

"Republican lawmakers also could have checked in more often with state officials. Concerns about the GOP's input -- or lack thereof -- should have been handled with phones calls long before now instead of a news conference after the session's end." - - - Who better than legislative leadership to ask pointed questions???? Does a press conference or a phone call give more facts?
