It happened BEFORE Dayton and the DFL began their new social engineering experiment. So, what did they predict? And why did they reinvent the wheel and fix something that was not broken?

Torture the numbers long enough and they will confess. The drop is due to the documented increase in working Minnesotan's subscribing to family coverage with their employer's health insurance. MN has seen a drop in unemployment. That number also correlates EXACTLY with what would be expected in a decrease in parents with children and not having health insurance.

Huh. Go figure. The number of children without health insurance falls and the conservative scholars come out to dismiss this as some sort of bad coincidence. Truly, what is wrong with you that you can find something to complain about in a story about children gaining health insurance? Are you that desperate to apply your petty political stances?

Thank goodness that children in MN have a chance in this world. You cant go to school and study if you don't feel well. The Republicans don't care about education or health issues, just making sure their friends are taken care of. They are suppose to represent all of us not just a select few.

Are you that desperate to apply your petty political stances?--------------Huh. Go Figure. The left somehow blames the conservatives for something that they did not do. No one said it was a bad coincidence. No one is complaining. What people are pointing out is that the story was wrong why 16,000 children have insurance. If pointing out inaccuracies is something you don't like, don't read the board.

BTW, tell us, what happened to the taxes of the Middle class and poor with Obama and Dayton took over? they went UP. so, I guess when the GOP were in charge, you were one of the select few you complain about.

This is why health care reform is so badly needed.

Today we learn that just 1,700 people have actually "bought" a policy through MNSURE. Worse, MNSURE is unable to transmit the data on a single one of these 1,700 to an insurance company so they are actually covered. The state said late yesterday it was "still working" on this problem and expected a solution in "weeks", not months...
