Dayton: MNsure has work to do but it still has brought insurance to many
June 18, 2014 — 6:28pm
Gov. Mark Dayton said on Wednesday that MNsure clearly has 'work to do' but has been successful in bringing down the state's rate of uninsured Minnesotans.
The DFL governor's comments came in the wake of a Deloitte Consulting report that found that many areas of the health insurance exchange website were not working as they should.
The governor said Wednesday afternoon that he had only read headlines on the latest report, because he was in a Board of Pardons meeting for most of the afternoon. But, he said, that the consulting firm found problems was "not surprising."
"They’ve got a lot of work to do. They’ve known that for some time," he said.
The health exchange he signed into law has still proved a boon to the state, Dayton said.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
