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.
Amid reports that Donald Trump was in danger of not getting on Minnesota's presidential ballot, the Trump campaign says everything is in order and voters will have a chance to cast their ballot for him in November.
Interest groups spent less slightly money lobbying state government in 2015 than in the previous year, according to a report released Wednesday by the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board.
Hillary Clinton said Thursday that Donald Trump has unleashed the "radical fringe" within the Republican Party, including anti-Semites and white supremacists, dubbing the billionaire businessman's campaign as one that will "make America hate again."
