Health Insurance Exchange Vote 04 Mar 13

The DFL-controlled Minnesota House is set to vote on a “Health Insurance Exchange” today (MON) that is a part of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act. House Majority Leader Erin Murphy says the Health Insurance Marketplace will give more Minnesotans access to coverage–especially small business owners and individuals. But House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt says Republicans have tried in committee to fix problems with the bill and not one Republican amendment has been included yet. Republicans warn the bill moves toward single-payer health insurance in Minnesota and they want a market-driven system.
