Statement from Senator Michelle Benson (R-Ham Lake) on Governor Mark Dayton’s ACA Decision Governor Mark Dayton wrote a letter today effectively deciding to not change course on MNsure and the Affordable Care Act to allow Minnesotans to keep their plans. He wrote: ‘I have directed Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman to proceed with the current implementation of MNsure and the Affordable Care Act and with the plans made before last week’s announcement. Senator Benson responded with the following statement. (Saint Paul, MN) – “Once again Governor Dayton made a promise he couldn't keep and Minnesota families are hurting as a result. President Obama and Governor Dayton are trying to fix this problem with short-term political decisions instead of looking out for the long-term interests of Minnesotans. They pushed through legislation without bipartisan support that led to the chaos and uncertainty we have today. Republicans will continue to offer healthcare reforms to ensure Minnesota is the gold standard in care.”
