Skip to comments.Dayton: Health Law 'No Longer Affordable'
Posted on 10/12/2016 12:21:00 PM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo
Minnesota's Democratic governor said Wednesday that the Affordable Care Act is "no longer affordable," a stinging critique from a state leader who strongly embraced the law just a few years ago.
Gov. Mark Dayton made the comments while addressing questions about Minnesota's fragile health insurance market, where individual plans are facing double-digit increases after all insurers threatened to exit the market entirely in 2017.
They follow cost concerns and criticism nationwide, including President Bill Clinton saying last week that the law was "the craziest thing in the world" before he backtracked.

Last ditch coordinated attempt by Dems to save Hillary, by admitting it is a failure to try to take the issue away from Trump... Too Little too late.
Bubba floated the its okay to critique it in Ohio last week... the rest are not following suit.
No longer? It’s been an issue for many since its inception.
Well, the Democrat activist types managed to get their AIDS drug cocktails paid for by the white middle class - so I guess that’s all that matters.
That dolt Dayton should have known this when Nazi Pelosi said we have to pass it before we tell you what’s in it.
Following the Democrat script.
Time to pivot to Single Payer.
“We thought we could work with the private insurance industry to provide all Americans with affordable health care. But they were too EEEEEVIL and GRRRRREEEDY. So time
for us to take it over.”
Drip, drip, drip. One more think that makes us all less secure.
Constant tension, constant uncertainty, constant turmoil. Why hasn’t someone recognized we have all the makings of traumatic stress as a nation, at least for the taxpayers of us.
Unaffordable for whom?
Certainly unaffordable for those who pay their own premiums and deductibles.
But for those getting subsidies or on expanded Medicaid, the unaffordability is for the taxpayers.
It has clearly and demonstrably driven up healthcare costs and insurance premiums, both, while sending many doctors into early retirement.
It wasn’t designed to be affordable. It was designed to be disruptive.
So, Mr. 55%-Approval-Rating lied to us?
Oh, ye suckers.

No he knew. This is just moving to phase 2 as planned.
Moving on to single payer, as always planned from the beginning. This time was needed togive them plausible denial/excuse to go there.
Most here knew this was the strategy.
Trumpcare is the only thing that looks like it has a chance of reversing this bureaucratic parasite job now.
Congress exempted themselves from obamacare. You pay for their healthcare along with a big fat pension if and when they retire.
Rep. Tim Walz, D-Minn., “They just didn’t understand how we could save money on this by adding more people to the system, how it was going to impact them in terms of their premiums and their access to care.”
Rep. Tim Walz, D-Minn., “The more people find out whats in there, the happier they are.”
No Republican fingerprints on the disastrous Obamacare fiasco - tee hee hee. Dayton pushed for this and it’s another Democrat fail. What’ll happen to the USA if Hillary gets in the White House? I hate to think.
Obamacare is solid gold for Trump. Give EO 8 year waver. Next elections if Dems win then the taxes go up 10 fold again.
Oh, Please, Dayton knew the deal from the get go. It was never meant to work. He knows that. The only one who didn’t seem to know that was Chief Judas Roberts.
