Federal uncertainty clouds Minnesota health care debate

Minnesota health care debate

Minnesota’s health care policy is heading into the abyss as federal and state leaders plot major law changes.
    It’s unclear just what President-Elect Donald Trump will do to the federal health care overhaul. Trump has promised to repeal the Affordable Care Act soon after taking office but hasn’t yet spelled out its replacement.
    Until that happens, Minnesota officials are in the dark. Gov. Mark Dayton is preparing to defend against major changes at the state Legislature where Republicans will take total control in 2017. Legislative Republicans have vowed to make major changes, including dismantling MNsure and moving to the federal exchange.
    Dayton warns GOP lawmakers to “look before they push us over the cliff.”
