Letter about Pieper blast


Fri, Jul 11th, 2014
Posted in Preston Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

On the day Jon Pieper blasted me for my Obamacare opposition, it was announced that more “errors” caused 16,000 low-income Minnesotans to lose their health insurance.

Think about that. For months these folks may have avoided the doctor because they didn’t know if they had coverage. Some who did seek medical care have now accrued significant financial debt – debt they cannot afford – and still may face federal financial penalties because their health insurance is in doubt.

And I’m supposed to sit back and watch this cruelty?

Throughout the creation and implementation of MNsure, I’ve offered and supported solutions that could have made our version of Obamacare more bearable.

One of those would have assisted people – like these 16,000 – who were unable to acquire insurance before the IRS deadline. Instead, stubbornness prevailed as Governor Dayton and the legislative majority insisted on maintaining the status quo.

Pieper supports Obamacare in Minnesota as is, without changes.

This means he also has no problem with many Fillmore and Houston county residents paying more than double than they were last year for similar health care coverage; supports wastefully spending hundreds of millions of your tax dollars on a failing website; is OK with 280,000 Minnesotans losing their previous insurance or their doctor; and apparently thinks having 16,000 low-income people in limbo with their health insurance is just a minor inconvenience.

Despite what Pieper says, I’ve always supported affordable health insurance, and I believe we can do better.
