To the Editor,

Dennis DeKeyrel’s and Jerry Grehl’s recent comments about State Representative Greg Davids were outrageous and appalling. Representative Davids has spent the past 30 years helping area residents acquire health insurance. Spreading untrue statements and taking personal potshots because he opposes the Obamacare debacle is unconscionable.

It’s good that these two had the DFL talking points at the ready before penning their letters. 280,000 Minnesotans didn’t lose the health care coverage they preferred? Nah, in DeKeyrel’s world they simply had their “policies discontinued.” Never mind that these Minnesotans liked their insurance and wanted to keep it, and were satisfied with their health insurance rates and deductibles and wanted to keep them – government knew better so they needed to “discontinue” their plans for the greater good.

They tout the enrollment numbers of MNsure, yet the question they cannot answer is how many people purchased MNsure coverage that had been previously uninsured. MNsure has not even attempted to analyze this information. Wouldn’t that be the first question you wanted answered? And then there’s the fact that MNsure’s rates aren’t going to be released until after the election, which is the biggest political cover up of all for the Democrats.

Minnesota had one of the highest levels of resident insurance prior to the implementation of Obamacare. Now, we have spent hundreds of millions and we can’t even answer how many folks who didn’t have insurance now do.

Greg Davids is right for speaking out against Obamacare because Minnesota can do better.

Sincerely,

Doug Baker

Lanesboro, MN
