MN lawmaker: No MNSure bills yet this year

Written by

180 thousand Minnesotans are wondering what is going on with MnSure, the state health insurance exchange. Medicaid and MinnesotaCare insurance renewals have been held up by technical problems. State Representative Matt Dean says that has caused some major issues.

Dean says all of those people have yet to get a bill from MNSure for this year, leading to frantic calls to state offices which come with assurances but ongoing confusion.

 

Dean says although nobody has lost coverage as a result of the delay, MinnesotaCare patients are now concerned they will be hit with a bill for their premiums and any medical care they have had in recent months all at once.

Walker says day one priority is to dismantle Obamacare

Written by

Some politicians win elections, but they don't fight.  Others fight, but they don't win.  Scott Walker says he does both, which is a major reason why he's running for president.  Wisconsin's governor launched his White House run in Waukesha yesterday, saying Washington needs new ideas, and the government should leave people alone.

Republican Walker had harsh words about President Obama, saying he's weak on foreign policy, and accusing him of passing too many 'bad' regulations, including Obamacare.  Walker vowed to work on repealing Obamacare on the very first day he takes office as president.

Forest Hills going to 9 holes

Written by

As it turns out, redesign and construction of a hundred year-old golf course doesn't come without complications. Manager of La Crosse's Forest Hills course, Keith Stoll can tell you that.  Even the tunnel that goes under Burlington Northern's railroad tracks has had some unexpected setbacks. He says, after a heavy rain. water that was supposed to flow easily out of the tunnel inexplicably fills it up.  Stoll says Burlington Northern is figuring out how to fix that problem.  Meanwhile, he expects the rest of the revamped course to be completely ready for play by next summer.  On Monday, Stoll informed the city's public works board that Forest Hills would go from 18 holes to 9 on August 10th to accomodate the construction.

Like Onalaska state rep, Steve Doyle who said the bill included no bi-partisanship. The budget, according to Doyle, was all about cuts and a jumping off spot for a Walker presidential run.
 
He says some will not forget the cuts made by republicans come the next election cycle.

 

Doyle says all you have to do is talk to school superintendents, parents of university students, doctors and others effected by the budget and it won't be hard to find those against it a year from now. The budget is set to take effect on Tuesday.

Many in Wisconsin's largest are pointing to this year's surge in violence as reason enough to re examine the state's gun laws. But restrictions on gun ownership won't help stop any crime, maintains republican state senator Van Wanggard.  He says there are criminals who carry guns illegally every day.  Passing more gun laws won't change that. 

 

 

 

Milwaukee has recorded more than 80 murders so far this year, most with guns. More than double the number by the same time last year.
