MN's young 'invincibles' are key to health insurance overhaul
Paul Beach may not feel the weight of it, but he's a linchpin in making the federal health care overhaul work. He's 28, fully employed and uninsured. "I want insurance," he said. "But it's a tossup between eating food or buying health insurance. I'd need a second job just to pay the insurance."

Minnesota's MNsure exchange is firing up an all-out marketing blitz, with young adults one of the key audiences.
