Huge healthcare bill spikes a nasty fever in Minnesota
Minneapolis Star Tribune, March 26, 2008
A huge healthcare reform bill in Minnesota has hit a major and potentially fatal roadblock. Legislative leaders said that Gov. Tim Pawlenty had abruptly withdrawn his support for the bill because it lacked support from Republican House members. But a Pawlenty spokesman said that Pawlenty, in fact, never supported this bill because it expanded healthcare rolls without offsetting savings.
