May 2007
State Health Watch;May2007, Vol. 14 Issue 5, p12
The article reports on a proposal by a coalition of doctors, legislators and consumer groups to have a sweeping universal health care system that would require all Minnesotans to have insurance and provide subsidies for those who could not afford it. However, some business and labor organizations complained that the proposal requires insurance without containing costs that make health care unaffordable for many people.
