Health Insurance Garage Sale

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota wants the state to make health insurance a legal requirement for all Minnesotans.

The proposal could cost the state up to 911 (m) million dollars per year to extend coverage to its nearly 400-thousand uninsured residents.

$911M to cover 400k uninsured = $2277 per person per year.

What MN needs to do is buy the insurance from CA. The folks who are pushing BS 840 are counting on covering 7M uninsured for $8B . . . about $1142 per person per year.
