The mission of mnpACT! is to build a progressive community based upon the core values of respect, dignity and opportunity, by educating people about progressive ideas, advocating for progressive issues, and electing progressive candidates to local, state and federal offices.
The GOP candidates for governor are still making MNsure a main component of their campaigns. But are they offering any real alternatives?
1. Scott Honour - He wants to scrap the state exchange and opt into the Federal exchange. The Federal exchange had as many, if not more, problems than MNsure had at the beginning....and the Fed exchange has maybe made a little more progress on fixing it.

This statement from Kurt Zellers would almost be funny...if it wasn't so ridiculous:
"Democrats, political pundits, special interest groups, and even many Republicans predicted that we wouldn't hold to our principles and that the Republican-controlled legislature would cave to the intense political and media pressure during the shutdown," said Zellers. "But I did not surrender and the GOP legislative majorities did not cave. Instead, it was Governor Dayton who surrendered to us after two weeks."
That was principle? Let's review what happened. Dayton "surrendered" only after the Legislative Republicans agreed to . . .
