"The biggest cost in this bill is actually put off until next biennium—a costly Obamacare bailout. [Minnesota] Taxpayers will be on the hook $406 million in fiscal years 2016-17 with this shift and gimmick. The bill requires the Healthcare Access Fund (HCAF) shortfall,...

Unless the SPPD has video of Lollie handing that overweight, aggressive copper a doughnut, I fear Coleman's gonna need a much bigger tin cup for this year's "we're broke tour" of the capitol.
