Opinion: Why we should start talking about a state insurance mandate
State Sen. Scott Jensen (R- Chaska), one of only two doctors in the Minnesota Senate, recently wrote an editorial in the Star Tribune. "I have been asked if I would support a discussion regarding a state-based mandate for health care," he wrote. "Yes, I would engage such a conversation -- why wouldn't I? Health care is infected with big problems, and easy solutions are not looming on the horizon. Legislators are in no position to close their minds to an idea that has received support from both sides of the aisle over the last 30 years." MPR host Tom Weber talked with Jensen about what an individual mandate would mean for Minnesota - and how to start the conversation.
