Rep. Erin Murphy Statement Opposing For-Profit HMOs

St. Paul, Minn. – As the Minnesota House of Representatives prepares to vote on Senate File 1, Rep. Erin Murphy (DFL-St. Paul) released the following statement in opposition to the bill:

“Minnesotans desperately need relief from rising premiums on the individual market. But the Republican solution is to allow big insurance companies to take even more money out of the pockets of struggling families. This bill guarantees that in the years to come, health insurance companies will put profits over people. There's a reason Minnesota has rejected this approach for over 40 years. Coupled with the national push to repeal the ACA, this would lead to more and more families going bankrupt to support their loved ones. Instead of making life a little easier for some Minnesotans, this change would make life harder for many more. My colleagues should join me in voting against this and insist on a clean bill that does what GOP leaders told Minnesotans they'd do: provide honest, short-term relief.”
