Satirical Minnesota State Fair visitors interrupted Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty’s WCCO-AM radio show to, “Thank him,” for turning down $1million in federal funds that would have required public review of health insurance rate increases.

Pawlenty said he didn’t understand. Fair-goer comments on health insurance and health care covered a wide spectrum of attitudes. The protest was organized by TakeAction Minnesota.
