After former Minnesota governor Arne Carlson (moderate Republican) discussed Minnesota Health Care Issues, past and present, on Monday night, two senior DFL legislators were asked about the current legislative situation on health care and what was likely to happen. Senator Linda Berglin, (SD 61) and Representative Erin Murphy (HD 64A) expressed serious concerns about the process that is playing out in the last weeks of the legislative session. Former Governor Carlson argued for a return to civil debate about the issues. He said that until the structural financial problem was solved we were destined to lose ground. Quality of life was the major overriding consideration for many years; it is not a consideration in the current majority’s plan.
