Minnesota Democrats push back on health care repeal efforts

Minnesota Democrats are waging an all out push back on efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which is also known as the health care law.

Gov. Dayton will participate in a 3pm White House Conference Call with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to discuss the “impact that repealing the Affordable Care Act would have on the state’s economy, residents and businesses.”

DFL Rep. Keith Ellison also announced on his Twitter feed that he’ll hold a conference call to discuss his opposition to repealing the law.

Meanwhile, the DFL Party is holding a news conference at noon today in Duluth to “highlight the benefits of the health-care reform law and urge Rep. Chip Cravaack to vote no in this week’s House vote on repeal.” Cravaack campaigned heavily against the health care law.

The U.S. House is scheduled to vote on the health care repeal this week. The measure is likely to pass but is unlikely to pass the Senate. President Obama also opposes efforts to repeal the law.
