Jeff Johnson calls on Tim Walz to give details of "single-payer" healthcare he's promised to implement

Golden Valley, MN -- Today Jeff Johnson is calling for Tim Walz to directly address the specifics of his plan to push Minnesota into a single-payer healthcare system as governor.

While it has been occasionally reported by media outlets that Tim Walz's position is a "Minnesota Care buy-in", that is not his position. Tim Walz has unequivocally stated he supports a Minnesota Care buy-in in the immediate future, then he will usher "single-payer" into law.

The price-tag and consequences of single-payer are staggering and Tim Walz owes Minnesotans answers to the following questions:

1) Studies and the experience of other states indicates this will cost Minnesota at least $17 billion per year. What specific taxes will be raised on Minnesotans to pay for this?

2) Will every Minnesotan lose their existing healthcare plan?

3) What does the Walz plan factor to be the final impact on the number of practicing doctors in Minnesota when they are only paid the equivalent of medicare reimbursement rates?

    Single payer is the #1 issue in the 2018 state election, IMO. We ought to know the likely cost.
