Republican Rep. Kurt Zellers of Maple Grove is running for governor, too. He hasn't decided if he would get rid of the exchange because he said "it hasn't been proven not to work yet."
Zellers said he doubts MNsure is going to live up to its promises.
That said, the federal exchange, the technologically challenged website that Minnesota would have to use if MNsure were eliminated, isn't looking like a good alternative to Zellers either. "I think that's even worse" than MNsure, he said.
As for critics of the new health care law, Dayton said they are only out to "disrupt and destroy" it. "Every slight misstep or glitch is jumped upon and they want 400 questions answered," Dayton said. Anything goes positive ... they have no interest in whatsoever."
