Testimony of Twila Brase, President and Co-founder
Presented by Matt Flanders, Legislative Specialist
". . . We stand in strong opposition to SF 2047. We believe this bill is against the interests of parents in making a truly informed choice about whether the state of Minnesota shall permanently retain and use their children's personal genetic information . . . "
"The bill title says that this is a marketplace but according to the bill on line 2.21 the marketplace is created as a board ... Just the fact that we keep talking about a marketplace is problematic to our organization because it is actually a state board ... but the really big deal is to understand that it is the largest data sharing system in the history of this country and it will be the largest data sharing system in the history of this state."
CCHF's president testified at a hearing regarding the state of Minnesota being able to take and use $42.5 million without legislative approval to continue the building of the health insurance exchange which was executive ordered by Governor Mark Dayton. CCHF describes what the exchange really is and why they need to stop it.
Sent in: September 26, 2012 - This letter provides a summary of at least 15 reasons our organization supports the repeal of the health insurance exchanges provisions in the PPACA, the defunding of all exchange establishment and IT grants, the end of all funding for state, federal or federally-facilitated exchanges, the end of all funding for the Federal Data Services Hub, and ultimately, the repeal of the entire PPACA.
First of all, to be clear, this is not a marketplace. It’s a government bureaucracy.
