Reader Opinion: Don't drop health care provider tax
To those that are on Medicaid and Minnesota Care, Sen. Paul Gazelka and Sen. Michelle Benson are threatening to take away access to health care with the elimination of the health care provider tax, which provides $700 million dollars in tax revenue. However, Sen. Gazelka and Sen. Benson have nothing to replace the elimination of this tax revenue. In fact, it would eliminate access to dental care! The GOP claims to be pro-life, but they are not when eliminating access to health care that is guaranteed by the Affordable Care Act!
