Mn is a cruel state. They would rather the person die than do whatever it takes to keep them alive unless of course they are a wealthy CEO, especially a Health Insurance CEO or Medical Director, Politician, or Celebrity and can pay big bucks. There is and always will be healthcare that the average Working American Citizen doesn't have access to. It's all about the money. So if President Obama, or the Bush's, McCain, or one of their family members got cancer there is special healthcare that they can get but you can't. And it's people like these in this article that make sure of it so don't praise them.
