Minn. Gov. calls BCRA 'catastrophic'

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton (D) said the Senate GOP's Better Care Reconciliation Act would have a "catastrophic" effect on Minnesota healthcare, according to Fox 9.

"They talk about giving governors more flexibility... the only flexibility we're going to be given is deciding who to cut and what to cut," said Mr. Dayton.

Mr. Dayton said Minnesota would be hit by cuts to federal funding for its MinnesotaCare program in 2019, and the Department of Human Services estimates 1.2 million Minnesota residents will be at risk of losing coverage.
