Few states are as reliably Democratic in presidential elections than my state of Minnesota. We haven’t voted for a Republican since Richard Nixon in 1972, whose claim not to be a crook was a pre-eminent example of a presidential whopper until just recently. Minnesota is the only state not to have voted for Ronald Reagan at least once. The Land of 10,000 Frozen Lakes voted enthusiastically for Barack Obama in both elections, buoyed at least in part by his promise to reform the health-care system without creating any headaches for its consumers.

How’s that Hope and Change working out for Minnesotans? Well, 140,000 of them may have buyer’s remorse now (via Tom Bevan):

“Clearly, what Obama said about ‘if you like your plan you can keep it’ was false,” said retired Bloomington police officer Dan Murphy, who recently got a letter from his insurance company offering him a modified plan that meets the standards of the Affordable Care Act, including maternity coverage, which he does not need. The new plan would jack up his monthly premium by $210, or about $2,500 a year. “That’s a big ouch,” Murphy said.
