Sen. Carla Nelson was recently endorsed by the Minnesota Medical Association’s MEDPAC. “Health care is of critical importance to each one of us,” said Sen. Nelson. “And it is of particular importance right here in this senate district, home of our state’s largest private employer, and other leading healthcare institutions. It is therefore a great honor to receive the MEDPAC endorsement.”
Nelson was chosen for the endorsement based on her record of promoting policies that not only promote the health care profession in District 26, but for supporting legislation that benefits all Minnesotans. “I’m rejoicing, that after years of failed attempts, I was able to help lead the successful charge to eliminate the dreaded Sick Tax, a 2% tax on all health care. Taxes on labor, property, and profit are at best a necessary evil, but no-one should add the insult of taxation to actual physical injuries and illnesses,” Nelson remarked.
Also, as the new threat of the proposed surcharge on Medical Assistance emerged, Sen. Nelson was a leader in thwarting this egregious proposal, that would have cost our district $45 million in just the first two years.
“Senator Nelson is a key leader at the Capitol on health care issues. A thoughtful, effective legislator, Senator Nelson is responsive to the concerns of the Minnesota Medical Association, and is a strong advocate for Minnesota’s physicians,” said Eric Dick of the Minnesota Medical Political Action Committee.
“I am honored to be given the MEDPAC endorsement,” Sen. Nelson added. “I was also honored to receive the Legislator of the Year Award from the Minnesota Heart Association and the Stroke Association because of my bill that will help save lives due to bystander CPR training in our schools.”
