It’s almost a year until the convention, but Saint Paul DFL gubernatorial candidate Erin Murphy’s campaign is already doomed.
Perhaps with that in mind, she’s swinging for the (Metrocrat) fences, calling for single payer helathcare:
Murphy criticizes capitalist models of health care, saying that a for-profit model of any part of the health care system is bad for Americans. She tells a story of her dying mother’s struggle to get her insurance company to cover the care she needed for cancer treatments near the end of her life.
“We must guarantee health care for people who are sick, focus on the health of Minnesotans, and control health care costs,” Murphy wrote. “We must make strategic and difficult choices with valuable resources, putting the health of Minnesotans ahead of health insurance profit making.”
Asked how this plan would be paid for, Murphy responded “with golden coins borne down from heaven by unicorns ”
 Fake but conceptually accurate.
