Well, You guys were right

Our MN state lawsuit and task force and bills seem to be coming to nothing. You all were right. :frowning:

Thanks for keeping expectations in check.

Just to keep my spirits up, I gotta hear this one again. Same old song and dance…

@mohe0001 they may be right this time, but perseverance will wear the lawmakers down over time. Being right isn’t everything. Sometimes you just gotta fight right or wrong for what you believe in. Now put up yer dukes!

It makes me feel just terrible because those parents who lost their son have been working relentlessly. They are out every day, all over the country working for lower insulin prices. Our stupid state government does nothing. https://www.kansascity.com/news/nation-world/article211260394.html

I knew Gov. Goofy way back in the day - he would have helped I am sure.

He was one of the most decent people who ever lived.

A big thank you to all that keep this issue alive and out in the public and political eyes. Fair play always prevails but like a cure for diabetes can take decades to materialize. In the meantime keep the faith and thanks again for the time and attention all have put into this.

hehehe, is Gov Goofy supposed to mean Wellstone? I’ve never heard that before. Thats funny. Or is it Perpich? https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-2008-07-27-0807260329-story.html

Never get between a corporation and its profit. It will always end in tears when they have already bought the politicians.
