Friday edition of Up and At 'Em - 6-9AM Twin Cities News Talk AM1130
6AM Hour: Friday starts your day with headlines of the day, and some signs that it's way too cold out.
7AM Hour: Tom Steward joins to update us on April Todd Malmlov's recent holiday vacation, Shannon Tesser has a new movie review for us, and "Ben's Internet Girlfriend!"
8AM Hour: In the final hour, Siri Freeh makes a special third-wheel appearance. We're talking about the unfortunate story of the Duluth student with severe frostbite, and TakeAction MN's plans for the budget surplus.
According to Watchdog.org, April Todd-Malmlov, executive director of Minnesota's version of Obamacare, went on a vacation to Central America in November while there were still problems with MnSure.
Word that MNsure’s top official took a trip to the tropics only added to one applicant’s frustration. Barb Stonebraker faces the loss of her Minnesota Comprehensive Health Association coverage Jan. 1, yet she continues to deal with technical bugs and other problems as she tries to obtain private coverage through Minnesota’s online marketplace.
“I think it’s terrible. I think it’s unconscionable that she would leave when there’s problems and they can’t figure it out,” said Stonebraker, a small business owner in Victoria. “I’ve been trying and I’ve wasted so many hours and hours trying to get an invoice, and I still can’t.”
