Minnesota’s Democratic governor says the federal health care overhaul “is no longer affordable.”

Gov. Mark Dayton made the stinging critique of the Affordable Care Act today while addressing questions about Minnesota’s fragile health insurance market.

Individual plans are facing double-digit increases after all insurers threatened to exit the market entirely.

Dayton says Congress needs to fix the law to help bring down costs and stabilize the insurance market for shoppers who aren’t covered by employers or public programs.
