I am supporting Jeff Erdmann for Congress, and I am supporting him for many reasons (his belief that everyone should have medical coverage, his belief in the out-state farmer, etc.) but mostly because Jeff is an educator. We need educators like Jeff in Congress.

Viewpoint: Bipartisan health care solutions are needed to boost rural America
At one of Minnesota Farmers Union's rural issues discussions last spring, a farmer told us that his yearly health insurance premium plus deductible was more than $40,000. There was hardly a dry eye in the room when he spoke about this. Meanwhile, federal legislators have been unable...
