Fourteen MNsure managers were paid bonuses totalling more than $26,000 in November as Minnesota launched its troubled online health insurance exchange, state officials said Wednesday.
After MNsure went online Oct. 1, software problems bogged down website users and led to long delays for callers to its overwhelmed call center in St. Paul.
Rep. Joe Hoppe, R-Chaska, first raised questions about the bonuses in a letter to Gov. Mark Dayton on Tuesday.

So this is nothing new for failure-inducing chuckleheads.
And, don’t forget, the original administrator of the program took a vacation as the system was rolled out and was crumbling. More proof government can’t efficiently handle a program, and Obamacare, MNSure, etc. are proving it more every day.
They probably got a bonus for delivering it “on time.” It didn’t work, but they met their date.
I think they got bonuses for making sure that they developed a product guaranteed NOT to work. Creating chaos in the health insurance industry/advancing the agenda, doncha’ know!
Dayton took “responsibility” for the debacle. So get your check book out Marky.
I made it to work on time in a snowstorm during rush hour today.
I should get a bonus!
Kurt Zellers said today that Dems even blocked his attempt to prevent MNSURE phone center workers from working there if they are convicted felons .
Dems protect their constituents.
