Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, R, today is urging President Obama to open up the ongoing health care policy discussion in Washington to the country's governors. 

In a letter addressed to the president, Pawlenty applauds Obama's  interest in getting Republican feedback, but warns it's just as important to consider governors' "hands-on experience in reforming health care" in the states.  Specifically, Pawlenty notes states' past efforts to reform health care--including Minnesota--through market-oriented initiatives.
