Minnesota's governor thinks the health care bill passed by the U- S House...will hurt the country.

Governor Tim Pawlenty was the keynote speaker at a Republican event this weekend in Iowa.

Pawlenty says the health care bill is a mistake that will be too expensive.

He also says the government should not get involved in health care.

PAWLENTY: "Our premiums are going to go up, not down. We're going to have the federal government making healthcare decisions, my goodness, unless you're a Guantanamo detainee, they can't even get us in a reasonable time a vaccine for the H1N1 virus, how are they going to manage our healthcare?"

Pawlenty is reportedly considering a run for the 20-12 Republican presidential nomination.
