Government minister[edit]

She was the oldest person in the cabinet of Fredrik Reinfeldt from 2006 to 2010. Husmark Pehrsson was indirectly blamed for what had not worked during the introduction of the new health insurance rules in 2008; after the 2010 general election she resigned from the cabinet position on 5 October 2010.

By a memorandum, made at the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs in December 2009 and published in 2011, showed that the government's official line that the law had "unintended consequences" was a later construction. Cristina Husmark Pehrsson and her ministry had not received any hearings for their warnings that some changes would have anomalous consequences. The memo revealed that among the most controversial of the proposal, the far parentheses (sometimes called "scaffold"), was not included in the original proposal but instead was a proposal by the Ministry of Finance in order to save money. Her ministry's proposal had not meant that people should become "zero rated".[2]
