A new analysis of the Obamacare repeal and replace proposal being considered in the U.S. House of Representatives this week by the Washington, DC-based Center on Budget and Policy Priorities says Alaskans would see their healthcare tax credits cut by almost twice as much as any other state.
U.S. Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan (both R-AK) issued the following statement after an hour-long meeting with President Trump and Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke at the White House this afternoon. The group discussed a wide array of issues important to Alaska.
If Trump and the GOP-controlled congress can’t dismantle Obamacare as they have promised to do for years, they could face a combination of that “bloodbath” backlash — or at least a depressed turnout — from their rank-and-file conservative base while simultaneously raising the profile of the issue and handing Gov.

Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) today released a statement on the House’s proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare. While the congressman did say he is committed to moving away from Obamacare, he stopped just short of offering his support for what his chamber’s leadership put forward saying, “I will continue to review the House’s proposal and determine whether it supports the goals of reforming our healthcare system in a manner demanded by the Alaskan people.”
Campaign financial reports required to be filed with the Alaska Public Offices Commission (APOC) 30 days prior to Anchorage’s election day tell two stories: which campaigns are for real and which political party is most energized.

Sullivan’s family business, Meyer’s ethical conundrums, and Alaska GOP fears Walker. It’s Friday in the Sun!!!
We’ve been hearing for weeks that anyone meeting with Alaska’s congressional delegation or their staff is being told that even their GOP colleagues in D.C. aren’t eager to move the President’s agenda. Now, multiple reports are detailing the specifics of that dysfunction.
