Party Chair Casey Steinau states, “We're disappointed, but not surprised, that the Republican-controlled House voted in favor of this corporate welfare tax giveaway masquerading as a health care bill. Looking at American political history, this is one of the biggest transfers of wealth from the middle class to the wealthy elite. This bill passed with a yes vote from Representative Don Young, who showed where his true allegiances lie: with the insurance industry and millionaires, not Alaska families.
“Nonpartisan analysts as well as the American Medical Association, AARP, and many other advocacy groups have all said that Alaskans will suffer disproportionally under Trumpcare 2.0. We call on the US Senate, and Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan, to do the right thing, stand up for Alaskans, and reject this proposal once and for all.”
