According to a recent study, Alaska is either in a recession or on the brink of one. It’s time for non-partisan solutions, not playing Russian Roulette with the economy.
Alaska will lose 4,000 jobs statewide by September. Blocking a vote on a Medicaid Expansion bill that’s passed in Democratic and Republican states, and which would create 4,000 Alaska jobs, isn’t smart politics. The public supports Medicaid expansion across party lines, but Republican legislative leaders decided to block this bill from House and Senate floor votes during 140 days of regular and special sessions.
