Misplaced trust

Posted: July 19, 2012 - 12:04am

The governor nixes state-run health exchange because it doesn’t make sense to spend Alaska’s dollars to set up an exchange when so much uncertainty exists about how to implement it and how to gain federal approval.

However, the governor has no problem in giving billions of state dollars to the oil companies with no strings attached and so much uncertainty that exists as to what benefits if any, the state may gain from the giving of these billions of state dollars to the oil companies.

It doesn’t make sense to not trust the federal government on health care, but to trust 100 percent the oil companies in giving the states billions of dollars in the hopes that the state will get a square deal from them.
