In exchange for what he wants

The governor is not willing to go forward with the Medicaid expansion because it is not the program that he wants. We all know that the governor has done all that can be done to get the oil companies as much money as possible.

Perhaps an exchange can be made where the working poor would send in their dividend checks to the governor so that he could turn them over to the oil companies in exchange for their Obamacare. In this manner the governor would have the program that he wants, the oil companies would get the needed cash to do what they want and the working poor would get Obamacare. This would be a win, win, win program that would fill everyone’s needs. If things stay the way they are, then no one will get what they want or need.

Letter: A state income tax is fair and equitable

The courage and integrity of our legislators will be tested. Last year they failed to step up to the plate. Our courageous governor had the fortitude to do so. The time has come for Alaskans and those who work here to pay for the services received. Read more
