Begich Statement on Parnell Health Care Lawsuit


U.S. Sen. Mark Begich today released the following statement after Gov. Sean Parnell announced the State of Alaska will be joining a lawsuit to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:

“At a time when Alaska’s unemployment rate is at record highs and families are struggling to make ends meet, the administration of Governor Sean Parnell has decided to spend countless hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars on a lawsuit of dubious merit which is unlikely to be successful. That level of state dollars and resources could be better spent keeping our economy healthy, creating jobs for Alaskans and protecting public safety.”
