Rep. Young Comments On Alaska’s Decision To Join Lawsuit Over Health Care


Washington, D.C.Alaskan Congressman Don Young released the following statement today following the announcement by Governor Parnell that Alaska will join other states in filing legal action against the federal government challenging that federally mandated health care is unconstitutional:

“I commend Governor Parnell and Attorney General Sullivan for taking a step towards ensuring freedom for Alaskans.  The recently passed health care legislation was a steep infringement on the liberties of the American people and an intrusion into their lives.  This Administration force-fed America a bill that will increase premiums while growing inefficient government bureaucracy by establishing nearly 160 new boards, commissions, and programs.  The health care legislation is absolutely unconstitutional and joining in this lawsuit is the right thing to do for Alaskans.  I fully support the Governor in this endeavor.  I have already signed on as a cosponsor to H.R. 4910, a bill to repeal the health care legislation, and will do whatever else I can to help him with this at the federal level.”
