Good News for Medicaid Expansion!
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Today I am grateful for Judge Pfiffner's decision to deny the injunction requested by Republican legislative leadership, and to allow the September start date for Medicaid expansion.
This is the next positive step in finally getting health care coverage to thousands of working Alaskans who need it. Attorneys for Republican legislative leadership failed to make a case strong enough to gain even a temporary injunction against the expansion.
I sincerely hope they view this decision, along with the four legal opinions from our own attorneys, as confirmation that their arguments are not valid, and that they should save the state hundreds of thousands of dollars and drop their suit against the Walker Administration.
Most importantly, I am happy for the working Alaskans who will finally have access to good health care coverage, and I am glad the state will finally participate in a program that will benefit all of Alaska economically, and provide thousands of good jobs in our state.
I’m Berta and I’m still listening,
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact my office.
