• I will protect the right of workers to organize in virtually every instance. Middle class Alaskans: teachers, nurses, firefighters, seniors, students, and small business owners deserve the protection against laws instituted by politicians that strip away protections to ensure decent wages and benefits. Alaskans deserve better, I will always stand up against attacks on hard working men and women.

• Ensuring that all Alaskans have access to affordable and reliable health insurance is a long term cost saver for the state, but more importantly, will save the lives of Alaskans. Last session I filed a resolution that urged Governor Parnell to accept federal Medicaid expansion dollars under the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act. Expanding Medicaid is a commonsense provision that according to a study by the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium will produce 3,500 new jobs through 2017 and increase economic activity throughout the state by $2.49 billion.

• According to a state issued Medicaid expansion report from the Lewin Group, failing to expand Medicaid will leave 19,900 Alaskans uninsured.
