Audio: Sen. Murkowski visits with the Anchorage Daily News Editorial Board
Sen. Lisa Murkowski spent more than an hour talking with the Daily News editorial board Thursday about health care reform. She says constituents seem to be anxious not just about what Congress is doing with health care, but also about piled-on government spending aimed at getting us out of recession, from TARP to the clunkers program.
In the end, she says, even though she has serious disagreements with some of the proposed health care legislation, we can’t just put it aside for another new president 10 years down the road. She believes we’re on an unsustainable course of rising costs.
She hopes a Senate Finance Committee bill still being shaped will provide an acceptable alternative.
