The panelists include Alaska Division of Insurance Director Lori Wing-Heier, Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association President and CEO Becky Hultberg and Premera Blue Cross Blue Shield Senior Vice President of Healthcare Service Beth Johnson. KTOO & Alaska Public Media’s Andrew Kitchenman hosts.

Ready to deal this time? Alaska’s Murkowski is in the health-care spotlight. Again.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) is trailed by members of the media in the basement of the Capitol on Tuesday.

Lisa Murkowski walked briskly down a cavernous hallway on the first floor of the Capitol, awash in a small sea of reporters. Suddenly she paused, seemingly overcome by the pressure of the moment.

“You guys — hold,” the Republican senator from Alaska said curtly. “Give me breathing room, please. It gets a little intense. I know you guys don’t feel it, but it’s like, whoa.”

Another effort to replace the Affordable Care Act is underway, and in Washington that means one thing: Murkowski is at the center of it all — under the glare of the national spotlight and squarely on the minds of White House officials and Senate Republican leaders who are strenuously seeking her support.

That’s the way it was Wednesday, as Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La). and Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C). huddled with

Trump administration reportedly threatens Alaska over senator’s health care vote

Trump administration reportedly threatens Alaska over senator’s health care vote

Trump administration reportedly threatens Alaska over senator’s health care vote. WASHINGTON — Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, confirmed Thursday that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke contacted her after her vote against a health care bill earlier this week. The conversation reportedly involved threats of administrative retribution against her home state.

A Murkowski spokesperson told Yahoo News that the moderate Alaska lawmaker received a call from Zinke on Wednesday, and he “told her that the president wasn’t pleased with the vote that she took.”

Trump also expressed those feelings publicly Wednesday, when he tweeted that Murkowski “really let the Republicans, and our country, down yesterday” when she voted against moving to begin debate in the Senate on a series of health care bills.

Trump Threatens The State Of Alaska After Senator Votes “NO” On Healthcare Repeal

Donald Trump is furious that a Republican senator from Alaska – Lisa Murkowski – will not vote for a bill that hasn’t been properly vetted and that would strip 22 million people of their health insurance, so he had the Interior Department make contact with Murkowski and fellow Alaskan Republican Senator Dan Sullivan to threaten the state’s funding and resources. This is stunningly disgusting behavior from the White House, but sadly it is what we’ve come to expect from Donald Trump. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
