Governor's Statement on Supreme Court Ruling

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Juneau, AK

Governor Sean Parnell today after learning of the U.S. Supreme Court decision issued the following statement:

"On the federal level, it will take congressional action to roll back what now appears to be the single largest tax increase in American history. This tax will not hurt the rich, because they have insurance. It will not hurt the poorest Americans, because it will not apply to them. It is a tax on the working poor and middle class Americans.

"At the state level, we have begun reviewing the U.S. Supreme Court's 193 page decision to determine how other provisions, like mandated state Medicaid expansion, have been affected by the U.S. Supreme Court decision. Alaska can then determine the best approach to the federal law for our state.

"I remain concerned about the impacts of the federal law on individual and state's rights, and with the real life effects of these tax increases on our people and our economy. We will do everything we can in Alaska to limit the impact of Congress' decision to pass this tax increase to Alaskans."
