Not a single citizen of the state of Alaska have signed up for the Obamacare exchange. The Associated Press reports that Alaska senator Lisa Murkowski, a Republican, has written a letter to Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius about the problems with the health insurance exchanges set up by the federal government:
As America Rising points out, Mark Begich, Alaska's Democratic senator who voted for Obamacare and is up for reelection next year, told reporters in June that he would be aggressive in defending the law and helping his constituents sign up for the exchanges.
"I don't run from my votes," he told the AP. "Politicians who sit around and say, 'That's controversial so I better run from it,' just ask for trouble. Voters may not always agree with you, but they respect people who think about these issues and talk about them."
