Sen. Sullivan Explains Decision To Vote For 'Better Care Reconciliation Act'

By  | 

Alaska Republican US Senator Dan Sullivan posted a video and detailed letter to his constituents on his Facebook page, regarding healthcare reform.

In the video, Senator Sullivan thanked the thousands of Alaskans who wrote letters and attended his town hall meetings regarding the difficult discussion of how to decrease healthcare costs in Alaska.
He urged viewers to take the time out and read the detailed letter discussing aspects of the Better Care Reconciliation Act, or BCRA, which he says people might not have known about prior to the senate vote.

The letter pleads his case for voting in favor of the BCRA.
He emphasizes that he would not have voted for a bill that would have resulted in thousands of Alaskans losing their insurance coverage.

Although the BCRA did not pass, Senator Sullivan discusses how he is still going to fight for healthcare reform.

"I'm going to continue to focus on trying to reform our healthcare system in a way that helps our state, helps our country, and if you take a look at the letter, I think it's going to give you an opportunity to see what some of those issues might be. And I'm going to work with anyone, Democrats, Republicans, on this important issue, but I really wanted to thank everybody again, on all the input that you gave us over the last several months on this very important topic. It's an honor to serve all of you as your United States Senator. Thank you."
