Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said she would support repealing the Affordable Care Acts individual insurance mandate, giving a potential boost to the Republican effort to pass a massive tax cut package next week.
I believe that the federal government should not force anyone to buy something they do not wish to buy, in order to avoid being taxed, Murkowski wrote in an opinion piece published Tuesday by the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.
Murkowski was careful, however, to stop short of saying she would vote for the Senate GOP tax plan. She instead focused the entire op-ed on her views about the Affordable Care Act

No way that dingbat wrote this. Staffer and lobbyist CYA spin is what this is.
All these damn women politicians use their feelings to justify anything they do. How about you just follow the constitution and respect the small role the federal government is supposed to have? The answer is that doesn’t satisfy their feelings to help ppl.....with tax dollars of course.
“The answer is that doesnt satisfy their feelings to help ppl.....with tax dollars of course.”
A friendly correction: with YOUR tax dollars.
She’s negotiating her price...
Sexual predators aren’t the only sort of degenerate to be found on the Hill...
Wonder how much this will cost US? Murky doesnt work for free.
Wow. I wonder how they got to her. Gonna be expensive... Thanks entropy12.
Too little too late. What nonsense
This and many other senate republicans need gone!
Look out...in all likelihood after the dust settles all we’re going to have is women politicians.
What doppelganger took over her body?
Is she also maybe playing a game in which mccain and collins are involved, namely, she’ll play the conservative while they do the usual defection to the democrat side and oppose the bill? Next time around, it’ll be collins in the barrel, then mccain?
...WITH the right amount of kickbacks and hand-greasing, that is.
Something tells me one day Trump, after seeing first-hand who/what these political cretins REALLY are, is gonna go ape-sh t on them during his next State of the Union.
...and it'll be a beautiful thing to witness...if he does.
,,,, how nice of you Lisa ,, to actually do something positive ,, I just can’t image . . . .
I’m all for repealing the Obamacare individual mandate. Frankly, I don’t care what Murkowski’s reason for her position is, I’m just glad she’s for repealing it.
And totalitarian socialism.
In return for her vote, Murkowski got ANWR to be opened up for oil leases. Trump is going to do it anyway. Might as well get something for your vote.
