Letter: Alaska needs health care

May 9, 2013 

I’m shocked to find myself in agreement with Shannyn Moore (comment, April 27), but it is time that Alaska provided universal health care to all Alaskans.

It is time to call for a constitutional convention for the purpose of eliminating the selfish Permanent Fund dividend individual payout and using those funds to create a state medical benefit program to provide universal health care to all Alaskans.
