As most readers know, another way I talk about and engage with interested Alaskans on oil, gas and fiscal issues is through a couple of open Facebook forums. Increasingly, I find they provide a good opportunity to have a useful, open,"town hall"-like discussion on issues as they develop. I know also that, while they don't often participate, many in Juneau follow along and, as a result, the exchanges provide a useful, if indirect means for exploring issues with them as well.
One engagement this morning in one of the forums -- "Thoughts on Alaska Oil & Gas" -- does a good job of capturing the heart of what is important to me, at least, in the Medicaid expansion debate. The post is here if you want to participate.
