Trump has Zinke call Murkowski to say Alaska projects are in jeopardy after TrumpCare "no" vote

Donald Trump Is Reportedly Seeking Revenge On Alaska Over Health Care Vote
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) voted no on GOP efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act this week.

The Alaska Dispatch News reported Wednesday night that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke called Murkowski and fellow Alaskan Sen. Dan Sullivan (R) after Tuesday’s health care vote to let them know her position had put some of their state-specific projects in jeopardy ― particularly those pertaining to energy.

Sullivan told the outlet that Zinke’s phone call carried a “troubling message,” and the interior secretary made it clear to him that the call was in response to Murkowski voting no on the motion to proceed on Tuesday.

She was only one of two Republicans, along with Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), to break from party lines on the vote.

While Murkowski did not respond to Alaska Dispatch News’ requests for comment regarding the phone call, the senator seemed unfazed by the president’s attempts at publicly shaming her.

7. That's A Chris Christie Move....

he would punish an entire town if their mayor didn't fall into line with one of his policies. That's what led to Bridgegate where he punished an entire region. If Alaska's senators have any amount of courage, they call him out on it and dare him to go ahead and do it. There's a reason why Collective Punishment is banned in the Geneva Convention. It's immoral. But that's Trump.

8. So now the country is being run by blackmail. That would make a

great meme. Show President Obama as "black male" and the orange lunatic as "black mail".

10. Murkowski Is Well Liked By Her Alaskan Constituency.....

If Trump follows through on this threat - Trump will have essentially lost any supporters he has in Alaska.

If this is a showdown between Murkowski and Trump - Murkowski will win it.

12. The Dems could easily entice them to switch

What does it take for a Republican to see that their party is being led by maniacs?
