JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The National Republican Senatorial Committee is planning robo-calls blasting U.S. Sen. Mark Begich over health care and a carbon tax.

The calls are to be mainly geared toward registered Alaska voters unaffiliated with any political party.

According to a script, the call says Begich “can’t be trusted.” It says Begich told people if they liked their insurance plans, they could keep them under the federal health care law. It also says Begich changed his tune on a carbon tax.

Begich says he doesn’t support a carbon tax. Fact check groups have said claims made by another group that Begich was “on record” supporting such a tax distort or exaggerate his position.

Begich says when he made the comments on insurance plans, it was expected that people could keep their plans.
