Palin likes to claim that as governor, she ran such a large surplus that she sent $1200 back to every Alaskan. That has bothered me.
You see, I believe that Alaska gets more federal money per citizen (about $3000?) than any other state. Those monies are a large part and/or reason for the surplus. So my question is:
WHY DIDN'T SHE RETURN THAT MONEY TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND EASE OUR TAX BURDENS?Or the feds could buy more bullets, which they are gonna need with those two in charge. But if you are truly against wasteful fed spending, why wouldn't you send it back? Especially since you usually say, "Thanks, but no thanks?"
