And I do think it’s funny that she’s campaigning for “limited government.” Pig is the same person that raised a massive windfall tax on Alaskan oil companies and then threw it back at the people in the form of a tax rebate.
She gave this 1200 dollars to every man, woman and child in Alaska. So… children were getting tax rebates.
On September 5th, 2008 Alaska’s Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell announced the $3,269 check that every eligible man, woman and child in Alaska will receive, which includes the $1,200 windfall profit rebate Palin backed and was approved the previous month. Parnell on the $1,200 windfall profit rebate:
“The royalty dollars that flow through the state are the people’s wealth. The $1,200 resource rebate goes to that philosophy.” [/i]
She sounds like a fucking socialist, if you ask me.
You’re are dumber than a sack of rocks if you think Palin started this. Clear back in 1984 when the wife and I lived there and you were a gleam in your daddy’s eye every resident - man, woman, child - got a Permanent Fund check. Do your fuckin homework. It’s an Alaskan institution not a Palin one.
BTW, no state sales or income tax and a dividend check, based in part on OPEC inflated oil prices, to every resident. That’s socialism?
Ignorance reigns supreme here on TN PWI and it’s usually the loudest mouths who are the most ignorant.
Also, the ACES tax hike was first passed by the legislature just like taxes at the federal level.[/quote]
I don’t care who started it. Obama caught shit in the election for mentioning windfall taxes on oil companies… and what could be more socialistic than taking profits from oil companies and giving it back to the people, while your Lt. Gov. calls it “the people’s wealth.”
From that link:
In 2007 Palin pushed for and enacted a major increase in state oil taxes - a step that generated stunning revenues for Alaska as oil prices soared. The Alaska Oil and Gas Association estimates the state collected $6 billion from Palin-imposed windfall taxes during the fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2008.
