Sarah Palin: Less Oil Money for Alaska, Not More
Governor Sarah Palin was once again bashing President Obama again for his government stimulus package, which she quietly accepted a few weeks ago. But then she made a startling statement that Alaskans may want to pay attention to:
She wants less oil revenue for the state of Alaska, not more.
During a recent interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin once again criticized President Obama for “spreading the wealth” while at the same time boasting that Alaska spreads its own wealth. “We have a share of our oil resource revenue goes back to the people who own the resources. Imagine that,” she said.
But later in the interview (and in a part that did not air on Hannity’s program last night) Palin actually said that she would rather have Alaska pull in less money in oil revenues than more.
