Alaska PFD

By Norma Lankerd

First of all, I do not like the idea of Governor Walker wanting to dig into the Permanent Fund to help bail out Alaska. He is acting like Mr. Obama, thinking money grows on trees, so spend, spend, spend. I myself say NO DO NOT TOUCH THE PERMANENT FUND, already pay out of it to run different parts of Alaska and the administration.

Since Alaska passed Marijuana,then tax the people who are selling it, tax the people who SELL alcohol, tax each of the Cruise Ships that come in to Alaskan waters.

So I never did get where the $$$ came from to have our President here in Alaska for 4 nights and 3 days, to the tune of 1/2 million dollars. Have Governor Walker send a bill to the Obama Administration for reimbursement on what the state of Alaska paid out.

So leave the PERMANENT FUND ALONE. Remember when governor Murkowski tried to do that the people of Alaska spoke and did not re-elect him back as governor.

Have a great day and I hope people respond to the State of Alaska PFD and say No touching the PFD to bail out Alaska.
