"Tea Party"
By Lou Ann Richardson


April 21, 2009


Ketchikan's "tea party" made one of the New York Times Op-Ed articles, (Gail Collins, 4/18)....along with Texas. We're famous yet again.

Wonder where Alaska ranks with other states that get more taxpayer monies from the federal government than they pay in? One of the highest from what I understand. ( Alaska gets $1.84 in return for every tax dollar it sends to Washington, aka, "the feds"). And who's taxes are supplying that additional $.84 that we Alaskans benefit from?????
