2016 PFD: Exactly How Much Taken from Alaskans?
By Andrée McLeod
September 12, 2016
Walker unilaterally devastated the small business community when he removed nearly 700 million dollars from the economy. The multiplier effect makes things even worse for Alaska’s economy.
While questions loom on whether it was legal for Walker to veto the full amount our legislators budgeted for our PFD’s, Alaskans have a right to know exactly how much of our dividends Walker took away from us.
We have every right to know exactly how much Walker has taxed every man, woman and child this year as he implements a failed fiscal plan that was hatched behind closed doors in secret meetings with a few select special interests, including GCI honcho Ron Duncan, AK Dispatch publisher Alice Rogoff, union boss Vince Beltrami, Rasmuson Foundation staff, Northrim Bank leaders, among a very selective few others.
When will Alaskans be officially told the exact amount this governor seized from their wallets and piggy banks?
