Alaska Republicans (trying to) Kill Sarah Palin’s Only Legacy: Taxing Big Oil

Once upon a time, Sarah Palin actually had a job. She was elected governor of Alaska! And, for a few months at least, she often went to work and even made a brief effort to “help Alaskans” who weren’t named Palin.

The primary legacy of Sarah Palin’s only actual full-time job was the increased taxes on corporate oil profits — especially “windfall profits” when oil prices skyrocketed. But Republicans in Alaska’s legislature have now killed the Palin tax hikes on Big Oil, so Alaska can now expect an $8 billion decline in revenue for its people.

Even Quitter Sarah’s replacement, her one-time lieutenant governor Sean Parnell, now says her tax hike on oil companies was a terrible idea. Parnell used to say he supported the slightly higher taxes on oil companies that despoil Alaska while extracting its natural resources — now he’s all for giving the oil companies whatever they want.

WOW. Don't like Palin at all....BUT....the one good thing Palin did while in Alaska that I know of could be taken away.

What do Alaskans think of this? 6 billion of lost revenue, much of it in checks to Alaskan citizens.

I agree with Palin on this. "The People" own the resources of the land they live in. They deserve a share of the profits.

When a Republican 'redistributes wealth', ATS 'libertarians' are not concerned.

When A Democrat does it, it's socialistic nazi muslims from space!

if she has nothing to hide, why do you suppose she had her lawyers and co workers redact so much of the emails?
