When it comes to pork....Alaska has always been king
RIP Ted Stevens
somehow i think this is going to change now.
Politicians actually backing up what they say and not just saying one thing with their mouths and another with their hands?
So, then it's safe to say that these jobs are mostly federal gubmint jobs...Which would only follow that a lot of federal money goes into Alaska.
BTW, did they happen to mention the eight military installations and the fact that the feds own nearly 70% of the lands in the state?
State-by-State Listing of Major U.S. Military Bases - Alaska
You think that financial support of those bases and the expenses for the bureaucrats administrating that kind of land mass comes cheap?
But hey...The feds could always get the hell out and let those ingrate Alaskans run their own state, couldn't they?
Well, er, um, well, if you keep bringing facts you'll end all debate
Nothing like forcing government programs on States and people and then bitch and complain when the low hanging fruit is grabbed. I wonder how much of that money is in things like military bases, Medicade,Medicare and mandates imposed on States to begin with?
lol....that shut the earlier posters up
