Sarah Palin's speech tonight said, "I found a few things in the governor's office that I didn't think that the tax payers should have to pay for...I've protected the tax payers..."

But here's the thing. There are no tax payers in Alaska. Alaska has no state sales tax and no state income tax. 87% of the non-earmarked revenue in the Alaskan budget comes from taxes on oil companies. Another $2 Billion comes from federal earmarks and subsidies.
For a governor of Alaska to brag about balancing the state budget and "protecting" tax payers is obscene! All they have to do is collect money from big oil and sign checks to the citizens of Alaskans who wait for their free handouts from the state like hungry little birds.
