Or so says Sarah Palin.
The Associated Press reports:
Gov. Sarah Palin said Thursday that she would accept only 69 percent of the estimated $930 million dollars that could flow to the state, including $514 million for capital projects and $128 million for a hike in Medicaid reimbursement.
Well, what a principled lady! Say, what in particular did Governor Palin nix? Nothing important, really. Just money for non-essential programs, says the Anchorage Daily News, like…
… schools, energy assistance and social services.
Obviously, Sarah Palin knows how unnecessary these funds are, first hand. I mean, it’s not like higher educations levels are linked to a dramatic decrease in teen pregnancy rates, is it? Nah. In that vein, of course, I suggest the Palin/Plumber 2012 ticket use the following graphic heavily in their advertising. It should appeal to Real Mavriks everywhere.
