Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

The Governor of our State is trying to give 2 BILLION dollars a year away to oil corporations.

That's right. you read that right, TWO BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR TO OIL CORPORATIONS!

Not only that, he won't even have a debate about it to justify his position.

Yes, he is an R. Wait for it... HE WAS AN OIL LOBBYIST before he became Governor.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Gov. Sean Parnell has thus far declined state Sen. Bill Wielechowski's challenge to a debate over oil taxes in Alaska. He should reconsider for three good reasons.

First, oil taxes remain the most important issue before the Legislature and the people of Alaska. Whatever lawmakers vote to do and the governor signs into law will have a long reach into Alaska's future and may even define Alaska's future. While the governor remains adamant about the need to overhaul ACES and cut the companies' tax bill, he has rethought and revised his proposals. He should be willing and able to make his case against hard questions.

2. Not only is he wanting to give them 2 billion dollars of public resources

 

but he isn't demanding anything for it.

We already have incentives to help spur development but this doesn't do ANYTHING.
