Apparently, you misunderstood. Alaska gets nearly twice as much money from the federal government as they pay in federal taxes. They're the ones doing the take, take, taking....<quoted text>
The fact that they don't squander their money like they do in all democrat states probably isn't a factor either. They give what belongs to the citizens of that state, unlike democrat states that take, take, take until there is nothing left to take, which is where this country is at right now. Welcome to economic collapse and social chaos.
(hint, remember the "bridge to nowhere" that Palin was for before she was against?)
