In their battle to defeat the equally dreaded Barack Hussein Obama and his plot to "redistribute the sacred lifeblood of the wealthy" by taking our tax plans all the way back to the way Bill Clinton made them in the long lost 90's when the U.S. only Generated 22 Million jobs, somebody forgot to mention Sarah Palin has done almost the exact same thing in Alaska.
This is a story that's been out there for quite some time, in fact it's surprising that it took this long for someone to notice (besides Keith, Thinkprogress wrote about it yesterday and I almost wrote about it then) that when Sarah Palin famously took on the Oil Companies in Alaska with her full Mavericky fervor, few have bothered to mention that what she actually did was implement a Windfall Profits Tax on those companies.
Who else has proposed a Windfall Profits Tax on Oil Companies?
Senator Barack Commie-Socialist Obama.
..RALEIGH, North Carolina (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said on Monday he would impose a windfall profits tax on U.S. oil companies as he sought political gain from Americans' pain over high gasoline prices.
Launching a two-week focus on the economy after clinching the Democratic presidential nomination, Obama drew a sharp contrast between his economic policies and those of John McCain, his Republican rival in the November election.
"I'll make oil companies like Exxon pay a tax on their windfall profits, and we'll use the money to help families pay for their skyrocketing energy costs and other bills," the Illinois senator said. ..
Commie-scum talk like that obviously makes Super Sarah Pro-PRO-PRO-AMERICAN just plain mad as a wet but perky red hen in designer vanity glasses and a bulbous boufant.
Ok, well - I just wonder what a Social-Commie bastard like Barack Hussieny Osama bin Lyin would like to do with all that hard fought for Oil Profits money? Punishing the sucessful fruits of hard work and rewarding the lazy no doubt. Yeah. Just like this...
"And Alaska—we’re set up, unlike other states in the union, where it’s collectively Alaskans own the resources. So we share in the wealth when the development of these resources occurs. ... It’s to maximize benefits for Alaskans, not an individual company, not some multinational somewhere, but for Alaskans" stated Palin.
Alaska is sometimes described as America’s socialist state, because of its collective ownership of resources—an arrangement that allows permanent residents to collect a dividend on the state’s oil royalties.
Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share (ACES) program, which manages the redistribution of oil wealth in Alaska, provides for so much money that the state needs no income or sales tax.
This year, after spreading the wealth of the oil companies ACES will provide every Alaskan with a check for an estimated $3,200.
America should be afraid, very afraid of Sarah Palin: Commie Alaskan Socialist Slime.
