Palin Rejects Stimulus Money

Another sign that Sarah Palin is ginning up for 2012: The Anchorage Daily News reports “Gov. Sarah Palin is refusing to accept more than 30 percent of the federal economic stimulus money being offered to Alaska, including dollars for schools, energy assistance and social services.” She said she will accept money for construction projects, but not funds for government. "We are not requesting funds intended to just grow government," Palin said. "In essence we say no to operating funds for more positions in government.” According to the ADN, “The biggest single chunk of money Palin is turning down is about $170 million for education, including money that would go for programs to help economically disadvantaged and special needs students.”
