Gov. Sarah Palin said the biggest “string” attached to the federal stimulus money is that “we are tying ourselves to the problem of the nation’s growing debt, $11 trillion of debt.”
“It’s a big fat string to wanna be tied to. What this is is basically a bailout for many of the states. Look what’s happening on a national level with private businesses, where government’s coming in to bail them out in order to get in there and have more control of those businesses,” she told reporters Friday in Juneau.
“Who’s to say that the same philosophy isn’t going to be used there in terms of bailing out a state and then getting in there and having more control over that state. That doesn’t sit well with Alaskans.”
