Federal funding (On the record)

In her State of the State address on January 17, 2008, Palin declared that the people of Alaska “can and must continue to develop our economy, because we cannot and must not rely so heavily on federal government [funding].”[104] Alaska's federal congressional representatives cut back on pork-barrel project requests during Palin’s time as governor; despite this, in 2008 Alaska was still the largest per-capita recipient of federal earmarks, requesting nearly $750 million in special federal spending over a period of two years.[105]

Budget, spending, and federal funds;

In June 2007, Palin signed a record $6.6 billion operating budget into law.

Palin is not the pure saint you so worship. She is the same as most all other Politicians.

One of her three budgets had an increase, but the others were decreases—as was her last compared to her first.

No other modern pol matches that record.
