    •  Alaska divident is different (0+ / 0-)

      AFAIK it's not an extra tax put on top to fund it.

      But more importantly it was put in during a time when politics was more sane.  If Democrats tried to put it in today they would probably be crucified by conservatives.  If Republicans tried to put it in...well, they wouldn't.  They'd likely hand the money back to private industry.
