The Weekly Top 3 (3.20.2023)
The critical facts about the PFD the #AKmedia leaves out, the disconnect this session in how the #akleg is approaching the #AKfiscal situation & legislative hypocrisy on steroids
Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind here at Alaskans for Sustainable Budgets — for the week of March 20, 2023.
The Weekly Top 3 is a regular weekly segment on The Michael Dukes Show. The Show broadcasts on Facebook and YouTubeLive as well as via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6–8am. I join Michael weekly in the first hour of Tuesday’s show, from 6:25–7am, for a discussion between the two of us about our three issues.
This week our top 3 issues are these: 1) the critical facts that the Alaska media continually leave out of stories on the PFD (2:01), 2) the growing disconnect in how the legislature is approaching Alaska’s fiscal situation this session (15:28), and 3) legislative hypocrisy on steroids: “we” need big raises but middle & lower income #AKfams should accept big PFD cuts (29:17).
The segment is at the YouTube clip above. For those that prefer the audio version, it is available both on our Spotify and Soundcloud pages. For this and other complete podcasts of The Michael Dukes Show, go to the Show’s Soundcloud page here.
