It’s academic now that President Barack Obama has signed the stimulus bill 
into law, but Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was one of the last politicos to get 
her licks in.

Palin, during an “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren,” interview voiced 
her opposition to the Obama stimulus bill because Congress hadn’t had time 
to fully digest it.

“I wish he would veto it and send it back until our lawmakers can read it 
and know what’s in it. I think I speak for a lot of Alaskans who say also 
understanding that the impacts on individual states that this stimulus 
package has, they are unknown impacts,” Palin said. “So until our guy and 
our gals in Congress can read it and understand what the impacts are, I 
don’t want to see it signed.”

The former Republican candidate for vice-president added, “I would call for 
a veto, absolutely, and let’s do this right, understanding that there is 
going to be some kind of stimulus package. There is going to be some kind 
of attempts for economic recovery. I say construction projects that put 
people to work, that fits the bill, but these big huge expanded social 
programs where we are adding people to the rolls, and then the economic 
stimulus package dollars from the feds are going to dry up at some point. 
States then are going to be beholden to these programs.

“We will have to pay for them. That’s not right, that’s not fair. We just 
want to make sure that whatever is it is that is passed makes sense for the 
states, for the residents of our individual states.”
