The Weekly Top 3 (6.20.2022)

The reactions to our joint op-ed in the ADN & elsewhere, the myths some push to rationalize using PFDcuts to fund govt & we start looking at some upcoming campaign issues

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 June 20, 2022.

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) Michael and I discuss the op-ed we wrote on fiscal policy and some of the reactions to it (1:57); 2) we discuss some of the common myths used to justify and rationalize continued PFD cuts (16:33); and 3) we start identifying some of the issues we think will be prominent in this coming campaign cycle, and how we are starting to think about them (25:57).

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.
