The Weekly Top 3 (10.29.2018)

Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind this week — for the week of October 29, 2018.

The Weekly Top 3 is a regular segment on The Michael Dukes Show. I join Michael on the Show each Tuesday from, now 6:20-7am for a discussion between the two of us about the three issues. The Show broadcasts on FacebookLive and via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6-8am.

This week our Top 3 are these: (1) our view of the MOST important piece of preserving the #PFD and where the two remaining candidates for Governor stand on the issue (at 3:00), (2) why, contrary to what some claim, new oil developments on the North Slope aren’t a solution to Alaska’s fiscal situation (22:45), and (3) once again we explain why #akleg races are soooo damned important to the #PFD & budget (31:06).

The Weekly Top 3 is a regular segment on The Michael Dukes Show. I join Michael on the Show each Tuesday from, now 6:20-7am for a discussion between the two of us about the three issues. The Show broadcasts on FacebookLive and via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6-8am.

This week we start with a discussion about a new “Information Paper” on the PFD from the Legislature’s Legislative Finance Division (at 1:55), and then turn to our Top 3 issues: (1) our growing concern with Mike Dunleavy’s budget numbers (at 8:20), (2) why that concern makes the Senate District O race between incumbent Peter Micciche and Challenger Ron Gillham even more important (at 23:00), and (3) how Jared Kushner’s use of tax loopholes matters to the national fiscal policy debate (31:28).

The Weekly Top 3 is a regular segment on The Michael Dukes Show. I join Michael on the Show each Tuesday from, now 6:20-7am for a discussion between the two of us about the three issues. The Show broadcasts on FacebookLive and via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6-8am.

This week our Top 3 issues are these: (1) our view of “the elephant in the room”: the single most important fiscal issue this year that none of the candidates are talking about (at 3:20); (2) Gov. Walker’s former DOR Comm’r calls out opponents for lack of truth, but then avoids the hard truths about Walker’s position (12:20); and (3) in our view, the single most important legislative race this cycle (23:50).
