Alaska shows why budget-cutting conservatives are destined to fail

National conservative leaders are pushing for President Trump to take an ax to federal spending if he is reelected. This year’s ongoing Alaska budget crisis shows how politically unpopular that would be. Alaska
has been spending beyond its means for years. The state levies no
statewide personal income or sales tax and instead relies mainly on
revenue from oil production to finance its state government.
