Parnell Admits Failure on ACES

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 15, 2010

ANCHORAGE - Today acting Governor Sean Parnell admitted that ACES is a failure and must be changed. Acknowledging that the biggest tax increase in state history has failed and put our economy in jeopardy, Sean Parnell admitted, "We need a more competitive tax regime."

This shocking 180 degree turnaround came during a speech at the Resource Development Council in Anchorage.

Ethan Berkowitz responded, "This is a stunning admission of failure. Where was Sean? He showed zero leadership and now it is 2 weeks before an election. It's an election day conversion that shows he's getting increasingly desperate to save his sinking campaign. I don't buy it, and neither should Alaskans."
