Once again, the LePage administration is blaming the great people of Maine who may be poor and temporarily downtrodden and deserving (hear me here) who need help and a bit of food. Meanwhile, Gov. Paul LePage and his cronies are up to tricks and shell games with multimillion contracts to out-of-state providers for transportation, services and “research” (wink, wink) supposedly about MaineCare but just a campaign gimmick.

Just think what those multimillions in outside contracts and services could have done if they had remained here to bolster our Maine economy. LePage is always trying to say he believes in Maine people. He doesn’t. He doesn’t want to feed and shelter Maine people. He doesn’t trust the Maine people to provide contracts and services for Maine people. He mocks Maine and the great resource of its people.
