AUGUSTA — Maine Gov. Paul LePage used his weekly radio address to go after Democrats who criticized him this week.

LePage said today that Democrats who complained that he hasn’t done enough to help the state’s economy in his first 100 days should join him instead of fighting him.

He said his two-year budget would save $500 million, cut in half the state’s $4.3 billion unfunded liability and return $203 million to Maine families and small businesses through tax cuts.

He says he’s given the Legislature “the tool that will generate jobs – they just need to pass it.”

On Wednesday, dozens of Democrats rallied outside LePage’s office in the State House Hall of Flags. Democrats gave him “incomplete” grade for his first 100-days’ performance
