In the article on the July 11 Kennebec Journal front page, “Pingree: Block LePage plan to cut 27,000 from Medicaid rolls,” the governor is quoted as saying Pingree is “putting her ideological views ahead of the Maine people.”

Aren’t those 27,000 people to be cut from Medicaid rolls part of the Maine people?

Perhaps the governor’s experience in cutting expenses at Marden’s Surplus and Salvage operations does not really translate to crafting a budget for governing all the people of our state of Maine.
