This in reference to an article posted several days ago about Portland fighting with Gov. Paul LePage about welfare.

As a taxpayer, I have to thank the governor and anyone who recognizes that I work hard for those tax dollars.

Those who would hand this money out recklessly obviously have little respect for those workers paying onto the system.

At least LePage’s actions support some control over the spending of tax dollars with regards to welfare.
