Gov. Paul LePage uses a Christmas tree decorated with pictures of legislative leaders and a rubber pig for a prop on Wednesday to express his disgust at the $6.7 billion budget that passed both chambers of the Legislature on Tuesday and Wednesday. LePage is expected to line-item veto individual items within the budget and veto the entire bill. Photos by Kevin Miller
