Our Governor, Paul LePage, knows better than any Maine leader the problems associated with welfare. We need to set limits and move people from reliance to self-sufficiency. The Maine people are known for being compassionate and neighborly. However, the people of Maine have also had a tradition of self-reliance. To move Maine forward we need to focus on all of the people of Maine who have had to shoulder the tax burden for a system that is broken.
We fully support Governor LePage’s efforts to reform welfare. The Augusta special interests have had it their way – it is time for a new way. It is time to put Maine People Before Politics.
