Does anyone here think that electing the same old, same old is going to move Maine in the right direction?
Does anyone see their kids staying here after high school or college and getting good jobs and buying nice, affordable homes and raising their families in Hancock County?
The politicians in Augusta have had many years to make things right. “Paul LePage would have vetoed it” or “the Republicans would have blocked it” is no excuse for not introducing bills designed to make life more fair for every. single. person. in Maine.
Bernie Sanders is introducing bill after bill in the senate right now. Some Americans call these bills “leftwing”—the rest of the world calls them “basic.” He knows they won’t get past Trump or the Republicans, but he’s introducing them anyway because the man gives a damn.
You won’t hear the usual lame excuses from me when I’m in Augusta. The buck stops here.
