Excessive government spending has resulted in nearly $12 billion in debt for which Maine families are on the hook. Mainers work hard to raise their families. They cannot afford to pay even more to government in taxes. Augusta's tax-and-spend culture must end. I support a full audit of every government program, especially the Department of Health and Human Services, which consumes about 30% of the state's general fund spending. Let's figure out what works in government, and what doesn't, so we can reduce spending, cut taxes and bring new jobs to Maine.
