Governor's Statement on Democrats Using Same Old Tactics


Location: Augusta, ME

Governor Paul R. LePage released the following statement Thursday morning after learning about Democratic leadership's announcement to hold a news conference on tying welfare expansion to the hospital bill:

"It is disappointing the Democratic leadership is scheduling press conferences instead of scheduling a vote today on my plan to pay Maine's hospitals.

"We need to pay the old debt so Maine can afford to sell the other bonds to create jobs and grow Maine's economy."
