“D” stands for Democrat. Could it also mean “dishonesty?” Obamacare promises come to mind. When will people wake up and say, “Enough!”?
Our federal government is headed by a “D” president who takes frequent, expensive vacations. Where is he when tough issues arise? His Senate president, Harry Reid, helps by blocking any meaningful corrective legislation coming from the Republican House. Unbiased reporting of these matters is hard to find in the liberal media.
How should we judge the Sun Journal? Numerous articles and editorials seem bent on making Maine Gov. Paul LePage and his administration look bad; they do not always present a balanced report of both sides of the story. The SJ rarely publishes the voting record of our elected legislators and congressmen. The readers would like to know who is voting for liberal issues that defy common sense.
Maine’s current U.S. representatives march in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi and have done so their entire careers. So, if a citizen wants to know how Rep. Michael Michaud would act if elected governor, look at his voting record in Congress. It follows the party line dictated by others. His actions speak volumes.
The Maine Legislature majority Democrats continue to throw their weight around and are proposing new taxes and spending. Maine’s sparse population and low average income limit Maine from funding what wealthier states can fund comfortably.
When will the Democrats realize this?
Our constitutional balanced budget requirement is their reality check.
