Maine residents pay much more for health insurance policies compared to other states. Lewiston Sen. Margaret Craven voted against LD 290 — a bill that would have allowed Maine citizens to purchase health insurance across state lines. That legislation would have saved Maine families thousands of dollars per year, while significantly improving access to care.
Maine’s next Legislature should represent the will of the people, not the misguided agenda of out-of-touch elected officials.
We, as a people, need to protect the rights of those least able to fight for them. To start, all adults deserve the right to be married and to defend this country.
Dr. Joel Kase is a respected public health leader and understands the vast health care issues facing this state.
On Nov. 2, Joel Kase will have my vote.
