Are we really having this conversation! If the Maine Human Rights Commission is handling MORE of these kinds of case, work must be slow. When I first saw this story,I was amazed. How this ever made it to a court is beyond me.
This State and this Country has turned a corner where this type of obsurd story is even entertained. I certainly know which door to walk in when it's time use a facility!
Great job voters! Keep the cash in Maine instead of heading north or south of us. The tax payers should get a break on their property bills. Area Businesses will grow, and more jobs created. Let their be enough signatures to get this on the ballot.
I couldn't have been more happy to see Mr. Lepages picture this morning! Awesome! I really feel the voters are getting fed up with the same TAX AND SPEND government we have here in Maine.
Keep dumping the Tea into the Harbor. Send a message to those who do not know how to manage our economy. Congratulations Paul! Now let's put you in the Blaine House in November.
To apply, people have to attest to receiving help from either Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, Supplemental Security Income, food stamps, MaineCare, Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program or the Emergency Assistance Program. --SO ANYONE CAN FALSIFY THE APPLICATION AND THERE WILL BE NO ONE TO FOLLOW UP ON THE FRAUD.
If aid stops, the service is "supposed" to stop. Fuentes said customers can be subject to a random audit to prove their eligibility-- Read the key phrases, supposed to stop when the recipient stops receiving aid! Who's monitoring when aid stops? The recipient of the trac phone??
What's wrong with this program,EEVERYTHING.
“It provides someone with phone access with no cost that can be used for "emergencies, short conversations.”-- SHORT CONVERSATIONS??? EMERGENCIES???
Our FORCED tax when I receive my cell bill every month is something I didn't have any choice on voting for. The government can steal, "legally" from others, by just adding a TAX and it's all good.
' WHAT A COUNTRY", The characters include Nikolai, a Russian taxi driver (Yakov Smirnoff, whose catchphrase provided the show's title), HOW APPROPRIATE a saying for another program, program, program, program, program, program
Here we go again!!!! The State of Maine cannot manage their expenses and manage a budget, so let's start coming after on-line purchases now. The Sun Journal is supporting this! Are you kidding me? I knew it was a matter of time when the State would manage to find a well to legislate on-line purchases. Hey, you need some more ideas on where to tax? The State of Maine is already getting enough taxes from sales. I have many more for you.
STOP THESE POLITICIANS FROM ROBBING US....................................
What is wrong with you SJ??????
Fee's , sales taxes, estate taxes, excise taxes, permit fees, milfoil stickers (tax) restaurant food tax, diesel fuel-Fed and State, Court fines-sur charges, etc etc etc...........................................................................................................................
By the way SJ, take a look at your cell phone bill and see the mandated Bull#$%^ taxes added to that. Pretty soon the INDIVIDUAL will be working 6 months instead of four months to pay all the taxes the State and Federal Govt. steals from us.
"Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it." Ronald Reagan
If you need more revenue, hire more investigators to curtail welfare fraud, food stamp fraud, EBT (electronic Benefit Transfer) Card fraud, and many other Social Service programs that do NOT generate income.
