F. Lewis: Trim the government


Cut this, cut that — that is all we hear from Augusta. Why don’t we hear about government officials cutting their outrageous salaries and laying off other officials who sit in Augusta doing little or nothing?

Why don’t we hear that funds for Medicare and other care programs will not be cut?

Maine has too many people in office. That just means money is going out the window.

People are poor enough and what happens? Gas and oil prices both go up. It is stupid. Who would allow that to happen? Whoever it is should be pulled out of office.

The worst part is that we put those people in office and they just lie, yet we keep putting them back in.
