L. Bernier: It is only common sense


Gov. Paul LePage’s refusal to release for sale the state-backed bonds of $65.5 million has some House Democrats upset because the bonds were approved by voters in November.

The voters may have approved those bonds, but were they fully aware of how much the state owes in back payments to MaineCare alone? The figure is more than $500 million.

Maybe I don’t have all the facts regarding the issue, but in my house I do not add any additional expenses to my credit card until I am finished paying off what I owe.

It is only common sense.
