State Rep - 122nd, 123rd, 124th, 125th.
Peggy Rotundo shouldn't talk about wasting taxpayer money. As a radical left-wing
Democrat and long-term chair of Appropriations, she hold the record.
"The increase in state expense to administrate this expansion will be more than offset by the creation of health care jobs"
Now that is just plain silly.
"in the entire 45-plus history of Medicaid the government has never defaulted."
No, they just cut the reimbursement rates.
"The Maine Center for Economic Policy estimates"
Nuff said. The radical left using the radical left as a source. Sorry, Doc. but "your" letter doesn't pass the straight face test.
Thank you Rep Timberlake for using facts and rational thought to counter the emotion and hyperbole of the radical left. Maine has the second highest percentage of its citizens in the country on medical welfare. This proposed expansion, which we can in no way afford even if Obama WASN'T lying, would put us in the number one position again by far.
I would ask the left-wingers on this page to answer this - what programs and departments are you willing to cut to pay for this expansion? What roads are you ready to close? What schools? Unless you can answer those questions you can in no way propose to expand welfare in this state.
