I am the mother of 2 and have 5 grand children. I write poetry and short stories.
why did they have to change a good thing when it was working just fine. I use western Maine transportation for rides to medical appointments and it had worked just fine for me. People count on them to pick you up on time and get you there on time.. What is the point of change if it is not going to work out? Put it back the way it was. Thank you
I agree with you 100%. I am disabled and cant work so I too am worried what is to become of us who are elderly. We did our share as workers of the State of Maine and we did support others on welfare and mainecare etc. Now that we need it , it is all going to be gone. It is true Maine wages are the lowest in the USA. I don't know how today's people make a living on this wage , when prices are going up and keep going up, but our pay does not go higher. Thanks for listening but I am upset with Gov, Lapage and he wont get my vote ever again.
I am so irritated with all these cuts that are going to hurt maine low income people, disabled, and seniors. The disabled and seniors have worked and earned these benifits and deserve them. It's really going some when the government can't take care of their own but can send money over seas to help them out. I was always told charity begins at home... hmmmmm make you wonder. The government have good pay checks so they don't know what it is like to live in poverty. The Governor stated he grew up poor and should understand what his parents went through. Shame on him for enforcing such cuts. Come on repersenative Snow, we need your help to stop these cuts. It does not make much since to me that they would make these cuts just to have people go to the emg room and to the hospital when sick. How will the government pay for this if one is uninsured. Disappointed in our Government
