I have worked as a personal care assistant, and I have seen so many people who rely on Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security. Without it, their lives are on the line.

Rep. Bruce Poliquin has repeatedly voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act and cut medical benefits for the elderly and Mainers with disabilities. He is getting ready to vote for tax cuts for the rich while cutting programs such as Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security. Those programs are needed all across the country. Mainers need them.

Poliquin should vote to protect the Mainers he represents.
