One Response to “Fed to Maine Gov. LePage: Return Labor Mural or Pay Us Back $60K”
The call by eight republicans in the state legislature for LePage to tone down his language is not setting well with the tea partiers in Maine. What they don’t realize is that where extremism exists, it’s almost impossible to govern when you have two or more political parties with members in the same legislative body. This is what is happening in the House of Representatives at the present time and is causing problems in reaching a compromise on the budget.
I’m happy to hear that the federal government is asking for the return of the $60,000 in grant money. The tea partiers seem to be glad that LePage is as obstinate as he is, but I’m wondering how they’ll feel supporting him while he spends the state’s money to defend the pending lawsuits, especially since one of their most beloved gripes is “wasteful” government spending.
