AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine’s first lady is saluting the nation’s military service members and their families as she wishes Mainers a happy Fourth of July.
Filling in for Gov. Paul LePage, Ann LePage says in the weekly radio address that military members put their lives on the line to protect Americans. LePage says it’s because of our troops that we are able to salute the flag on the 4th of July.
In the Democratic response, state Rep. Linda Sanborn of Gorham talks about Thursday’s U.S. Supreme Court decision to uphold the health overhaul law. Sanborn, a retired family physician, says the law ensures hard-working, middle class families will get the security they deserve and protection from the worst insurance company abuses.
Sanborn says the ruling is particularly important for Mainers.
