    Threats and bullying again.  Let’s just spend a ton of money on legal fees instead of feeding hungry children or helping families who have paid into the system for years.

      No threats, No bullying. The governor is looking out for our pocketbooks. If you read the article you will see that there are 7 Democratic Governors pondering the same problem.

    Thankfully, someone willing to stand up to WashingtonDC’s arrogance.

  • Just think!

        If the Republicans had allowed the Democrats to create a single payer Universal Health Care system and ran it like a buisness such as the Insurance Industry and the government paid the the defecit down with the profits we would be in pretty good shape both fiscally and health wise as a nation! What differance does it make if you pay the Insurance Company Premiums or the Government Taxes?

    It all comes out in the wash!

    And the Republicans say that they are the only ones that know how to run a government like a buisness!

    I say geter done, put your money where your mouth is, if you really want to help this country do it ,run a Universal Health Plan and stop trying to be actors for the Insurance Companies!

    You really “Stink” at that!

      Yup, did that once and created Freddie and Fannie to expand home buying to millions who couldn’t afford the payments…and look what that did to the economy.   Remember despite expanding Medicaid in Maine, Hospitals have tripled their unpaid debt…..more insurance coverage neither brings better health, nor reduces the costs and even more hospitals will be on the edge of bankruptcy…need facts?  Check the Kaiser Family foundation.
