I mentioned the insane budget cut proposal.

Check out this website:

And if you have the opportunity, please show up in Augusta on Wednesday. I'll be there, and hope to see some of you as well. This is just critically important, and we need to speak up.

(from the Maine Can Do Better website)


Serious additional cuts to MaineCare and other services in Governor's New Budget Proposal.

Please join us at the State House at 10am on Wednesday, March 12th to oppose deep budget cuts and ask Maine lawmakers to find a better way for Maine!

Join us to fight these cuts! Join hundreds of others to help legislators understand the harmful impact of these cuts.

Come to the State House in Augusta at 10:00 am on Wednesday, March 12th. Please check in at the Welcome Center on the first floor of the State House at 10:00 am. We will give you information which you can provide to your legislator, asking them to reject these harmful cuts.

At 11:30 we will gather in the Hall of Flags for a rally highlighting the cuts and calling for the Legislature to find a better way to balance the State budget. Please bring signs opposing the cuts if you can (do not put them on stakes). We will also have some signs available. For those who can stay for the afternoon, we ask you to join us in the Appropriations Committee hearing room to show our opposition to the cuts.

Please join us--our goal is to have hundreds of Maine people come to the State House on March 12th to show our opposition to these cuts!

Out of curiosity, what do you think should be cut instead (since raising taxes further doesn't seem to be an option)?
