Democrats have been in power here for over 40 years and it shows. Not one bond issue has ever failed, yet the state cannot figure out why there are such short falls. It is pretty easy for me, I read the fine print on the cost of the bonds we as Mainer's so flippantly pass and it is no wonder. I guess people have never heard of compound interest and what it costs a borrower in the end; if they did they would not pass these silly bond packages that create 800...yes a whole whopping 800 jobs for the multi-millions of dollars it costs us of in bonds.
As one guy told me at the beginning of the recession; it is no big deal, Maine is always in a recession. I guess that is true, but the key is, I know why?
Great post! I have voted for both Collins, Snow and my local representative who is Republican...but! I don't vote for any of the bond issues as I believe the way you do....WE CAN"T AFFORD THEM!
