The epitome of ignorance, screwed up values and priorities, can be found in the State of Maine. Just the other day I reported that Maine would fail to implement a law passed in the Legislature because it wasn’t willing to come up with $100,000 to fund something that no longer exists. The law did away with the need for Maine citizens to spend time and pay useless taxes in order to carry a concealed weapon. The Legislature claimed they just couldn’t afford to fund the new law.
However, the same Legislature voted millions of dollars in welfare handouts to aliens.
“I was appalled to find out this morning that the Maine Senate voted to give at least $6 million worth of welfare benefits to non-citizens just days after they voted to leave hundreds of severely disabled Mainers on waitlists for Medicaid services,” said Maine Department of Health and Human Services Commissioner Mary Mayhew. “Mainers have spoken loud and clear that they believe public benefits should go to Maine citizens in need, not to non-qualified aliens, but a majority in the senate has decided to listen to welfare industry lobbyists instead of Maine citizens.”
Whether you agree with the new gun carrying law, Maine’s Legislature has their priorities screwed up in a big way. This should be rectified.
