All one has to look at is Augusta. More spending, more taxes, more socialist programs.
What really good business, especially industry, would want to operate here. Over taxed, over regulated and a state government with a sense of direction that compares to a Chinese firedrill (in which country they call it a Polish firedrill). Where to Hell is our governor anyway?
Christ, we have multi-million dollars unaccounted for in DHS (which is now a super agency), a food stamp investigation and now a federal investigation into misuse of migrant education federal dollars! Duh, does anyone see a problem here.
Any industry that looks at Maine will see we have a problem here. We are a socialist state. Why work? Get taxed to death and be so constricted by so many regulations that the opinion becomes Maines does not want you to give us good jobs.

Re: Maine Incomes Decline

Better make the correction: Maine PRIVATE SECTOR incomes decline! Public sector incomes and benefits DO NOT KNOW a downside.

The median household income in Maine ($37,619) is less than 70% of New Hampshire ($55,166), and the poverty rate in Maine (11.8) is almost double that of New Hampshire (6.0).All bought and paid for by our high taxes?[ 08-29-2004: Message edited by: Doug Thomas ]

And most public teachers have only a 180 day contract, with the rest of the time off. They get paid more than the average Maine worker and work a lot less. Is it time for a Tax Cap yet? Many are upset because of the predicted chaos it will cause but we have to start somewhere and rifght now it is the only game in town. "If governmemt won't, the people will!"
