Maine Dems Ran the Clock Out on Themselves

Where have they been? What have they been doing?

While Maine Democrats are trying to blame Governor LePage and Republicans for the failure to pass a state budget, a review of the record shows that while Republicans were trying to work on a budget deal, Democrat leadership instead chose to hold a series of PR meetings to promote spending hundreds of millions of dollars Maine can’t afford.

As this timeline shows, Democrat leadership ran out the clock on themselves, focusing day after day on promoting unsustainable spending on a political roadshow, instead of pulling up a chair at the budget negotiating table. In the critical time from late April into early May, see how many times Maine Democrat Leadership was playing politics instead of negotiating a budget.

Names of members in Democrat Leadership positions are in bold.
