Maine is the first state to override the Republican governor and legislature to expand Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act by direct vote.  And it was by a large margin close to 60% to 40% and even in the Northern, more Republican part of the state.  And we also voted down the abysmal casino proposal in York County.   As if we need another of those frauds.  

I know a lot of people who might benefit, whose lives might be saved by this vote.  It's not single-payer, yet, but it's a huge repudiation of the stinking Paul LePage and the Republicans in the legislature who kept poor Mainers from getting insurance, no doubt killing some of them.  I hope they wasted a lot of money hiring the old white bucks slime ball to make that robo-call I mentioned yesterday.  What a skunk.  

Update:  I apologize to skunks, they are innocent and only use their stink as a defense, Pat Boone is a total asshole and it's by purely human greed and intention.

  1. Just saw the news. Congratulations are in order. Apparently much of the voting nationwide repudiated Trump. Now who will the pundits interview?
