(VISUAL) Governor LePage’s Budget Compromise Response

Posted on February 8, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

Per Lewiston Sun Journal’s Steve Mistler, the governor’s office distributed this response to the budget compromise. The image is of the letter that landed on the lawmakers’ desks this morning.

As Mistler points out, the Appropriations and Financial Affairs committee finalized the budget agreement at 1:30 am TODAY, February 8. It appears that this letter, dated February 7, was prepared in advance of any agreement by the committee, regardless of what the details indeed were.

As Governor LePage himself said to Mal Leary: “A majority budget doesn’t do it because it takes too much time and a two-thirds budget will not happen unless you sell your soul and I sold my soul to the devil long ago.”

Indeed.
