In the news this morning, Governor LePage gave his 'State of the State' Address in Augusta last evening.  In the one-hour speech, LePage claimed that the Maine economy and the Maine way of life are under attack, referring specifically to the needy and to elderly Mainers. He was especially critical of the recent Citizens Initiative referendums passed in November related to the minimum wage and a 3% tax hike on the wealthiest Mainers.  House Speaker Sarah Gideon described the speech as negative and partisan.
