Maine Center for Economic Policy - Governor LePage makes his priorities crystal clear. His budget contains major tax cuts for Maine's wealthy and big corporations. He pays for the cuts by stripping resources from Maine students, Maine families, and Maine communities. Nowhere in this document is a plan to move our economy forward, strengthen our workforce, or invest in our rural economies.
He gives a $23,000 tax cut to the wealthiest one percent and fails to deliver for Maine's schools and communities. He does this just two months after Mainers came together to approve higher income taxes on the wealthy to fulfill a promise to students and local property taxpayers.
