The Steal of the Century
When Governor Baldacci signed LD 2015 into law on April 24 of this year he called it the deal of the century. Others in the Legislature and around the state saw it for what it really was - the steal of the century.

Spin Machine Breaks Down in Speaker's Office
On Wednesday Speaker of the House John Richardson held an impromptu news conference. Press accounts of the event have left me wondering exactly what the Democrats are thinking. While the Speaker may have appeared tan and well-rested, what took place in his office might suggest that he could use a little more R&R this summer. Iím guessing that heís been dodging bullets for so long trying to defend the economic mess the state is in that heís getting tired.

Intimidation and Democracy
It came to light this past week that a couple of my colleagues in the Legislature saw fit to approach business owners in their districts to make them aware of the risks involved in permitting people to gather petition signatures in their stores.

Rocking Horses, Cartoons and Flannel Shirts: Is This Any Way to Govern the State?
In the last couple of weeks, I have had more people ask me about Pat Colwell's silly cartoon ads than have asked about 5.7 billion dollars of state spending. I hope we are ready to move on now to more important things.

Bond & Debt
The Governor would like the state to issue $197 million in new bonds this year for a number of different projects across the state. While all of these projects may be worthwhile and all may be beneficial to our state, if we are to look at this responsibly and avoid financial crisis, this bond proposal needs careful scrutiny.

Tax Reform
The tax reform legislation pushed through the Legislature in early January should have been a start towards true tax reform. Regrettably, it doesnít appear to be anything remotely like what taxpayers are expecting as tax relief. In the final tally, it will add up to an elaborate bait-and-switch tactic to fool the casual observer.

Response to Governorís State of the State Address
There is an old saying that goes -- In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity -- and frankly that is how I have tried to approach my job in the Legislature. And given the difficulties we now face here in Maineóthe opportunities must be pretty darn plentiful.

Public Issues not Personal Attacks
I am sure that everyone knows the political season is upon us. In our country, those that do the governing can only do so with the permission of the governed.

Holding The Majority Party Responsible
The majority party and this Governor need to be held accountable for the ever-increasing tax burden being forced on Maine people.

Its All About Jobs
It seems to me our primary concern in this state should be welcoming and urging small businesses to come to Maine, creating more jobs while doing so.

Maine's Healthcare Insurance: Why So High?

Senator Paul Davis on Tax Reform
The Key to Tax reform in Maine is to put these runaway budgets on a budget, once and for all. Only then can we lower the tax burden on Maine people.

Baldacci's Thanksgiving Choice: Medicaid Card or College Diploma?

Governor Baldacci's Budget Fiasco
Governor Baldacci's most recent $113 million proposed budget fix is another example of this administration's fiscally unsound and shortsighted thinking. Here's why.

Casinos Make for Poor Economic Development
The campaign to have voters approve a casino in Maine is heating up. We are being bombarded with ads and the usual collection of lawn signs and bumper stickers.  I hope voters reject the proposal and would like to explain part of the reason for my personal opposition.

A Gas Tax Increase is a Poor Way to Raise Revenue for Maine
The automatic tax increase, which is based on the rate of inflation, is a poor way to raise revenue and a real burden on Mainers, particularly those of us in rural Maine who travel long commutes to and from work each day. The tax hike will also hurt our businesses, which will be charged more for transporting goods to stores. Logically, this added cost will be passed on to the consumers.
