Dear @SenatorCollins, You keep saying you’re hearing “nothing” from constituents about #Kavanaugh. I invite you to come back home and actually spend some time in #Maine- and see the incredible community fighting his nomination. 1/9
For someone who repeatedly promised Maine women you would protect our rights - and earning the @PPact endorsement - how do you explain the 76% of women who OPPOSE his nomination? 2/9
And why are you letting the White House papers - of his “most formative years” (his words, not mine) not be released? Where’s the anger? 3/9
Too many really lovely people hoping for their partner, child, parent, etc to be the person they could be if that partner, child, parent, etc if they only changed, which of course they have no desire and/or resources to do.
Maybe you think of yourself as an independent, moderate, etc, and really don't love either party (but probably like one party less) - you can select me as your first choice, and still have the back up of another candidate if not enough people agree with you. #mepolitics
In this race, folks who like Bruce probably don't like Jared, folks who prefer Jared probably aren't keen on Bruce.
A lot of folks would like (or find less annoying) someone who really isn't a party. With RCV, you can do that! It removes the risk of vote-splitting.
Something's happening in Maine, folks. Mainers are about to vote overwhelmingly for universal home care for people with disabilities and the elderly, funded by a tax on the rich. #mepolitics suffolk.edu/documents/SUPR…
The current single payer bills do NOT include this critical benefit, but provide 100% free acute health benefits all the way up the income scale.
Including this benefit is one reason single payer might increase national health spending. Another reason is paying most hospitals below cost is probably untenable. But a marginal bump in health spending is worth it!
The way my head works may never be gratifying or specific in the ways @ASFried is looking for. I think it may one day work for @CollinsWatch, though I would imagine I would have much less exciting material than Susan.
We're starting to get blue's clues here, but on quick glance I don't see much here other than the word "lobster" on two pages in this document; lobster defined and page 103 which doesn't say much about what Bruce said.
