Dear Donald Trump: Would you mind taking Governor LePage with you when you go?

As citizens, we need to accept part of the reason Congress can’t meet our needs is because we are expecting too darn much.
Mainers are concerned about neighbors losing jobs in the recent flurry of announced mill closures. LePage, on the other hand, wants to prevent people from getting help to feed their families.
It’s important to remember this program is about combating hunger, not making LePage feel better about what he thinks he sees.
