LISBON – He took his message to a town hall in lisbon.
It’s town hall number 10 in Lisbon tonight. Though the people and the location were different, the governor’s message was the same. It’s time to eliminate the state income tax.
While you’re not gong to become Bill Gates you are going to make a good living the governor admitted Friday his tax plan is “dead” because of opposition in the legislature. But he’s still trying to drum up support at meetings like this.
“I’ve been in business 45 years before I became Governor. Hardest job job I’ve ever taken on in my life is to try and give back a billion dollars to the people.” Governor LePage. The Governor spent half the night explaining his plan to eliminate the state income tax. The other half taking questions from people in the audience.
“If we have businesses who are not currently in Maine would they be enticed to come to Maine? Many of the people we spoke with agree with the governor.” Karen Wilcox, LePage Supporter. “I support him that we should have less welfare in the state and take care of our citizens foremost. And i agree with everything he said.”
“I pretty much agree with everything he said.” Shawn Rockwell, LePage Supporter
“I go along with Governor LePage and I think he’s trying very hard and I agree with him on most everything.” Pat Janosco.
Governor LePage has said he will continue to fight for his tax reform plan, even vowing to veto the state budget if it does not include some sort of reduction to the state income tax.
