Maine TaxPayers United Describes How and When The System to expand Federal Control of Maine Health Care Works !

This was posted on The Maine Taxpayers United FaceBook Page, which is becoming an excellent group doing very relevant work for this state: This is a description of how the system works which you are unlikely to find revealed in our Maine main stream media:
We will need to keep an eye on the Taxation Committee as they have been charged with helping to fill the “structural gaps” created by the budget passed this session. As stated in the last email, they are trying to find revenue by “closing some loopholes” put in place by previous legislatures. They also have floated “temporary tax increases” in several other areas including lodging and recreation services.
The pieces of legislation being considered have been introduced as “Draft Concept” bills. These submissions are offered to have a place for consideration and usually are crafted by the committee. So you won’t know what is going to be included unless you attend the “work sessions” in the committees. This is where the term offered by San Fran Nan, “we have to pass the bill, to find out what is in the bill”. This allows the department of jurisdiction to write the policies of enforcement. This is a dangerous way to do business because there is no legislative over-sight. The department head can change the rules and policy without any oversight!

The first pieces of legislation are:
Health and Human Services Committee – Cross Building, Room 209

This is the attempt for the Democrats to expand Medicaid and set up a Health Exchange in Maine. We must communicate with ALL Representatives and Senators to kill this legislation. I am confident the Governor will veto these bills, but we need to continue requesting that our Reps follow through on the will of “We the People”. Encouragement and positive requests that will give them the strength to follow their principles and convictions! “Shine the Light, Shine it Bright” Scott Maine Taxpayers United Political Director [207] 459-8213

Tweet This: Government As a Secret Society The response to my informal suggestion that public accessibility to government could be improved by making information available in a searchable data base ( see previous post) subjectively confirmed that the  functioning power elite of Maine's economic development programs and policies are both intentional in instituting a political ideology that supersedes the will of the people, as expressed in the Maine State Constitution, and deceptive towards the general public. 1.Information made available on an agency website but not in a searchable database format may not provide the research and investigative tool needed by the public. The Freedom of Access Act does not require that public information be posted online in any particular format, just that public records be made available. While there is a strong argument for increasing the accessibility and usefulness of information, there is no current requ

pascal-meier-unsplash Also published on Medium;s Data Driven Investor I woke up in the morning contemplating how the world had just suddenly changed over night, or at least the human perception of the world. My thoughts then jumped to a time I have only read about, when a similar event happened in the realm of science. The story goes that around the turn of the twentieth century, scientists believed that mankind had figured everything out that there was to know about how the workings of the physical world except what was considered to be a minor detail. Existing theory could not account for why the observed spectrum of black body radiation, diverged at higher frequencies from what was predicted. Plank solved the mystery by making a different assumption about the nature of the frequency of black body radiation. Others were assuming that radiation was continuous but Plank assumed that atoms could only vibrate at certain frequencies that were whole number multiples of a base fre

I am a Baby Boomer, and this is the story of how my generation let the great wealth divide happen.

Featuring The Maine Capital Corporation of 1976  Established in the wake of a newly centralized United States Economy,  Image for post Image by Mackenzie Andersen using public domain clip art Legal status disclosure: This is an opinion of a layperson. independent researcher ,and private citizen of Maine. My generation, aka the baby boomers, did not create the great wealth divide that advantages the few at the expense of the many, but we allowed it to take place. In order to understand a great effect, one needs to understand the molecular response occurring at the scale of individual human interaction.This story posits that the centralization of the American economy was a large contributing factor in the creation and escalation of the wealth gap and examines how it manifested on location to the benefit of the private capital interests of the few. The story takes a step back in time to the when the first act of legislation passed after the centrally managed economy of Maine was declared
