The moment Janet Mills took office her reckless spending spree began. Her first state budget, prior to the Pandemic, increased spending by $800 million dollars over the last proposed budget of the LePage Administration. After the pandemic hit, the Mills’ Administration proceeded to pump hundreds of millions of one-time Federal dollars (printed and borrowed money) into the state coffers. This massive influx of federal dollars masked over the unmitigated spending spree embraced by the current occupant of the Blaine House.
Janet Mills’ out-of-control spending policies and dependence on federal money is a disaster for the State of Maine. This “one time” money from Washington D.C. will dry up, our economy will shrink, Maine taxpayers will be left holding the bag, and more tax and fee increases from Janet Mills will follow.
