A Welfare System that Provides a Safety Net for the Truly Needy Not a Free for All

Maine previously led the nation in welfare reforms to not only protect the neediest but to ensure people found their way back to dignified personal economic freedom. The Mills’ Administration abolished those reforms and pursued a policy of further dependency on government. As your next Governor,   

  • Maine will implement work requirements for able-bodied, childless adults seeking welfare and ensure those who truly need it can receive assistance. 
  • Address the welfare cliff and institute a tiered benefit system to incentivize personal responsibility.
  • Remove Maine’s status as a “Sanctuary State”, ensuring that Maine’s limited welfare resources are reserved for Maine’s most vulnerable populations.
  • In addition, we must ban the purchasing of tobacco, alcohol, lottery tickets, bail and tattoos with TANF cash.

A Vision for Maine

My vision for Maine is to create prosperity through a lower overall tax burden for residents and businesses; a smaller, more efficient state government that we can all afford; protecting our most vulnerable populations (our children, our seniors and persons with disabilities), empowering parents’ rights to decide their children’s future, and managing a welfare system that serves as a safety net for the truly needy – not a free for all.
