Make the Tax Code Fair and Protect MaineCare

To be delivered to The Maine State House, The Maine State Senate, and Governor Paul LePage

Petition Statement

Seventy-three percent of Americans want the wealthiest 1% to pay their fair share of taxes. I am one of them. Please restore fairness to the Maine tax code rather than throwing 65,000 low-income and disabled people off MaineCare and putting 4,400 healthcare workers out of work. We can balance our state budget if Maine’s wealthiest 1% pay the same state and local tax rate as the rest of us.
There are currently 2,801 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

It makes no sense to dole out massive new tax cuts to the wealthy while stripping low-income and disabled Mainers of needed healthcare services and consequently putting 4,400 healthcare providers out of work. At no time since the Great Depression have America’s wealthy elite enjoyed a lower tax rate then they do right now. Tell your legislators and Governor LePage you want the wealthiest 1% to pay their fair share.
