Maine is not exactly known for being a bastion of Conservatism, so why the 180 on welfare?
Maine appears to be getting it, and has decided that 13-year olds shouldn’t still be nursing…metaphorically speaking.
The state of Maine is seeing dramatic results by implementing safeguards and accountability into their welfare system. Not surprisingly, Democrats are crying for more of Mama’s milk!

Governor Paul LePage of Maine passed a measure last year that requires recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistant Program (SNAP) to complete a certain number of work, job training, or volunteer hours in order to be eligible for assistance. The new requirement has resulted in a dramatic decline in food stamp enrollment, resulting in a logical win-win for all of Maine.
This works for me!
At the end of 2014 the enrollment count for SNAP was approximately 12,000 individuals. Now that individuals have to complete either 20 hours of part-time work a week, volunteer for at least 24 hours per month, or get involved in a vocational program, the amount of SNAP recipients has dramatically dropped from 12,000 to approximately 2,500 by the end of March…Impressive, right?
