Bruce Poliquin: The Weasel of Wall Street

Bruce Poliquin: The Weasel of Wall Street

New statements from Rep. Bruce Poliquin on health care repeal and discrimination against transgender service members are among the most weaselly in Maine political history.

This week on the Beacon Podcast, Ben, Mike and James Myall of the Maine Center for Economic Policy discuss Poliquin’s rodent-like qualities as well as the endgame for federal health care, Trump’s military ban, Medicaid expansion, the opioid crisis and British politics.

Plus: you may be surprised to learn the issue on which Paul LePage-protege Mary Mayhew disagrees with her former boss.
