Gov. LePage is gaslighting Maine

This week on the Beacon podcast, Taryn Ben and Mike discuss Gov. LePage’s tax remarks (and whether they’re a malicious lie or just betray a basic ignorance) and the Republicans’ politically self-defeating stand for new tax cuts for the wealthy.

Also: there’s a new federal health care repeal bill and Rep. Poliquin once again refuses to take a position, Taryn gives a legislative update from the halls of the State House and a special guest stops by for a solar-powered ray of hope.
