To save the citizens of Maine from costly taxes and regulation, Governor Paul LePage has refused to set up a new health insurance exchange mandated by Obamacare. Since he will face political pressure to change his mind, the governor will need all the support he can get.
Without the exchange, federal mandates won't work and the feds cannot
distribute the necessary insurance subsidies in exchange-less states. Obamacare
falls apart. Congress will then be forced to revisit the law.
The only hope of preventing the largest expansion of government in recent history is for Speaker of the House Robert Nutting and Senate President Pro Tempore Justin Alfond to join with Governor LePage and reject the establishment of the exchange.
Demand an answer from Speaker Nutting and Senate President Pro Tempore Alfond and ask where they stand on Obamacare. Ask if they will stand with the governor to stop the Obamacare exchange in Maine.
Time is running out. By December 14th, 2012, a decision has to be made. The election may be over but Obamacare can still be stopped.
Send the form below or feel free to contact the Speaker of the House or Senate President Pro Tempore by phone to voice your concern, or to thank Governor LePage for his bold stand:

Robert Nutting – 800-423-2900
Stick with Governor and Say No to the Obamacare Exchange!
Dear [Decision Maker],
Governor LePage is bravely refusing to establish the health insurance exchange to comply with Obamacare. I agree with his decision and ask you to voice your support for him as he faces political pressure to concede. If enough states opt out of the health care exchange that is the heart of ObamaCare, Congress will have no choice but to reexamine the unconstitutional law.As a public official, you should stand with the governor and the people of Maine. We don't need the federal government interfering with our health care decisions. Maine businesses that don't offer health insurance will be fined up to $3,000 per worker, and many will leave the state. To run the exchange, taxpayers will pay millions of dollars so insurance companies can rake in easy profits.Obamacare is the largest expansion of government in recent history and you have the power to stop it. If not for Maine residents, then for their children and grandchildren.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
