Would you support expanding the state’s Medicaid program, MaineCare? Why or why not?

Definitely, yes. This would provide medical coverage for 70,000 uninsured Maine residents, would provide hundreds of additional job opportunities in Maine and would improve Maine’s economy statewide; 100 percent of the cost would be borne by the federal government and reducing to 90 percent by the Feds in future years.
