Preserving The American Political Philosophy: New Markets Tax Credit Program To Be Distributed to MRRA- High Paid Hotbed of Corporate Welfare !
Now that the Cate Street Scandal, costing Maine Taxpayers 76 million dollars is fading from the news cycle, the Maine legislature is already talking about increasing by 100% the limit for this transfer of wealth from tax payers pockets to corporate bank accounts and to distribute that wealth not to the low income high unemplyment areas but to unconstitutionally state governed municipalities located at former military zones which are hotbeds for Maine's corporate welfare system creating the highest paid workers in the state at a continually escalating rate !

Preserving The American Political Philosophy: Cate Street Capital- Legal Fraud Staus Checks Out -Here's How it Happened !
I am correcting my earlier assesment on this statute as I found the New Markets Tax Credit fully embedded in an amendment to teh bill that The House and Senate Voted on. That means, that although it seems compromising to put a statute into a budget with many other items, it is true that the House and Senate voted on it. The reason why the bill of the same name as the statute died is because the bill was inserted into the budget and so instead of going by the name of the statute, it goes by the name of the budget/
Preserving The American Political Philosophy: Cate Street Capital - A Legal Faud: By What Rule of Law?
The media tells us that the Cate Street debacle is a "legal fraud" on the Maine Taxpayers indebting them to the tune of 76 million dollars. The main stream story is that the statute on which the taxpayer debt is premised was enacted during a budget meeting and that when the House and Senate approved of the budget, they also enacted the statute. Research comes up with two separate bill status for LD 1043 (HP 778) - One that states that it was enacted and signed byThe Governor.The bill text includes a summary for the New Markets Tax Credit statute. The other bill status records the vote for the House and Senate. The text for that bill status makes no mention of the New Markets tax credit.

Preserving The American Political Philosophy: Statute Enacted By Maine's Budget Committee Basis for "Legal Fraud" Foisted on TaxPayers !
"Legal Fraud" reported by the Maine medai as rsulting in the Maine taxpayers owing shsyters $91 million dollars is premised in a statute enacted not by a vote by both legislative houses- but by the budget committing inserting a nearly identical statute into the Maine budget. As reported by an FOA response received from Maine legislative library- this statute resulting in a huge burden on Maine taxpayers was enacted by teh budget committee which now wants to double the limit for teh New Markets Refundable Tax Credit.
Preserving The American Political Philosophy: Rule Changes proposed by Lepage Threaten Private Property Rights in Maine
Maine Governor LePage is sponsoring an act to limit the authority of the State Attorney General over state agency rule making processes. The act also includes a new rule that says statutory law can over write the constitutional protection of private property rights, underscoring why we need an Attorney General with concern for our constitution to reign in politicians

Preserving The American Political Philosophy: Maine Media Reports LD991 New Markets Tax Credit Passed- FOA Response Says It Didn't !
In his otherwise well researched and informative article, Mr Whit Richardson continues to report that the ever more expensive scandal which costs are thrown on the backs of the Maine tax payers is a "legal fraud" - but I ask how legal can it be when the bill upon which the statute is based died in the Senate as is cofirmed by my own FOA request to the Maine Legislative Library. How can the Maine taxpayers owe these continually escalating sums to out of state shysters when our representatives never signed off on the deal ?- or if they did it is a very closely guarded secret to which even the Maine Legislative Library has no access !
