Maine Gov To Able-Bodied Unemployed: "Get Off The Couch And Get Yourself A Job"
"Maineâ€™s welfare program is cannibalizing the rest of state government. To all you able-bodied people out there get off the couch and get yourself a job," Gov. Paul LePage (R-Maine) said at the state Republican convention this past weekend.
"I understand welfare because I lived it," he added. "I understand the difference between a want and a need. The Republican Party promised to bring welfare change. We must deliver on this promise."
