VIDEO: Bruce Poliquin on Hospital Debt


Republican leader and former State Treasurer Bruce Poliquin on Wednesday released a new two-minute video that succinctly explains Maine’s hospital debt predicament and why paying Maine’s bills is the right thing to do.

In the video, Poliquin explains how the state managed to accumulate $484 million in unpaid hospital bills and discusses Gov. Paul LePage’s proposed solution.

Poliquin, whose tenure as Treasurer ended when Democrats assumed control of the Legislature, has continued to be outspoken about the role conservative principles can play in improving Maine’s economy.
