> Senator Collins promised Sharon Dean, to her face, that she could protect healthcare and the individual insurance markets. Senator Collins broke her promise, and next year premiums will spike by as much as 50%.

> Bruce Poliquin and the Republican leadership in Washington are waging a war to humiliate the poor and take food off the tables of the needy. He believes that serving Mainers means stealing from our poorest neighbors to give away gifts to the wealthy. That's why we're working to defeat Bruce Poliquin this November.

> We protest because we believe that our leadership in Washington ought to reflect our values here in Maine. That means feeding the needy, welcoming immigrants, and protecting healthcare, not giving away massive tax cuts to those who already have so much.

> We're proud to support Ridgely, Sharon, and Jessica. We're proud of their protests, and we're proud of the actions of thousands of other Mainers who continue to resist the conservative agenda. <http://click.actionnetwork.org/mpss/c/BAE/ni0YAA/t.2he/mi7Pxo3gTDe0avc4AvJ6Hg/h4/WQ-2BlIwq7W2eCmkkcwbDiBSD9p4T6xn7Ql1kXw4yNstcw5C5Ap0dUK1tCCWbm1-2FMI6QC4DwUuiOQ-2F7QxFp7vPdfM2omAQcgJltOsz3-2BrpVjYYJ5mUpoesg1-2FPemcfWtEYqz0WhfycMFdPUsBTXljQ-2F7bEK7q-2FBfuehYTxcedg-2FSvKn2H19D5FCU974uXIwzRcDcn2vxI3ZqvCIFAslJCpRJ74Fee83DvG8Yc60ve6x6neWaum0HjwmSIwoGJCJs-2BVHTFail-2FjChGJd0vFkleR4ablQCI3KYEFRPl-2FRtegoRS9nNlvLaNk-2BZtmWkm4KdiRvuVowOa9kXW77s7NtZ2JvQ-3D-3D>
