‘Planted’ letters unfair to Poliquin

To the editor:

Enough is enough. It’s no secret that I am a supporter of Bruce Poliquin.  But I have been known to vote for a Democrat here and there because I felt it was in the best interest of my community.  After all, that’s what it’s all about, right? Doing what’s right for Maine?

The mainstream media’s coverage of Bruce Poliquin and the planted letters to the editor by extreme liberals do not paint a fair picture of Congressman Poliquin’s vote regarding the CHIP program. The facts are that Bruce Poliquin voted for the longest extension of the CHIP Program in its entire history. Nonpartisan experts at the Congressional Budget Office have confirmed that no CHIP beneficiaries will be negatively affected because of the vote.

In the future, I would appreciate the mainstream media provide fair coverage and printed letters to the editor that are organic and not written by extremely partisan staffers.
