Lunch With Michaud

I had lunch with the MPA Bangor field canvass and Congressman Michaud today. We talked about Social Security, CAFTA and I asked him about his yea vote on the bankruptcy bill as well.

Michaud had some interesting insight into the tenacity that Republican leaders displayed in pushing CAFTA in the House and the tactics they used to secure their two-vote victory.

On Social Security, he predicts a hard fight as Bush pushes for privatization as a way to anchor his now lame-duck presidency.

So what was his excuse for screwing the consumers in Maine and voting yes on the MBNA bankruptcy bill?

He said he voted for it because it provided certain protections for fishermen and farmers they wouldn't otherwise have, as well as allowing workers to collect more benefits if their employer (such as a paper company) declared bankruptcy.

You probably already know my  opinion of the bill.
