FILE - In this Dec. 5, 2012 file photo, Gov. Paul LePage speaks at the swearing in ceremony for new representatives at the State House in Augusta, Maine. As LePage addressed the newly elected Legislature in early December, his frustration with trackers, the video camera-toting operatives who follow politicians around, boiled over into a brief diatribe that set the session off to a sour start.

Received this e-mail today from Mike Michaud's (D. ME) gubernatorial campaign:
If expanding health care to 70,000 needy Mainers is important to you, then please keep reading.

Governor LePage is about to veto a critical bipartisan bill that will finally expand Medicaid to tens of thousands more people across Maine. But he's playing partisan politics with Mainer's health care and it's time we tell him that we're not going stand for it any longer.

Click here to add your name and demand Governor LePage sign Medicaid expansion into law once and for all.

For those struggling without health care, the stakes couldn't be higher. The choice between heating a home and buying medicine isn't political -- it's a matter of life and death.

According to recent polling, an overwhelming majority of Mainers support expanding Medicaid. But for far too long, Governor LePage has ignored the facts and the will of the people of Maine.

Let's make sure he can't ignore us again.

Add your name now -- Tell Governor LePage to expand Medicaid to Maine's most vulnerable citizens.

Thanks for everything you're doing to help the people of Maine.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
