Governor Paul LePage says tough management has produced a $1 billion dollar cash pool.
Paul LePage also says he favors repealing former President Barack Obama's health care law and letting states craft their own solutions. The governor spoke on the Fox News program "Fox & Friends" Monday after President Donald Trump hosted the nation's governors the night before. LePage says he wants to get rid of "Obamacare" and replace it with block grants so states can design programs to meet their specific needs. He added he created a $1 billion dollar cash pool by running state government like a business. The cash pool is separate from the rainy day fund, which has a balance of more than $100 million dollars.
