Larry Bliss couldn't find work in his home state of Maine so, like many unemployed, he broadened his search and located a job elsewhere in the country. Unlike most unemployed, however, Bliss had "state legislator" listed on his resume as his current title during his entire 16-month job hunt.Our fine Democrat ex-legislator adds this snippit of sudden self awareness:
"The irony is both sides of the aisle are all talking about the need to move forward with economic development to create jobs," he said. "It's frustrating to admit that we as a state have so failed our citizens that I have to leave to find a job. It's a sad comment on how the legislature works."ref: http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/03/weak-job-market-forces-maine-legislator-to-resign-for-job-out-west.php
40 years of Democrat dominance in Maine government has culminated in one of the worst job markets in the US and a business hostile state Bureaucracy. Oh the humanity!
