Regarding the article “LePage plan would cut some from aid ‘lifeline’ ” (Dec. 24):

Is our governor so “bah-humbug” that he has forgotten how most of his/our ancestors found our way to this country/state? He would have trouble finding a more voiceless, fragile and vulnerable population in our state to pick on than those who are seeking asylum and a bed in the Inn.

He should visit Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty to be reminded that, given different circumstances, we could all be the tired and poor in need of a safe place.

Hey, Gov. Scrooge: “God bless us, every one!”
