Gov. Paul LePage says Maine will privatize ASPIRE program

Gov. Paul LePage said Tuesday during his weekly town meeting tour that he is moving forward with the privatization of the state’s ASPIRE program because Maine is failing to meet federal work requirements for the program’s participants.

The only reason the ASPIRE program is a joke is because it's severely underfunded.

Somebody goes and applies for Snap or AFDC, and is told they have to go to the ASPIRE Orientation in order to qualify.  No Problem.  So they sit there for 2 hours listening to how wonderful the program is.  No Problem.  Only to find out that the program ran out of their yearly funds a month after they got them.

Therefore it is a total waste of time.
