A brief note about the election: For Maine, it was a very good night. The Democrats now control all three branches of government. Finally, finally, 70,000 low-income folks soon will receive good, affordable health care and not have to resort to going to the emergency room when they are ill. Nationally, there are many states that switched from Republican to Democratic, and Democrats now control the House. Unfortunately, the tide did not turn in Florida, Georgia, and Texas, and the Republicans gained more seats in the Senate. So, Trump’s scare tactics worked to some degree, and we are still a very divided nation. However, real gains were made. Because of all the election brouhaha, I won’t be getting much work done, but I will allow myself to be happy on this day.
And onward, ho!

More good then bad – a good day for the country and a good day to be a Democrat! 🙂
Shannon, so true!
There is great hope that the nation will move forward from here. A huge collective sigh of relief!
Eliza, there sure is!
I am relieved to know that Medicaid expansion will finally be implemented in Maine!
Such a relief!
Onward ho indeed! A fabulous result for Maine and here’s hoping the tide will continue to turn for the highest good of all 🤗💖 xxx
Xenia, yes, yes! With all the problems we face, we need to be pulling together, not working apart.
Great that Maine did so well.
Susan, what a relief. And the rest of the country did pretty well, too.
I hope that the medicaid expansion works out well.
Tootlepedal, it’s looking oh so promising.
Affordable health care is so important, so it must be a great relief to you to know this will be happening in Maine. I just looked at a news update and there seem to be quite a few positives in this election….keep a smile on your face!.
It sure is. Holy cats!
It really was!
Yay! I was happy for Maine when I saw the outcome! I was happy for all of us, in fact, but was hoping for even more.
I know. But for various reasons, the Dems had an uphill battle and did very well, despite the climb.
