Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) claimed last week that nearly half of Mainers who are able to work do not do so. "About 47 percent of able-bodied people in the state of Maine don't work," LePage said at a conservative meeting, according to a recording posted by the Bangor Daily News. "About 47 percent. It's really bad."
