Click on the links below to listen to Treasurer Poliquin explain how Washington politicians created the conditions for high unemployment and collapsing stock values.  He shares the country's frustration with massive government spending, out-of-control debt, and continuing recession.
  
Treasurer Poliquin compares Washington's inability to fix its serious problems with Maine state government's new direction of spending less, taxing less, regulating less, and borrowing less. "These new fiscally prudent policies are building a business-friendly climate to attract business investment and jobs in Maine."
  
Treasurer Poliquin was interviewed on Tuesday morning on the popular George Hale and Ric Tyler Show, WVOM 101.3 Augusta & 103.9 Bangor.   
 

(Mr. Poliquin's comments are as State Treasurer, not as a Trustee of the Maine Public Employees Retirement System.)
