Maine's 2nd District (ME - 02)

Bruce Poliquin bends the rules and games the system to help himself and his wealthy special interest friends.
- Bruce Poliquin thinks rules do not apply to millionaires like him. He owns 10 acres of prime waterfront land on Sheepscot Bay worth nearly $2 million. But Poliquin was caught abusing the Tree Growth Tax Program to pay just $21 in taxes. Under investigation, Poliquin used another loophole to avoid paying his fair share and never paid back any of his taxes.
- Poliquin is opposed to raising the minimum wage. Instead he sides with the big business lobbyists who think families can afford to get by on less than $16,000 per year while millionaire executives like him get million dollar bonuses.
