Sarah Gagne-Holmes, head of Maine Equal Justice Partners, an advocacy group for the poor, said she had yet to evaluate Alexander's methodology but the cost projections are far above those produced by independent analysts.
"We know in the past the governor has used data to support his position," she said.

Many will likely be drawn to plans on the exchange that have the lowest monthly premiums, but those plans don't offer subsidies to help reduce the total out-of-pocket cost, said Sara Gagne-Holmes, executive director of Maine Equal Justice Partners. That means people who buy them will be on the hook for much higher costs when they seek care, she said.
Senate Republican Leader Michael Thibodeau of Waldo is quick to say that Republicans are by no means support the health care law with their efforts. In fact, he questions whether the subsidies will be sustainable long term. They merely hope to point out what options Mainers have that won't result in continued dependence on a state-run program, he said.
"This exists," he said.

Sara Gagne-Holmes, executive director of Maine Equal Justice Partners, said that this problem isn't new. She views LePage's announcement as politically motivated.
"The department has been working to come into compliance with past years for quite some time," she said. "It's interesting, the timing of the governor's release. He's once again trying to politicize the struggles of working families who need help to get by."
Gagne-Holmes said Maine isn't alone in its struggles to comply with TANF participation rates - meaning the number of recipients who are working at least 30 hours per week - particularly among two-parent families, 90 percent of whom are supposed to be working, according to federal law. She said that category currently includes about 1,250 Maine families, more than 700 of whom include one parent who is somehow disabled.
"He makes it seem like we're far from meeting that," she said. "All states struggle with meeting the two-parent participation rate."
Most TANF recipients are single mothers who fall into an "all family" category, where the required work participation rate is 50 percent, said Gagne-Holmes.
