What is the Maine Democratic Party’s agenda?

Two years ago we knew where we were headed.
Republicans had control of both the Maine House and Senate... our agenda was detailed, clear and open: health insurance reform, tax reform, welfare reform, regulatory reform, budgetary reform.... We... worked hard in the following two years to fulfill the detailed promises we had made.
Now the Democrats are back in charge, but there seems to be something very important missing: an agenda. ....
The obvious "true" agenda is SPEND MORE OPM and put the state's budget back in the gigantic hole left behind by Baldacci and King Angus. (They started trying right off the bat, with their failed attempt to secure more pay for their political cronies). However, they cannot admit their real agenda in public, so the least they could do is supply one that pretends to make sense.
Thank you, Jon McKane.
