Jeff Beatty, who is running for the Senate in Massachusetts, penned an op-ed in Human Events today. He makes a strong case that the Commonwealth’s people just can’t afford six more years of John Kerry (especially with Deval Patrick as the Governor):
Kerry’s shilling for Barack cannot mask what we here already know: The combination of Gov. Deval Patrick and Sen. John Kerry has been devastating for the citizens of Massachusetts. Under Kerry and Patrick, Massachusetts now has one of the nation’s highest property tax burdens, is among the highest in per capita debt, and is one of the few states in the country to be losing population. Now, Governor Patrick is flirting with raising income taxes to wipe away the sins of his Democratic buddies. In short, the Patrick/Kerry movie boils down to a series of broken promises and failed leadership.
Kerry promised people here that the Feds would pick up most of the tab for the Commonwealth’s mammoth infrastructure project called the Big Dig. Instead this project is almost $20 billion and rising over-budget, and mass tax payers are now footing almost the whole bill. Kerry is a staunch opponent of efforts to the repeal the death tax, fails the taxpayer by taking more PAC money than any almost other senator, and has failed to pass a single piece of his sponsored legislation in the past 9 years.
Even people who may be more socially liberal than Jeff Beatty can understand that Massachusetts’ tax burden is just too high. They need someone in office who can call attention to the serial abuses of the public trust that exist in Massachusetts, while standing up for the rights of all Americans.
If Sen. John Kerry has done anything during his time in the Senate, it’s prove that his only constituent is himself.
