Loughlin Makes it Official
“When we should have been focused on jobs, Congressman Patrick Kennedy was voting for a massive government takeover of our health care system that would have raised taxes, increased spending and cut Medicare for our seniors,” he said.
“When we should have been focused on jobs, my opponent was voting for a … trade energy tax that would impose huge new costs on businesses and families in this state. Instead of extending a helping hand, my opponent has teamed up with Nancy Pelosi and her friends in Washington to throw us one anchor after another, making matters worse, not better.”
Contending “it’s time for a new start,” Loughlin ticked off his own views, including: “The best social program is a good job that pays a decent wage…Money and resources are best used when they remain in the hands of the people.”
That the announcement is garnering some national attention is understandable given Loughlin is running against the only currently elected Kennedy in the wake of the Scott Brown victory. Meanwhile, Patrick Kennedy thinks the Brown victory is “way overblown” because Coakley was such a bad candidate….heh. Can history repeat?
