Brendan Doherty on the Issues
Ian Donnis has posted a link, at Rhode Island Public Radio’s On Politics blog, to a private-channel YouTube video of a Brendan Doherty campaign appearance, plus a summary with a few quotes.
For folks who want to learn more about Doherty’s positions on the issues, the video starts off in the midst of a discussion on illegal immigration. At about 3:05, Doherty answers a question from a reflexive-lefty position on working with Congressional Republicans (which he answers by saying he’s a conservative and that he’ll always do what’s in the best interest of the people of Rhode Island and of America), and then answers questions on term-limits (he supports them) and right-to-work (he supports it, and notes in an answer to a subsequent question that some unions are “out of control”).
At 10:15, Doherty is asked about the Blunt Amendment, answering that he doesn’t support its particular language, but does support an exception in Federal healthcare law for Catholic organizations, and that there wouldn’t be a problem at all, if Obamacare were repealed, which is also something he supports.
Also, at about 13 minutes into the video, second-time Second District Congressional candidate Michael Gardiner makes a short presentation to the crowd, where he discusses mostly biography and political tactics.
