Beatty, Kerry duke it out on WTKK in final Senate debate
U.S. Senator John Kerry and challenger Jeff Beatty squared off in their final debate on WTKK FM today. The hour-long debate sharply defined the differences between the candidates, including their positions on:
- abolishing the state income tax: Beatty’s for it, Kerry — surprise, surprise — is against it
- immigration: Beatty supports strong enforcement measures against illegal immigrants, including using asset forfeiture to pay for related prosecution, incarceration and repatriation costs; Kerry gave the same old “enforce the borders” answer;
- term limits: Beatty thinks the lock that longtime incumbents have on Congress — with some senators serving for 20, 30 and 40 years or more — is not what our Founding Fathers intended, and supports term limits. Now, here’s a shocker! Kerry, a 24-year squatter in the Senate, thinks limiting senators to two or even three six-year terms is a terrible idea!
Here’s hoping that on November 4, the sheeple of Massachusetts wake up and decide to limit John Kerry’s term themselves.
