Editorial: Tisei, Golnik for Congress in Massachusetts

(Continued)

That debt and regulatory burden will only increase with the implementation of the “Obamacare” health-care initiative. Tisei instead favors common-sense proposals that will lower health-care costs and reduce regulatory red tape.

Tisei also understands that changes must come to the Medicare program in order to preserve it for current and future generations.

For all this, Tierney and his surrogates have labeled Tisei a “tea party extremist” and excoriated him in a nasty series of ads and mailings. “Nasty” seems to be a Tierney speciality, as when he haughtily demanded he face no questions in his debates about his family’s gambling scandals.

Enough is enough. We urge voters to support Richard Tisei for Congress in the 6th District.

In the new 3rd District, we favor Republican Jon Golnik of Carlisle for his faith in the power of individuals over the control of the state.

Golnik faces an uphill battle to unseat incumbent Democrat Niki Tsongas of Lowell. But his campaign has the right ideas.

To jump-start the sputtering economy, Golnik proposes lowering the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent and imposing a one-year moratorium on new regulations. He wants to extend the Bush-era tax cuts and keep personal income taxes at their current levels. He wants to repeal Obamacare, replacing it with a series of less radical reforms.

Golnik understands that Washington’s spending spree cannot continue without leading our country to ruin. Voters of the 3rd District should send him and that message to Congress.
