(2) Did not vote on H.4278, Voted For H.4376/4285

DISGRACED FOR HER ACTIONS AGAINST THE PELLETIER FAMILY....WE AWAIT THE FORMAL APOLOGY TO THE VINDICATED FAMILY....

Took to the floor of the House to OPPOSE any actions to discuss the release of Justina Pelletier from D.C.F. captivity. Further, she spoke about her blind devotion to the court system, etc. Truly, not a defender of the most innocent amongst us. Pelletier Family was VINDICATED at their child was kidnapped from them, held hostage by D.C.F., for 16 months. Check out stories at www.BostonBroadside.com or on our blog.

(2) Missing in action on the DeLeo gun grab debate. Did not vote on H4278 gun control. CONCERN NOTED.

(4) Voted for Brad Jones/Speaker DeLeo's $15 billion spending/bonding along with ever expanding State Budget increase with more earmarks than ...well, sickening. Refused to rise for a roll call vote regarding the supplemental budget to fund the government to start Fiscal year 2015.  It is bad enough to vote for the budget, the environmental bond bill & the stimulus, but not even willing to take a recorded vote on the budget is absolutely pitiful!

(4) Although Jones has a 93% MassFiscal Scorecard rating, not willing to take a recorded vote on the supplemental budget even though he is the House Minority “Leader” warrants an immediate reduction in rating back to RED NO. This guy has continued to support spending increases, borrowing of BILLIONS of dollars including pet projects, and refuses to even stand up and be counted to demand a roll-call vote in the legislature ((6.25.2014). Jeff Kuhner has called him a "poodle for Bob DeLeo" (DeLeo is known as the 'Gravy King' for spreading money around and projects around at taxpayer expense...

refused to rise for a roll call vote regarding the supplemental budget to fund the government to start Fiscal year 2015.  It is bad enough to vote for the budget, the environmental bond bill & the stimulus, but not even willing to take a recorded vote on the budget is absolutely pitiful!

DID WE GET A RATING WRONG?
Well, with incumbents, VOTES speak loud, but with "challengers",
picking through the mud can get murky at times.
Have your candidate fill out the questionnaire! Or contact us! E-
MAIL US!

Your candidate may be pro-life or pro-abortion. That is his/her option. This site is designed to reflect votes and positions so that YOU know what your candidate's CORE position is on various issues.  In the future, our database of each candidate's rating will contain links detailing the candidate's database of votes which earned each particular rating (except congressional, as their ratings are easily tracked at projectvotesmart).

Definitions used on this website:

         Pro- 2nd Amendment = supports individual's gun rights
Enforce Immigration Laws = oppose drivers license, free tuition and benefits for illegals
                             Pro-Family = pro-child: supports marriage between one man and one woman
                                                     as he/she would not deny a child the fundamental right
                                                     to have a mother, or a father; supports parent rights over state rights
                                                     especially with education in our schools
                                   Pro-Life = supports full term protection and birth of babies,
                                                      against support of tax dollars for abortion
