Notes
Special note provided:
Michael Moore "took advantage of what members of his own party and Governor Patrick called an egregious loophole, and filed for retirement benefits in his mid-forties. He then championed three phases of pension reform legislation, the final phase closed this loophole so that no one else could take advantage of it, however he is exempt and stands to collect over $1,000,000 of the taxpayer's money state tax free."

Flip Flopper

YES

(2) A+ Rating 2012 from GOAL.

(3) NO TO ENFORCE IMMIGRATION: MARCH 2014 vote on 'catch-and-release for Illegal aliens' (the Trust Act, in Committee).


(4) TAXES: 100% rating from CLT in 2010, but downgraded since then...under review.

(5) State Senator Richard Ross was one of the deciding votes to kill the marriage amendment back in 2007 when he was a State Rep.  This is especially disappointing because he promised people he would vote the right way on the amendment.  Ross also marched in the 2010 Gay Pride Parade with the Baker/Tisei campaign and endorsed ubra-liberal Kirsten Hughes as party chairwoman in 2013.  

(6) NARAL doesn't like him.
