Lamb Will Uphold Constitution
Tonight, Marty Lamb, Republican candidate for Congress in Massachusetts Third District, was shocked at Congressman James McGovern's words and his attitude toward the U.S. Constitution.
During the debate Congressman McGovern stated, "the Constitution is wrong," when questioned about campaign finance. Congressman McGovern does not seem to believe in the First Amendment-the freedom of speech.
"I am deeply troubled by the Congressman's statement. I don't think that Jim McGovern is smarter than our forefathers. I support the first amendment. In fact, I support all the amendments," said Lamb. "The first action a Congressman takes is an oath is to uphold the Constitution. This oath should not be taken lightly."
Lamb also criticized Congressman McGovern's desire for campaign finance reform which includes public financing. "He wants to take your tax dollars during a recession to buy lawn signs for politicians. That's crazy" said Lamb. "This is coming from an incumbent who took over $300,000 from lawyers, lobbyists, and health and insurance pacs and officials. Hypocrisy at its finest."
Lamb also found Congressman McGovern's metamorphoses into the jobs candidate humorous.
"It is too bad his record does not back up the rhetoric. He says he is for tax cuts, but he has a rating of zero from Americans for Tax Reform. He says he is pro-jobs, but he has a record of voting 65% of the time against pro-economic policies according the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Maybe if Congressman McGovern had actually voted like his phony election year rhetoric, there would not have been 2 major lay-offs in Worcester today," said Lamb.
