All statements involving Brendan Doherty
Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown shows someone can be bipartisan in Congress because he "votes about 66 percent with his own party."
"David Cicilline was the state representative who opposed tough mandatory sentences for those convicted of domestic violence and child abuse."
"Congressman Cicilline, when he was the mayor of Providence, espoused a sanctuary city."
Brendan Doherty wants "to repeal Obamacare, increasing drug prices for seniors."
"The Doherty Campaign, unlike the Cicilline Campaign, is funded mostly by individual donors -- not the big PACs that Cicilline relies on."
"The Providence Economic Development Partnership . . .which you [Cicilline] chaired, loaned $103,000 in taxpayer funds to one of your campaign workers. The worker never paid back the loan."
David Cicilline was "required to provide key information about city finances to an independent outside auditor. The deadlines were clear -- yet [he intentionally] missed them by months" until after the November 2010 election.
"(Brendan) Doherty wants to raise the eligibility age for Social Security benefits for anyone born after 1960, with no regard for the challenges it would cause for people working in physically demanding occupations."
"Over the past five years the federal government has paid out $601 million in retirement and disability benefits to deceased former federal employees."
"We have $60 billion in 2010 in Medicare fraud."
"[Mitt] Romney and [Brendan] Doherty certainly have a lot in common, like flip-flopping on abortion -- in Doherty's case, in a little over a week."
