NEW: Ken Block Criticizes Raimondo’s Agenda

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

 

When RI State Treasurer Gina Raimondo officially announced her candidacy for Governor on Monday, she unveiled her job creation and economic development plan, described as a bold, innovative approach.

On Thursday, Republican candidate Ken Block issued a statement criticizing her plan. 

Ken Block's Statement: 

"Treasurer Raimondo's announcement of her Progressive agenda, which was immediately endorsed in full by Mayor Taveras, calls for a continuation, even an expansion of unsustainable tax-and-spend liberalism. It's full of old, expensive ideas and some new, expensive ideas, but no ideas that will help grow the jobs we need."

"With the two leading Democratic candidates lining up behind a plan so full of new spending programs that it could bankrupt the state, the race for Governor has come into clear focus: more taxes and more spending by Democrats, or my comprehensive plan to make Rhode Island attractive to new business by saving a billion dollars in wasteful spending and reforming the way government operates."

I was really surprised by Raimondo's announcement speech.

She seems to have announced a transformation from fiscally responsible steward of the taxpayers' money who spearheaded pension reform (which was truly bold) to liberal progressive eager to hand out drivers' licenses to gate-crashing people from other countries.

And totally IGNORE the Second Amendment. Now, Obozocare is "settled law" according to the socialists, but the SECOOND AMENDMENT... well, now, WE don't like it so "what does it matter, anyway".
Gina baby better work on her public speaking, she comes across as though she doesn't believe about half of what her consultants are "making" her say. All things for all people, and WHO pays for it?
She may buy off certain union bosses, but the rank and file know what's up.

Gina is fooling herself as well. She doesn't believe this. She's too smart but pandering for votes got the best of her. Too bad because I liked her.
If this is how far left she feels she has to go to win in this state, just shows how incompetent the voters are.
