NEW: Moore Fires Back at Simonian: Calls Him “Deeply Out of Touch”

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

 

State Senator Michael Moore

Democratic State Senator Michael Moore has shot back at Republican opponent Steve Simonian following the challenger's assertion that EBT cards should be more heavily regulated.

Sen. Moore agrees with Simonian that EBT cards should be regulated, and he says that is why he helped pass legislation to do just that.

“My opponent has consistently identified policy issues, including his own top priorities, that reflect a fundamental lack of research, understanding, and foresight," Sen. Moore said.

"I agree with my opponent in saying the citizens of the Second Worcester District deserve a Senator who is informed, active, and shares their values. However, it is quite clear that not only is my opponent deeply out of touch with my constituents, he hasn’t even taken the time to research and understand the policy items he has identified. Not only has virtually every single item on his priority list been addressed, but I’ve played a direct role in their passage."

Sen. Moore went on to say that he voted for a bipartisan measure to severely restrict the use of EBT cards just two months ago. He then attacked Simonian's position that EBT cards should be used only for food, saying that would hurt those that use it for public transportation or housing.

Sen. Moore also claimed that Simonian has done little to no research when hurling attacks, citing Simonian painting him as an anti-business legislator when he, in fact, voted for a reduction in the state income tax and a sales tax holiday to boost business.

"I'm happy that he supports these initatives and he should be supporting me," Moore said.

"His platform goes right along with what I've done and what I've been doing."
