Fitzpatrick Cleans Up In Final Debates

Fitzpatrick Cleans Up In Final Debates

Final debates provide clear choice for voters

BRISTOL, Pa.– Mike Fitzpatrick today aggressively made the case for new leadership in Congress for the Eighth Congressional District at a debate double header.  The debates focused on a range of issues with particular attention on reducing unemployment and jump starting the local economy.

During the debates Fitzpatrick continued to provide concrete plans and solutions for economic recovery including his opposition to increased taxes on small businesses and job creators, his plan to reduce healthcare costs, and balancing the federal budget.  Meanwhile, Murphy offered more empty platitudes and misrepresentations about Fitzpatrick’s record as well as his own.

By way of example, Murphy erroneously claimed that 8 million jobs were lost between 2001 and 2009 despite previous fact checking by the Courier-Times that demonstrated Murphy’s claim to be false. 

Also, Murphy laughably disclaimed receiving any support from the left wing group MoveOn.org, denying that they have sent any emails on his behalf.  Two emails sent by MoveOn.org on behalf of Muprhy can be viewed here and here.

“Once again Congressman Murphy can’t move beyond his own talking points and confront the facts,” said Fitzpatrick, “he continues to lie about my record and try to rehabilitate his own.”

Congressman Murphy also said that the massive Obamacare bill that has led to increased premiums was “a good bill,” that he was “proud to support.” 

“Bucks Countians aren’t buying what Patick Muphy is selling,” said Fitzpatrick, “whether it’s Obamacare, the stimulus that subsidized foreign jobs, cash for clunkers that paid for foreign cars, or bailouts that paid obscene bonuses to Wall Street executives, Patrick Murphy has been out of step with Bucks County.”

During the debate at Bucks County Technical High School, Patrick Murphy hedged when he was pressed by the moderator Larry Kane on whether he would support Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.

“Murphy’s refusal to commit to Nancy Pelosi is a recognition that the policies she has pushed have been a disaster for our economy,” said Fitzpatrick. “Unfortunately, after voting with her 97% of the time, its a little late for our nation and our district for Congressman Murphy to try to distance himself from her.”
