GOProud has officially endorsed Republican Sean Bielat in the 4th District Congressional race in Massachusetts, effectively turning its back on the notorious incumbent, Barney Frank. In other words, it’s time to give Bailout Barney the political heave-ho.
GOProud’s official announcement follows:
After almost 30 years in Washington, Barney Frank is everything that is wrong with politics today. Instead of supporting pragmatic approaches to healthcare, social security and tax reform that would help gay and lesbian families, Barney Frank has preferred to play partisan politics and serve as the all-too-willing attack dog for the most radical elements of the Democrat Party.
Sean Bielat and his wife are residents of Brookline, MA and recently had their first child, Theo. Bielat currently works as an independent consultant and serves as an officer in the Marine Corps Reserve.
Unlike Barney Frank, Sean Bielat supports free-market healthcare reforms that will make domestic partner benefits more available to gays and lesbians and will give individuals, not the government, more control over their healthcare. Sean also supports reforms to Social Security, creating personal savings accounts allowing gay and lesbian couples to leave their Social Security to their partners or whoever else they choose, reform opposed by Barney Frank.
Sean Bielat believes that marriage is a state issue and opposes a federal constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. Bielat strongly backs 2nd Amendment rights, supports efforts to aggressively fight terrorism and the spread of tyrannical anti-gay radical Islamic regimes and favors school choice.
On the issues that matter most to gay people, particularly to gay conservatives, Sean Bielat is the clear-cut choice in this race. Frankly Barney, it’s time for a change.
GOProud enthusiastically endorses Sean Bielat for Congress and urges our members and allies to support his conservative campaign.
