Kean = Corrupt, Elitist, and WRONG for New Jersey
Tom Kean - as demonstrated by his long record - is not a conservative by any sense of the word. He is pro-big spending, pro-regulation, and has consistently been given failing scores from conservative watchdog groups while receiving surprisingly high scores and accolades from Leftist groups. His votes make him responsible for businesses leaving New Jersey for Texas or China, dozens of failed public projects that wasted our tax dollars, and a multitude of leftist wishlist policies that passed our legislature. He’s bad business and WRONG for New Jersey!
His record speaks for itself.
Kean voted YES to permit minors to give sole consent for mental illness or emotional disorders. This treatment would be completely confidential which means no parent or guardian could be contacted about it. A3435
Instead of lowering taxes to promote growth, Kean voted YES to give unelected bureaucrats the power to distribute taxpayer dollars to businesses that they deem would be a “benefit” to their community, allowing the government to pick winners and losers. A3353
Kean voted YES to create yet another expensive government oversight committee, further bureaucratizing New Jersey’s sluggish healthcare system and creating an unchecked system for burdensome regulations. A314
The American Conservative Union (ACU) gave Kean a 50% rating in 2017, 62% in 2018, and 57.5% in 2019 (79% in 2020 after Kean started “cleaning up” his record in preparation for this congressional run). He has voted against the ACU over 50 times.
American For Prosperity gave Kean an “F” in 2014 and another in 2018.
Ivoter does NOT score Kean as a conservative, he’s labeled as a “Moderate”
Kean received a 43% approval from Planned Parenthood. He is one of the highest rated Republicans in either Senate or Assembly.
Tom Kean first ended up in office – NOT because he was ELECTED by the people, but because he was SELECTED by the establishment – first in 2001 to the NJ Assembly, and again in 2003 to the NJ Senate.
