August 21 independent debate
Evan Falchuk and Jeffrey McCormick discussed the state's economic fortunes, taxes and a statewide referendum on casinos in a debate hosted by Middlesex Community College. Falchuk, who is running as the United Independent Party candidate, argued that high healthcare costs and limited housing options have led to the state's economic struggles. McCormick countered that job creation and energy costs are the main culprits for economic problems.
McCormick was taken to task by Falchuk over his proposal for a lowered state income tax and shrinking of state agencies. This proposal would establish a five-percent income tax and reduce the number of state jobs by eliminating positions as employees retire or move to new jobs. Falchuk suggested that the proposal doesn't make financial sense, and pushed McCormick to name specific jobs that should be eliminated. McCormick countered that recent investigations into corruption at the state probation department highlights the state's wasteful spending.
The two independent candidates also sparred over Question 3 on the November 4 ballot, which would repeal a 2011 law that allows resort casinos to operate in Massachusetts. McCormick supports Question 3, claiming that the law is only beneficial to casino operators. Falchuk opposes Question 3, as he believes that the people of Massachusetts and their representatives already dealt with the matter. He compared the measure to efforts by congressional Republicans to sue President Barack Obama over the Affordable Care Act.
