Senate debate: Twisting his voting record in Congress
During a Minnesota Senate debate, Kennedy tried to distinguish himself from the Bush administration, despite supporting the President with his vote 92% of the time. He noted that he voted against the No Child Left Behind Act in his first year in Congress, even though his voting record indicates the exact opposite.
Kennedy's senatorial campaign included the following plans: "define marriage as between one man and one woman," "recognize English as the official language of the United States," expand work requirements for welfare receipients, exempt US military members from prosecution as war criminals.
