Before becoming a candidate for U.S. Senate, Matt Bevin openly and personally praised TARP, the Federal Reserve inflationary policies, and the government takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. In an October 2008 report to his investment clients, Bevin said, “Most of the positive developments have been government led, such as the effective nationalization of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the passage of the $700 billion TARP (don’t call it a bailout) and the Federal Reserve’s intention to invest in commercial paper.” Now that Matt is trying to con people into believing he's a conservative, Matt has reinvented his views. His entire justification for running for Senate is his opposition to the policies he vocally supported before becoming a candidate.
Lied on Resume
On his LinkedIn Account, Matt Bevin indicated that he studied entrepreneurship at the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology. MIT, however, has no record of him ever attending. After being challenged on his lie, Bevin changed his profile to read "The School of Life."
When Matt Bevin’s uninsured business caught fire he campaigned with liberal Senator Richard Blumenthal to obtain a bailout, calling Blumenthal a champion of small-business. Bevin, whose company had incurred at least 7 tax liens, obtained a $200,000 bailout from the State of Connecticut. Mr. Bevin went so far as to say to the state that he had no unpaid taxes, leading some legal experts to believe he committed a crime. Matt Bevin, he won’t pay taxes, but he’ll take a taxpayer bailout!
