A transcript of Moriarty’s (D-Gloucester) comments follow:

“It’s unfortunate that the governor has decided to veto this legislation. It’s, quite frankly, disturbing as well. But at least now we know where the governor is.

“The governor has chosen to back 16,000 millionaires over 600,000 seniors.

“I think it’s unfortunate. We hope to continue to try to change his mind and I think, if he’s wise, he will change his mind.”
