Steve Knight Misleads Seniors on Social Security

Forgets to Tell Them He Thinks Social Security “Was A Bad Idea”

Santa Clarita, Calif. – Yesterday Steve Knight attended the Antelope Valley Senior Expo to meet with local seniors. Knight’s appearance flies in the face of his anti-senior, anti-Social Security record.

Rep. Knight has made it no secret that he believes Social Security “was a bad idea.” However, Knight’s anti-senior record isn’t just limited to his negative views on Social Security. In addition to voting to jeopardize Social Security disability benefits, Knight has also voted against protections in elder care facilities, voted against regulating the life insurance industry, and voted to turn Medicare into a voucher program.

“While it’s surprising that Rep. Steve Knight finds it easier to stand against Social Security than to stand up to Donald Trump, it doesn’t excuse his lack of commitment to seniors in the 25th District,” said Orrin Evans, Caforio’s Campaign Manager. “Knight is ‘not a big fan’ of Social Security because he’s not a big fan of seniors’ issues. Bryan Caforio recognizes how important it is that we uphold our promises to seniors, and he will fight to strengthen and secure Social Security so that seniors and future generations can live with dignity.”

Knight’s anti-senior record includes:

Caforio was born and raised in Southern California by two public school teachers, attended UCLA and Yale Law School, worked for a United States federal judge, and practices as an attorney taking on some of the world’s biggest banks. Bryan lives in Santa Clarita with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
The 25th District covers northern Los Angeles County and part of Ventura County including the Antelope Valley, Palmdale, Lancaster, Santa Clarita, and Simi Valley. President Obama won the district in 2008, and experts consider this race a toss-up . Last year Democratic registration eclipsed Republican registration, and the district is now majority-minority. National Republicans list Congressman Knight as one of their most vulnerable incumbents.
