Bryan Caforio Statement on Steve Knight’s Vote for GOP Tax Scam
Caforio Blasts Knight for Raising Middle-Class Taxes and Taking Away Healthcare
Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, Congressman Steve Knight refused to represent his constituents’ best interests and voted to raise taxes on working families. Middle-class families in the 25th Congressional District will be hit especially hard because of the cap on the property tax deduction and state and local tax deduction. Just a week after devastating wildfires blazed through Knight’s district, he voted to eliminate the deduction for losses due to wildfires. Additionally, the CBO estimates that 13 million people will lose their healthcare nationwide, including more than 31,000 people in Knight’s district.
Bryan Caforio, Democratic candidate for the 25th Congressional District, released the following statement:
“Instead of providing relief to middle-class families and small businesses in our community, Steve Knight’s tax scam is nothing more than a handout to billionaires, bankers, and big businesses. Steve Knight just voted to raise middle-class taxes by thousands of dollars, take healthcare away from 31,600 people in our community, and increase the deficit by more than a trillion dollars, all so he could give a windfall to wealthy corporations. Once again Steve Knight has sold us out to the highest bidder.”
The son of two public school teachers, Caforio was born and raised in Southern California, 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 and corporations. Bryan lives in Santa Clarita with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
