Buena Park, CA The Phil Janowicz for Congress Campaign today released the following statement on the Republican Tax Plan:
“By supporting the disastrous Republican budget, Ed Royce put Donald Trump and party bosses over his own constituents. Now the Republican tax plan puts corporate donors over California families and forces a tax hike on a third of middle-class Americans. By eliminating the student-loan interest deduction, Republican leaders prove they care more about their wealthy benefactors than our hard-working graduates. The thought that adding trillions to our deficit will create jobs is a fallacy. Instead, it forces huge cuts to healthcare, infrastructure, and education. This tax plan is bad news for working families across the 39th District and is just one more reason we need new leadership that puts our residents first; not billionaire donors and corporations.”
CA-39 has been recognized nationally as a top pickup opportunity for Democrats in 2018. Hillary Clinton won the district with a majority of the vote by 8.6 points. The Republican registration advantage has shrunk dramatically since the district was drawn in 2011 and is now under 2 points. The Nationally respected Cook Political Report moved this District away from the “Likely Republican” column and notes a “political outsider” is ideal to take on Ed Royce.
