What Matters (Updated: October 8, 2018)

SYNOPSIS

Steve Knight plays the insider, politics-as-usual games that represent everything wrong with Washington. When we need him most, Knight puts Washington politics (not the president) and the special interests that fund his campaign ahead of his constituents at home.

ACT 1

Now that voters have seen info about Knight’s trips, they need to see that Knight has taken $147,100 in campaign contributions from the insurance industry, and he returned the favor by giving them a huge corporate tax break. Meanwhile, with health care costs skyrocketing for Californians, Knight caved to his party leaders and voted to increase premiums and eliminate coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

PROOF POINTS

Knight voted for Trump’s health care bill that increased premiums and gutted protections for pre-existing conditions, all while health costs for Californians has been skyrocketing. (BACKUP)

Knight voted for Trump’s tax scam bill that raised taxes on middle class Californians while giving insurance and pharmaceutical industries tax breaks. (BACKUP)

Knight has taken $147,100 from the insurance industry and $63,843 from the pharmaceutical industry. (BACKUP)

ACT 2

Democratic and Independent women, especially non-college and in the Antelope Valley, voters on the go need to know that instead of trusting women to make the choice that is right for them, Knight opposes legal abortion in all cases, including rape, incest, and when the life of the woman is in danger. Yet Knight also voted against requiring insurance companies to cover services like maternity care, which would cost women thousands more just for being pregnant.
