McClintock’s Skewed Values

Our decisions about how we spend our money reflect our values. They reveal who we are more than many other decisions we make. And so we know exactly who Tom McClintock is, and why we must replace him as our representative in California's 4th District.

Tom McClintock likes to talk about the tax bill that Republicans forced through in 2017. That hyper-partisan bill slashed taxes on the wealthy, giving large permanent tax cuts to people who already have far more than they will ever need, and small, temporary tax cuts to the rest of us. It blew up our deficit — which skyrocketed to nearly a trillion dollars every year — with little to show in return. Businesses didn't invest as they had promised. The Nation's GDP has remained stagnant. Wages are barely budging, leaving too many working families struggling to make ends meet. The tax bill was designed to shift the Nation’s tax burden to blue states like California. And still, Tom McClintock passionately defends that massive give-away to the wealthy.

Democrats would spend your tax dollars differently. As this article discusses, in April of this year, Democrats joined with Republicans to agree on a bipartisan $2 trillion infrastructure spending bill. That important piece of legislation would have spent our taxpayer dollars where they're most needed — repairing and replacing our decades-old highways and bridges, many of which are dangerously neglected — while creating an untold number of good jobs across the Nation. This spending would make a real difference in people's lives. But the White House shut it down and has done nothing to bring it back to life. And neither has Tom McClintock. All along, and despite the desperate need for infrastructure spending in California's 4th District, Tom McClintock has been silent. It's been three years since he posted anything about infrastructure on his Congressional page. He's done nothing to advance this critical need.

California's 4th District deserves better. We deserve a representative who sees our challenges with clear eyes and takes meaningful action to fix them. We deserve a representative who truly cares about what happens in this District. We deserve a representative who will fight for us.

Join us, as we fight to send Tom McClintock back to his own District, and to finally stop him from selling us out, one vote at a time.

Because we know, as Margaret Mead said, that “a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
