Five of the state's GOP members of Congress are being targeted in television advertisements that began airing Saturday about the Republican tax reform plan that would disproportionately impact residents of high-tax states such as California.
The ads, which urge constituents to order their representatives in Congress to oppose the plan, are airing on cable and network stations in districts represented by Darrell Issa of Vista, Steve Knight of Palmdale, Dana Rohrabacher of Costa Mesa, Ed Royce of Fullerton and Mimi Walters of Irvine.
“The Republican tax plan will raise taxes on California families by eliminating middle-class tax deductions to pay for a massive tax break for the super wealthy and big corporations,” a narrator says during the 30-second ad. “Tell your member of Congress to vote ‘no’ on the Republican tax plan. California families can’t afford it.”
