Background On Opponent David Valadao

  • Valadao has been in congress for 5 years, has collected hundreds of thousands in taxpayer-funded salary and has charged taxpayers for thousands worth of travel

  • Valadao talks a big game when it comes to immigration, but he has yet to actually deliver on his promises to fix our broken immigration system

It’s a miracle Congressman Valadao is still in the House. This is the most Democratic district in California represented by a Republican, and it’s not even close. Clinton beat Trump by more than 15 points in this district, and Democrats vastly outnumber Republicans here. Valadao voted against protecting LGBT Americans from workplace discrimination, and he’s consistently voted for cuts in the Medicaid program despite almost half of his constituents depending on it for their health care needs. It should come as no surprise that he’s afraid of his constituents, as he’s refused to hold a town hall this year.

Congressman Valadao has consistently voted against Medicaid, yet:

  • 64% of the children in CA-21 are on Medicaid or CHIP, and
  • 33% of the adults in CA-21 are on Medicaid

Congressman Valadao has consistently voted against the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which helps families in need provide healthy food for children and seniors, yet:

  • 46,566 households in CA-21 receive SNAP, and 16.8% of them have a senior 60 or older in the household and 82.8% of them have a child under 18

Congressman Valadao voted dozens of times to repeal the Affordable Care Act, even though it has contributed to a substantial increase in the number of insured CA-21 residents:

  • Drop In Uninsured Rate Thanks to the Affordable Care Act in CA-21: 52%, from 25.4% to 12.2%
  • Number of CA-21 Residents Covered Under the ACA’s Medicaid Expansion: 115,600
  • Number of CA-21 Residents Covered Through the ACA’s Marketplace Under Covered California: 15,800

Congressman Valadao has accepted $49,200 from the NRA.
