CA25 - Steve Knight

 

Congressman Steve Knight votes with Trump almost all the time, even though Clinton beat Trump in this district by almost seven points. Knight doesn’t think Americans have a right to review Trump’s taxes to determine if he has any conflicts of interest. He’s voted to defund Planned Parenthood, voted against bilingual education, and as a State Senator, voted to allow the Confederate Flag on state property. He’s far too extreme for this district. CA-25 is a major pickup opportunity for Democrats.

Congressman Knight has consistently voted against Medicaid, yet:

  • 32% of the children in CA-25 are on Medicaid or CHIP, and
  • 14% of the adults in CA-25 are on Medicaid

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

  • 16,982 households in CA-25 receive SNAP, and 22.9% of them have a senior 60 or older in the household and 67.9% of them have a child under 18

Congressman Knight 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-25 residents:

  • Drop In Uninsured Rate Thanks to the Affordable Care Act in CA-25: 50.3%, from 14.9% to 7.4%
  • Number of CA-25 Residents Covered Under the ACA’s Medicaid Expansion: 52,700
  • Number of CA-25 Residents Covered Through the ACA’s Marketplace Under Covered California: 25,300
