Activists Rallied at Rep. Knight’s Office to Launch Mobile Billboard Tour of Southern CA
August 14, 2017
Santa Clarita — Today, activists and local community groups, including CA 25 United for Progress, held a healthcare rally outside Congressman Steve Knight’s office to voice their concerns over his disastrous healthcare vote.
At the rally, HMP launched a two-day mobile billboard tour across five districts. This billboard is part of HMP’s accountability campaign to hold Congressman Steve Knight (CA-25), Congressman Ed Royce (CA-39), Congresswoman Mimi Walters (CA-45), Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (CA-48), and Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-49) accountable for their disastrous American Health Care Act (AHCA) vote.
The ad targeted these Members of Congress for their unforgiveable healthcare vote, specifically because it would impose an “Age Tax” on people over 50 who would see their premiums increase to up to five times more than younger people.
“Activists across the district are fired up to hold Congressman Knight’s feet to the fire for his disastrous healthcare vote,” said House Majority PAC Executive Director Charlie Kelly. “HMP decided to kick off our two-day tour of Southern California here in Santa Clarita and work with local activists, because we believe CA-25 deserves a Representative who will stand up for their interests. The AHCA was an unforgivable vote and we want to make sure voters are aware of just how devastating an age tax would be for older Americans.”
“We want to continue to remind our friends and neighbors across the district about the dangerous vote that Rep. Knight made just two months ago. It’s important for people to see the impact that ACA repeal will have on the residents of the district,” said CA 25 United for Progress Chair Philip Germain.
