The Most Crucial Election of our Lifetime
“This November’s elections are more important than any I can remember in my lifetime, and that includes when I was on the ballot.”
- Barack Obama ,October 22, 2018
The main concerns for residents in New York’s 19th district are jobs, clean air and water, access to affordable healthcare and lower property taxes.
John Faso has let us down on every one of those things.
Our taxes are higher since he got elected, thanks to his support of a tax cut for billionaires which capped the NY State SALT deduction. In May 2017 he cast a vote that, had it passed the Senate, would have resulted in the loss of healthcare for over 35,000 of his own constituents. He has voted to curb SNAP recipients benefits by mandating work requirements. He has voted in favor of the fossil fuel industry and allowing coal waste to be dumped into streams (HJ Res 38). He holds a 34% rating from the League of Conservation Voters, one of the lowest environmental ratings in the State. Additionally, Faso has voted with Trump 89% of the time despite his promise in early 2017 to stand up to him. He has taken over $800,000 from Corporate PACS in this election cycle alone.
John Faso’s special interest agenda is the very embodiment of his party, the GOP, which has completely lost sight of the American citizenry as a whole. We are facing a very real crisis in our democracy as we enter this crucial election. We are seeing democratic norms and institutions eroded by both the Trump administration’s policies and (what has now become) a far right Republican party, whose agenda is wholly beholden to mega donors and corporate interests.
This is no longer looking anything like a government that is for the people by the people.
During this election cycle a string of appalling racist ads are being broadcast by several members of the GOP, including our very own John Faso. Since John Faso has no positive record of doing anything to help his constituents, he has chosen to use scare tactics to get people to vote for him.
It would be impossible to list out all the destruction the current administration is doing to our nation. If you are paying attention to the bigger picture you know that we cannot afford to lose this election. If we do not flip the House to put some brakes on the current administration we may find ourselves in situation where it is simply too late to reverse course.
Your vote this November 6th to flip our Congress blue is literally the most important and patriotic thing you can do for your country. Join us by voting to safeguard America and fighting for a democracy that works for everyone.
