Gil Cisneros on Tax Reform
Gil Cisneros (D): Yes. Supports a tax increase for the wealthy to balance the budget.
Young Kim (R): No. Signed the Americans for Tax Reform pledge to not raise taxes.
Q: Taxes: Support President Trump's tax cuts?
Gil Cisneros (D): No. "Massive tax handout to big corporations & special interests." Says average taxpayer in district lost over $11,000 from capping of state & local tax deductions. Result is "self-created deficit" and threatened "cuts to Medicare, Social Security, & Children's Health Insurance Program."
Young Kim (R): Yes. Said Trump Tax cut gives money back to the middle class. But would work to lift cap on deductibility of state taxes.
The Christian Coalition Voter Guide inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Make federal income tax cuts permanent' Christian Coalition's self-description: "Christian Voter Guide is a clearing-house for traditional, pro-family voter guides. We do not create voter guides, nor do we interview or endorse candidates."
Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
