  • GOP tax bills short-change middle class
    Posted in In the News on November 17, 2017 | Preview rr

    When considering any attempt to reform our tax code, the first question I ask myself is, “Will it help the middle class?” After carefully looking over the Republican tax bills proposed in the House and Senate, the only answer I can come to is, “No, these bills won’t help the middle class.” In fact, they will do just the opposite. The most glaring aspect of both of these proposals is how differently corporations and people are treated. Most notably is the fact that tax cuts for corporations are f... Read more

    Tags: Civil Rights

    When I put an LGBTQ rainbow Pride flag outside my Washington office in March 2015, it was to little fanfare. I also display one outside my office in San Diego. San Diego has a large and vibrant LGBTQ population, and the rainbow flag outside my office is a source of pride for my constituents and me. It only made sense to display it. It is a symbol of our commitment to full equality. One can understand my dismay and disappointment when I was slapped with a lawsuit last week for flying the Pride fl... Read more

Quinn Dang said the president failed to address how his policy hurt the lives of people who were trying to immigrate to the United States in limbo, sparked chaos at airports... Read more

    Despite steep pay raises since the 9/11 terror attacks, too many military personnel still struggle to feed their families and need an easier way to get food stamps, according to a new bill from a San Diego congresswoman. Susan Davis has introduced the Military Hunger Prevention Act in a bid to exempt the military’s Basic Allowance for Housing — a central component of most troops’ compensation — when determining eligibility for food stamps and 17 other federal food programs. The legislation comes... Read more

  • Let’s not blame Social Security and Medicare for the national debt
    Posted in In the News on November 4, 2016 | Preview rr

    Recent reports about the national debt have mistakenly conflated benefits from Social Security and Medicare with the national debt. Let’s be clear, Social Security and Medicare are not drivers of the national debt. Much of this argument comes from opponents to Social Security and Medicare. They blame these programs and imply that our national-debt issue will be solved by “entitlement reform.” Keep in mind, to opponents of Social Security and Medicare, reform means cutting benefits, privatizing o...
