Why CA-45 Counts

Rep. Walters has spent much of her time in office accepting money from Big Oil, the NRA, the real estate industry, and other lobbyists — and then votes in their interests rather than her own constituents’. Here’s a snapshot of how she has been misrepresenting Orange County:

Health Care: Over 69,000 residents of Walters’ district receive health care thanks to the Affordable Care Act and support it, but she voted for Trumpcare which would have increased the cost of insurance and kicked millions off their current coverage.

Immigration: Over 225,000 of Walters’ constituents were not born in the U.S., but Walters voted to give authorities more power to deport and deny admission to immigrants who are only suspected of being in gangs. She also voted to penalize areas that implement sanctuary policies to protect immigrants.

Gun Safety: The NRA gives Walters an A for repeatedly opposing common sense gun safety legislation that would help protect her constituents and their loved ones from gun violence.

Tax Reform: Walters voted in favor of Trump’s Tax Scam which gave tax cuts to the wealthy and large corporations, while hurting the working class families in her district and across the nation.

Environment: Walters has voted to loosen the rules for energy companies to reduce waste and emissions and also voted against a policy that would keep groundwater safe from contaminants. Furthermore, she has strongly supported Trump’s offshore drilling proposal that could harm our shores and co-sponsored a bill that states our country should not mitigate the effects of climate change.

Walters is out of sync with her constituents, and she’s shown no signs of changing. Join us in winning back her seat and giving her constituents the representative they — and the rest of the nation — deserve.
