CDNY Names the 2016 Congressional Election in the 21st District, a “Priority Race.”

The College Democrats of New York has names the 2016 congressional election in the 21st district, a "priority race." Congressmember Elise Stefanik's out of touch record does not reflect the views of the 21st district and we are committed to using our network of volunteers and resources to winning the seat back. 

STEFANIK IS BAD ON THE ISSUES AND BAD FOR NEW YORK.

Rep. Stefanik on the Issues:

  • Voted to weaken Dodd-Frank regulations on Wall Street, while taking more contributions from hedge funds during the 2014 campaign than any other member of the House, including the Speaker. 
  • Opposes Affordable Care Act 
  • Opposes NY SAFE Act 
  • No amnesty for undocumented immigrants

CDNY Names the 2016 Congressional Election in the 23rd District, a “Priority Race.”

CONGRESSMAN TOM REED'S RECORD INDICATES THAT HE PUTS POLITICS BEFORE THE NEEDS OF HIS CONSTITUENTS.

Rep. Reed's voting record includes voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act at every opportunity and voting against measures that would help students refinance their student loans and lessen the crushing burden of debt. Having voted repeatedly for tax breaks for America's top 1% of income earners, Rep. Reed apparently believes America's wealthiest are more deserving of financial relief than its students. 

New Yorkers are tired of out of touch politicians and deserve better.

Rep Reed on the Issues:

  •   "Zero" rating from Planned Parenthood for anti-choice votes. 
  • Voted to shut down the government, and voted against a bipartisan bill to avoid default. 
  • Denies climate change. 
  • Voted against minimum wage increases, while supporting tax breaks for incomes over $1 million.
