Where will they land on Jay Chen?
Chen backs radical plan that doubles taxes on Californians but secretly deletes web pages in effort to fool voters, weeks of silence
Garden Grove, CA – News reports from Sacramento say the Progressive Caucus of the California Democratic Party are threatening to pull endorsements of Democrats who refuse to support a single payer health care proposal.
The question for California Progressives: what about Jay Chen?
Chen vociferously proclaimed his support for the radical government takeover of health care on his web site but when the Steel campaign highlighted that fact to voters, Chen secretly deleted the webpage that said:
I became a delegate for Bernie Sanders in 2016 because I believed in his vision of a single-payer national health care program.
Weeks later Chen still refuses to address why he backs a plan that places a $12,250 tax increase on every household in the state and why he would delete web pages showing his support for it.
