The Chen Files (Deleted) Part 3: Tax Fighter vs. Biden Tax & Spender

Comparing the Records

After Congresswoman Michelle Steel’s nearly 7,000 vote victory in the June 7th primary, the field is now set in California’s 45th Congressional District. The choice for families couldn’t be more clear. 

Michelle Steel has spent her entire career fighting for and lowering taxes for California families. Jay Chen is a Joe Biden tax and spender who wants to raise taxes even higher. 

That’s just the start of the very clear differences in this race…

Taxes & Gas Prices


  • Opposed every Biden/Pelosi tax increase and massive spending plan
  • Supporting an all-of-the-above energy approach in order to help lower gas prices
  • As a Member of the California Board of Equalization, returned $400 million to California taxpayers 
  • As a County Supervisor, successfully passed a countrywide ballot measure to make it harder for politicians to raise taxes 
  • Called on Gov. Newsom to remove the state gas tax, especially ahead of the July 1st price increase during a time when gas is at near-record high prices
  • Introduced bipartisan legislation to protect victims of unemployment fraud, after criminals stole billions, costing the government and taxpayers 


  • Supports raising taxes massive spending including a radical single-payer health care plan that doubles taxes on every family in California
  • Supports policies that would actually raise the price of gas
  • Silent on California’s impending gas tax increase



  • Michelle believes in standing up to the Chinese Communist Party and their Confucius Institutes that seek to indoctrinate our universities. Even the U.S. Senate agrees, unanimously passing legislation to increase oversight and cut funds from these programs
  • Passed an amendment holding the CCP accountable for environmental abuses
  • Serves on the bipartisan, bicameral Congressional Executive Commission on China, which investigates and sheds light on China’s massive human rights violations 
  • Standing up to China and their unfair trade practices 


  • Invited the CCP into his classroom via Confucius Institutes
  • Despite broad bipartisan condemnation of the institutes, Chen has tripled down on his support of them even going so far as to raise money off the issue

Steel Supports AAPI Community, Chen Insults Them


  • Introduced a bipartisan resolution condemning hate crimes and discrimination against the AAPI community
  • Launched an AAPI Advisory Board to connect with AAPI leaders on key policy issues


  • Refuses to apologize for despicably insulting all first-generation Americans by mocking Steel’s accent
