OTOH the odds of McClintock's seat being won by a Dem are like the odds of Maxine Waters' seat being won by a Repub.
Per the bolded, funny you mention that, because despite Waters' district having a Cook PVI of D+37, a certain poster from Texas whose profile name rhymes with Spent Crow seems to think that Omar Navarro will beat Waters next year 😂

Yea R Valadao, David CA 21st
Yea R Nunes, Devin CA 22nd

Yea R Royce, Ed CA 39th
Yea R Calvert, Ken CA 42nd
Yea R Walters, Mimi CA 45th
Yea R Hunter, Duncan CA 50th

We Californians need to remember this in 2018.
California's gripe is with the state who created the massive amounts of taxes you pay.

Democrats passed a huge tax bill called Obamacare. I have no sympathy for when they whine about this reduction (for me).

Crying one second that taxes are increasing, then in the next, over deficits due to tax cuts, claiming they are handouts, is kinda silly..

I've never seen anyone flip flop this fast in my life...

62% of California’s likely voters are homeowners. It’s hard to believe that they’d be happy their deductions were sacrificed so corporate taxes could be substantially cut.

And they’ll be voting next November. Corporations won’t be.


Realtors are worried about Trump's tax plan. California homeowners should be too - LA Times

Corporations are people too!

Alabama grabs $3 for every $1 they put into the Federal tiller. Why do those moochers feel entitled to more?

You seem confused. Your GOP reps are increasing deficits and taxes on the middle class - yes, both - to pay off their rich donors. And if you think this'll be good for the economy, you're an idiot.
