California House District 26 guide: Brownley vs. Jacobs

Brownley said she sympathizes with the struggle many Americans are facing, noting recent legislative wins by Democrats that could ease the burden, including a $2,000 annual spending cap on prescription drugs for Medicare beneficiaries, as well as $35 monthly insulin cap for patients on Medicare.

If Democrats retain control of Congress, Brownley said, they would fight for measures like paid family leave and the extension of the Expanded Child Tax Credit, which expires at the end of 2021.

Jacobs said he believes inflation is being caused by unsustainable spending. He said he supports legislation like neighboring GOP Rep. Mike Garcia’s Inflation Prevention Bill, which would prevent new spending thought to increase inflation, at least until the national inflation rate falls below 4.5%.

He also said he wants to try to increase domestic energy production. When asked about supporting new offshore drilling off the California coast, he said he prefers an “all-of-the-top” approach.

“Our rich domestic supply is cheaper. It’s cleaner. Importantly, this would lead to more blue-collar jobs right here in the community,” Jacobs said.
