Alek Skarlatos for Congress put out this social media message recently, reminding voters of Val Hoyle’s tax record.
“In 2013, Val Hoyle voted to raise taxes on hospitals and nursing homes. Val Hoyle failed to realize that these costs would be passed to seniors and families across Oregon, and today the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs has steadily increased, with prices expected to rise again in 2023. “It was shortsighted for Val Hoyle to raise taxes on Oregon’s hospitals and nursing homes because now these costs have been passed along through higher healthcare costs to seniors and families across Oregon,” said Oregon National Guard Veteran Alek Skarlatos. “I’m running for Congress to offer fresh ideas and new solutions, and it starts by lowering the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs, which Joe Biden, Val Hoyle, and the Democrats who run Washington have failed to accomplish.”
