Sabato Jr.: Voting 'No' on Tax Cuts Is a Vote Against Americans

(Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live")

By    |   Tuesday, 19 December 2017 05:46 PM

Heartthrob actor Antonio Sabato Jr., who is running for Congress as a California Republican next year, tells Newsmax TV he strongly backs the proposed tax reform bill now being weighed on Capitol Hill and believes Republicans who vote against it will be ousted from office.

"I certainly would vote yes, 100 percent," Sabato Jr. told host Miranda Khan on Tuesday's "America Talks Live." "[Those who don't], I think they're not going to get re-elected.

"The American voters, they know what's going on . . . so if you don't vote 'yes' on this tax reform, then you're pretty much against the American people.

"We got to take care of the middle class. They need to survive . . . This is going to be what we need. I urge that it's passed [Tuesday]. It looks really good so far. I'm crossing my fingers that it will."

Sabato Jr. – a former Calvin Klein model who has appeared on "General Hospital," "Melrose Place" and "The Bold and the Beautiful" – was asked whether passage of tax reform will make it easier for President Donald Trump to obtain long-sought funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall and overhaul immigration policy.

"You would think that, but there's nothing easy for our president," Sabato. Jr. told Khan. "As you see, he's not supported from both parties. We finally have a president who puts America first, and he's having the hardest time getting things done, but I believe he's the right man for the job.

"We need a border wall. We need to protect our American folks. And, most importantly, we got to stop paying $100 billion on immigration every single year. This is getting out of hand – $23 billion in California alone on immigration.

"I mean that's ridiculous to me that we're spending that kind of money and not focusing on veterans, on our homelessness all over California and all over our country, the opioids epidemic and addiction in general."

Sabato Jr. said he is excited about getting into politics and helping charge the nation for the better.

"I'm a proud American," he said. "I came here as an immigrant from Italy in 1985. I want to give back to my community, and I want to give back to my country. It's not about me. I work for the American people. I'm looking forward to getting in office in November of next year, and I'm going to get the job done.

"I'm not doing it for my party. I'm not doing it because I want to go to Washington. I'm doing it because I think my strength and my history and my story will help my country, and that's what it's about."

The seat Sabato Jr. seeks is held by Democrat Julia Brownley, 64, a former state Assembly member. Democrats hold a 12-point registration edge over Republicans in the district, which includes parts of Los Angeles and Ventura counties.
