I have heard many voices that have admonished Congressman Katko for not representing his constituents in Congress when it comes to the recent debate concerning tax reform. I think those people are wrong. Congressman Katko is representing his constituents in Congress and one only needs to look at his Federal Election Commission reports to realize who his constituents are: Virginia tobacco producer the Altria Group, Oklahoma’s Chesapeake Energy Corp., Indiana pharmaceutical manufacturer Eli Lilly, Pacific Gas and Electric from California, Koch Industries of Kansas, the Florida Sugar Cane League and many others that will benefit from the current tax reform proposal and have donated thousands and thousands of dollars to Congressman Katko. I applaud John Katko for vigorously advocating for his constituents, it’s just unfortunate that none of them are in the 24th Congressional district.
