The recent smear ads attacking U.S. Army veteran Congressman Steve Knight, R-Palmdale, on his position on Social Security couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Despite what West Los Angeles lawyer Bryan Caforio’s desperate attacks claim, Steve Knight is dedicated to preserving Social Security benefits for U.S. retirees.

Far too often, political opportunists like Caforio deliberately misconstrue hot-button issues like Social Security in order to run a dirty smear campaign on their opponents. I have had enough of Caforio’s cheap attacks.

Not only is Steve Knight a supporter of Social Security, he is also willing to offer solutions to the issues that threaten its stability.

Knight is offering common-sense fixes to the broken program while Bryan Caforio wastes time hurling cheap political attacks. This stark contrast speaks volumes to the type of leadership both candidates bring to the table.

I want real leaders who offer real solutions and who will fight to preserve my Social Security. I don’t want political opportunists who pounce on the opportunity to throw mud.

Steve Knight has stepped up as the only adult in the room when it comes to the issue. I hope others will follow his lead.
