Rudy Salas, D-Calif., a member of the California Assembly running for Congress, has voted for dozens of tax increases despite a pledge not to support tax hikes without voter approval.

Salas — who has represented the Bakersfield, California, Assembly district since 2012 — has voted for at least 38 bills either affirming or introducing new taxes and fees worth a total of about $7.1 billion. However, Salas said in 2017 that he would not support any new tax increase unless voters approved it after voting against a gas tax and vehicle registration fee increase, the Sacramento Bee reported at the time.

"I can deal with someone being upset," Salas said in defense of his pledge. "I'm more worried about what the families in my district will have to endure now."
