Nevada Reps Take Heat at Reno Town Hall

A packed townhall meeting hosted by Senator Dean Heller and Congressman Mark Amodei became a shouting match, as people battled over the Affordable Care Act, Planned Parenthood Funding and other issues. The overflow crowd jammed two conference rooms at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, leaving hundreds more outside. Neither Heller nor Amodei supported the failed “American Health Care Act,” and many in the crowd made it clear they’d be supporting others for their offices if they did. Many were battling illnesses and said the only reason they were able to get care was because of the Affordable Care Act, or through access to clinics which have been targeted for cuts.
