Healthcare Protests Planned For Reno and Las Vegas This Weekend

Some Nevadans – concerned by Senator Dean Heller’s crucial swing vote to open debate on repealing the Affordable Care Act – are planning a series of protests this weekend.  Heller has said he will oppose any bill that doesn’t “improve Nevadans lives.” Two large rallies are planned for Saturday in Reno and Las Vegas, to try to convince him to oppose the repeal. They’re part of a nationwide day of action, with rallies in 125 cities. The rallies also kick off a bus tour, known as the “Drive For Our Lives,” with a stop in Reno July 31st.
