Nevada Dems Torch Heller For Repeal Vote

The Nevada Democratic Party delivered a harsh assessment of Senator Dean Heller’s vote for the failed “Skinny repeal” of the Affordable Care Act. Party Chairman William McCurdy II says Heller “Walked the plank for President Trump and proved he’s been playing Nevadan’s for fools.” McCurdy says the vote was a moral test and Heller failed miserably when he voted for a plan that would raise premiums by 20% a year and strip healthcare from 16 million Americans. McCurdy calls Heller’s vote, “Career defining.” Democrats say passage of “Skinny repeal” could have caused 22 thousand job losses in Nevada, and cost thousands more health insurance.
