Sen. Heller Casts Deciding Vote to Advance Trump’s Dangerous Healthcare Plan

“Senator Heller Let Nevada Down”

(Las Vegas, NV) — Sen. Deal Heller (R-NV) voted today to move forward with plans to take away healthcare from millions of Americans. Heller’s action is the first step in the GOP’s reckless efforts to dismantle our nation’s healthcare system. In response to Heller’s dangerous vote, NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada state director Caroline Mello Roberson issued the following statement:

“Today, Sen. Heller let Nevada down. When it mattered most, Sen. Heller sided with Donald Trump and cast the deciding vote that could leave millions of families without basic healthcare. Nevadans are furious by Sen. Heller’s decision to play politics with our health and wellbeing. Now more than ever before, NARAL members are mobilizing to hold Sen. Heller accountable for his out-of-touch agenda. Heller might have forgotten who hired him to do this job, but millions of women and families in Nevada haven’t and we will continue to hold him accountable.”
