LAS VEGAS – Following yesterday’s vote on the final Republican tax package in the Senate, Battle Born Progress released the following statement:

Battle Born Progress Executive Director Annette Magnus said, “Last night, Senator Dean Heller betrayed Nevadans and the rest of the country. The Republicans’ tax bill is not relief or reform, it is a veiled attack on health care and a gift to the wealthy and big corporations. To pay for permanent corporate tax cuts in the bill, the Republicans will repeal the individual responsibility provision of the Affordable Care Act, which will destabilize markets, strip 13 million Americans of health insurance, and raise premiums 10%. They will also now work to strip Medicaid and Medicare from hard working Americans. To say we are disappointed in Senator Heller is an understatement. We are outraged. Heller’s constituents made their voices heard on this scam and he flat out ignored them. Nevadans will remember this vote and Heller will be held accountable for not only supporting this scam but also having helped write it.”
