Facing Bipartisan Opposition, Heller’s Reckless Health Care Repeal Bill Died in the Senate Exactly One Year Ago

But Senator Spineless is still “to this day” pushing to pass the Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson plan

Sen. Dean Heller put his name on Republican legislation last year that would have gutted health care funding for Nevada and slashed coverage protections for pre-existing conditions - the Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson bill. After weeks of shopping their reckless legislation to Republicans in the Senate, the bill finally died one year ago today in the face of bipartisan opposition. Despite its failure, Heller says he’s working “to this day” to revive the plan and finish dismantling the Affordable Care Act.

Here’s a quick recap on the fallout from Heller’s toxic repeal plan:

Rosen for Nevada spokesperson Molly Forgey released the following statement:

“Dean Heller put his name on legislation that would have slashed coverage protections for pre-existing conditions and gutted health care funding for our state, breaking the promises he made to Nevadans. It’s no surprise Heller couldn’t even find enough support within his own party to get this bill to the floor of the Senate for a vote - it would have been devastating for hardworking families in Nevada and across the country. No matter how hard Heller tries to rewrite history on health care between now and November, Nevadans won’t forget that Dean Heller is supporting this dangerous plan to spike their costs, gut their protections, and strip their coverage.”
