Nevada Congresswoman and candidate for U.S. Senate Jacky Rosen’s campaign launched two new 30-second television ads today slamming Sen. Dean Heller’s tax giveaway to big corporations and the richest 1 percent, and pushing back on offensive Republican attacks dismissing her business experience and questioning her education.
“Caved” details Jacky’s support for fiscally responsible middle class tax cuts and the reality of Heller’s reckless tax windfall to corporate CEOs and the ultra-wealthy. The new tax law adds nearly $2 trillion to the national debt, and Republicans in Washington are saying they want to cut Social Security and Medicare to pay for it. Instead of putting Nevada first, Heller caved to his party leaders and the special interests.
“Everybody” highlights Jacky’s career as a computer programmer working for some of Nevada’s biggest companies and running her own independent consulting business. The ad denounces Heller’s debunked attacks on her business experience and college degree, hits that have been described by journalists and editorials as “desperate” and “garbage.”
TRANSCRIPT - “Caved”
Jacky Rosen: “I’m Jacky Rosen, there’s a difference between Dean Heller and me on taxes. I support fiscally responsible middle class tax cuts. Dean Heller voted for the new tax law that gives almost all the benefits to the richest one percent and big corporations. It adds trillions in debt, and now they want to cut Social Security and Medicare to pay for it. Dean Heller caved to party leaders and the special interests. I approve this message because Nevada should come first.”
TRANSCRIPT - “Everybody”
Jacky Rosen: “I’m Jacky Rosen, and I’m proud of everything I’ve accomplished in my career. I worked my way through college as a waitress, became a computer programmer for some of Nevada’s biggest companies, then ran my own independent consulting business. With all that, Dean Heller says my business experience doesn’t count. He even manipulated video footage to question my college degree. I approve this message because that’s offensive to everybody who’s had to work their way up.”
