New ad details how Heller goes wherever his party tells him to, caved to Republican leaders in Washington with his broken health care promise
Nevada Congresswoman and candidate for U.S. Senate Jacky Rosen’s campaign launched a new 30-second television ad today underscoring Sen. Dean Heller’s failure to be an independent voice for Nevada. “Line” features Rosen calling out Heller’s broken promise to protect Nevadans’ health care after caving to political pressure from President Trump and Republican leaders in Washington. One year ago today, Heller voted to dismantle the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and signed on to the radical Graham-Cassidy-Heller legislation that would slash protections for pre-existing conditions and gut Medicaid funding. The ad will begin airing tomorrow statewide.
“Nevadans can count on Jacky Rosen to be an independent voice who will put our state first and stand by her convictions, no matter the political pressure,” said Rosen for Nevada campaign manager Danny Kazin. “While Sen. Heller doesn’t have the spine to stand up to his party’s leaders in Washington, Jacky Rosen is working across party lines to solve problems, fix our health care system, and bring down costs for hardworking Nevada families.”
Jacky Rosen has a record in Congress of being an independent voice for Nevadans and working across the aisle to find common ground and real solutions. Jacky is a member of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, she is one of the most bipartisan freshmen members in the House of Representatives, and she was one of just 13 Democrats in Congress who received the Spirit of Enterprise Award this year from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Jacky Rosen: “Most Washington politicians just go wherever their party tells them to. Like Dean Heller, who promised to vote against the plan to repeal Obamacare because it would hurt Nevada. But when President Trump put the pressure on…”
President Trump: “You weren’t there, but you’re gonna be. You’re gonna be.”
Jacky Rosen: “Dean Heller got back in line.”
News Clip: “A complete 180.”
News Clip: “He decided not to cross Trump.”
Jacky Rosen: “I’m Jacky Rosen, and I approve this message because I’ll work to fix Obamacare… and I won’t walk the party line.”
