NV Dems Statement on Tonight’s GOP Debate(s)

Las Vegas, NVNevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement in response to the Republican presidential debate(s) tonight:

“While there might have been different Republican debates tonight, the anti-middle class policies we heard from every candidate were the same.  From wanting to reopen Yucca Mountain, to stealing from Sharron Angle’s playbook by calling for the ‘phasing out’ of Medicare, to opposing an increase in the minimum wage, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and the rest of the Republican field tonight rehashed the same failed ideas Nevadans have repeatedly rejected.  Tonight’s debate highlighted the stark contrast between the Democratic presidential candidates who are talking about making the economy work for everyone, not just the wealthy, with Republican candidates who will put Wall Street special interests and billionaires like the Koch Brothers ahead of Nevada middle class families.”
