Big Banks are rejoicing again, thanks to Senator Dean Heller’s vote for a tax bill that sells out working families to benefit Wall Street. After pocketing millions in campaign cash from Wall Street, Senator Heller helped write the GOP’s tax plan that will give massive permanent tax cuts to giant corporations.
This isn’t the first time this year Senator Heller has sided with Big Banks at the expense of Nevada families. Earlier this year, Senator Heller voted to confirm Wall Street millionaire and “Foreclosure King” Steven Mnuchin as President Trump’s Treasury Secretary. In October, Senator Heller cast the deciding vote to block consumers from being able to sue Big Banks — a decision that the Washington Post described as “handing Wall Street and other big financial institutions their biggest victory since President Trump’s election.”
Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Sarah Abel released the following statement:
“Senator Heller is so desperate to continue his career as a D.C. politician that he helped write a tax bill that puts corporate profits on Wall Street over what’s best for Nevada’s working families. The Big Banks and special interests bankrolling Heller’s re-election campaign shouldn’t come before his constituents, and Nevadans will hold him accountable for his misplaced priorities.”
