Moments ago, Republican Senator Dean Heller voted to pass a tax bill that will spike health care premiums, hike taxes for many working and middle-class families, and add more than $1 trillion to the debt—while slashing taxes for the richest 1 percent and huge corporations.
Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II released the following statement on Senator Heller voting for the GOP’s tax bill:
“This reckless tax bill is an unpopular disaster, and Senator Heller should be embarrassed that he had anything to do with writing this bill. Yet again, Senator Heller has done the bidding of his rich donors and rubber stamped Mitch McConnell’s agenda at the expense of regular Nevadans. This tax plan was never about bringing relief to the working families and small businesses who need it most – it was about pandering to Republican primary voters and sucking up to billionaire mega-donors. Nevadans will remember Senator Heller’s unwavering support for this shameful tax bill in 2018.”
