Activists take to Senator Heller's office hours after vote on 'skinny' repeal of Obamacare
LAS VEGAS (KSNV NEWS3LV) —
Hours after Nevada senator Dean Heller voted yes on the “skinny” repeal of Obamacare, activists appeared at his Las Vegas office.
Union members delivered a 100-foot long scroll containing the names of 10,000 voters opposed to repealing the Affordable Care Act.
“We are gonna continue to hold Senator Heller accountable, and other members of Congress, until we know that healthcare has been protected and improved for all Nevadans,” said Andres Ramirez, with the Alliance for Healthcare Security.
Democrats want to use Heller’s vote to help unseat him in 2018.
“I do believe that he’s going to keep his seat, and I support him,” said Lia Roberts, former chairman of the Nevada Republican Party.
Roberts also wants Republicans and President Trump to keep working toward repeal.
“The Obamacare as it was, has to be definitely changed, and I have all my hopes that this is gonna happen definitely this year,” Roberts told News 3.
Heller was still in Washington and didn’t see the small demonstration outside his office Friday morning.
