BREAKING: Dean Heller Votes to Hike Taxes On Middle Class

Heller’s Plan Would Increase Taxes on Nevadans and Strip Thousands of Health Care

In response to Sen. Dean Heller’s vote in the Senate Finance Committee to push through a tax plan that would cut taxes on the rich, paid for by hiking taxes on the middle class, American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp made the following statement:

“With this vote, Dean Heller just put himself on the side of millionaires and big corporations, who will see a massive tax cut paid for by hiking taxes on middle class Nevadans. His plan helps corporations ship jobs oversees, and even creates a new tax break for corporate jet owners. Just as bad, Heller’s plan would strip health care from thousands of Nevadans, hiking premiums for thousands more. Every word of this disastrous tax bill is proof that Heller has totally lost touch with Nevadans after a decade in Washington.”

Republican Governors Rightfully “Terrified” about their Chances in 2018

Following a shellacking in Virginia, Republican Governors are “reeling” as they start to come to terms with reality: Trump is a serious drag on their own campaigns. Republicans are now facing mid-term elections with a President who is astonishingly unpopular and a party that is in danger of losing a Senate seat in the reddest of red states — in addition to Democratic enthusiasm we haven’t seen in years. Just take a look at some of these headlines:

Politico: Democrats’ early money haul stuns GOP

Miami’s Local 10 Blasts Scott for Lax Nursing Home Regulation

In the latest turn in Rick Scott’s growing nursing home scandal, WPLG Miami has aired an explosive investigation into Gov. Scott for his lax regulation of nursing homes.

This lax regulation has persisted even in the wake of the deaths of 14 seniors at a nursing home following Hurricane Irma, WPLG reveals. And WPLG’s Bob Norman has the answer for Scott’s unconscionable deregulation of nursing homes: campaign cash.

Watch the special report from WPLG:

“Rick Scott’s deregulation of the nursing home industry was driven by his desire for campaign cash, not the health and safety of Florida seniors,” said American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp. “For seven years Rick Scott’s has been putting what is best for him and his wealthy cronies first, and putting Floridians last — and 14 Florida seniors tragically paid the price.”

NEW AD: McSally Refuses to Condemn Moore’s History of Sexual Assault

In the days since news broke that Alabama enate candidate Roy Moore sexually molested two teenage girls and made advances on three others between the ages of 16 and 18, Congresswoman Matha McSally has been shockingly silent.

A new ad from American Bridge holds McSally accountable for his cowardly silence, which enables a predator like Roy Moore to seek public office.The ad shows Arizonans that McSally has failed to even simply condemn Moore’s horrific actions.

“Martha McSally’s silence is a disgraceful and gutless response to the serious reports of Roy Moore’s sexual assault,” said American Bridge spokesperson Allison Teixeira Sulier. “By remaining silent, McSally is putting blind partisan loyalty first and enabling a sexual predator. Arizonans are going to hold Martha McSally accountable for the company she keeps — count on it.”

The digital ad is targeted at persuadable Arizona voters. As vulnerable Republicans around the country fail to speak out against Moore, American Bridge plans to replicate […]
