By Kenneth Quinnell Join Culinary Workers in Nevada in Asking Sen. Heller to Oppose Medicaid Attacks

Culinary Workers Union Local 226 and community partner PLAN (the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada) released a new video asking Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) to protect Medicaid. The video tells the stories of 10 Nevadans who are on Medicaid and what the program means in their lives. They are urging Heller to oppose attempts to strip Nevadans of the health care they not only have a right to, but which enables them to experience the freedom that other Americans enjoy.

Local 226 members in Las Vegas have been dedicating their lunch breaks to make hundreds of calls to Heller’s office to urge him to do the right thing.

Local 226 Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Arguello Kline said: “Sen. Heller must stand up for the working families who toil every day to make ends meet and do everything they can to provide for their families. We will hold Sen. Heller to his word—everyone should have access to health care—and that means voting against any bill that will result in anyone losing coverage.”

If you are one of Heller’s constituents in Nevada, call 702-388-6605 and ask him to do the right thing.
