Dear Dean

Dean Heller’s retirement card

Dear Dean,

No doubt you will have plenty of time in your retirement to sit and wonder why you lost your senate seat. Here is brief list of your sins:

During the recession and while many, many Nevadans struggled to pay for basic necessities, you sided with the banks. You failed to vote yes to a bill that would have given bank customers a 15 day grace period before they were charged late fees and interest penalties. You failed to protect your constituents by accepting bribes, donations from big banks.

You failed to vote to protect Net Neutrality even as the majority of Americans wanted it protected.

You voted to end the Affordable Health Care act, and end protection for people with pre-existing conditions, and leave thousands of Nevadans without medical insurance. Even your fellow Republican and friend Governor Brian Sandoval felt betrayed by this.

You voted to permanently lower taxes for the wealthy while the breaks for the working class are set to expire in 2025. Now the country is faced with a deficit that your party wants to lower by reducing Medicare and Social Security.

You voted to confirm an unfit judicial candidate to the Supreme Court. This man who was accused of assault could not even comport himself civilly when questioned by a female Senator. Did it not occur to you that a man who could not sit through a hearing without outbursts and resorting to nasty rebuttals might have been an out of control privileged teen? It may have, but you voted along party lines anyway.

You were sent to Congress to represent the people in your state. Instead you lined your pockets with corporate money, voted on bills that hurt the very people who voted you in, and sided with the most corrupt administration in modern times. Do we need to list the number of Trump campaign aids who are awaiting sentencing? If you cannot sleep at night, may we suggest counting them like sheep? Don’t forget to add his personal attorney in the list!

You will now have to spend the rest of your life explaining to your granddaughters why you chose to align yourself with a man who bragged about walking into teen beauty pageant dressing rooms to eye naked girls. You have to explain to them why you aligned yourself with a man who bragged about grabbing women “by their pussies”. You and those like you who chose party (Trump) over Country will go down as the worst Senators in American history, just as Trump is poised to go down as the most corrupt and inept President America has ever seen. History will not be kind to this man or those who followed him.

In the words of the man whose ass your head is in, YOU’RE FIRED!!!

Signed,

The Women of Nevada
