Sen. Dean Heller is a "no" on the Senate health care bill released yesterday, he announced today alongside Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval. Both emphasized how beneficial expanding Medicaid has been for the state. Heller also said he's concerned about a provision that would let states waive the Affordable Care Act's benefit requirements.

What he said: "This bill that's currently in front of the United States Senate is not the answer. It's simply not the answer…In this form, I will not support it ... It doesn't protect Nevadans on Medicaid and the most vulnerable Nevadans."
