Heller addresses supporters in Fernley
From Reno Gazette-Journal:
FERNLEY — Speaking in front of a room full of supporters, Republican U.S. Senator Dean Heller told the audience if he is elected, he will not raise taxes, and he will build a Canada-Texas pipeline and repeal Obamacare.
The incumbent candidate spoke at the Fernley Republican Campaign Headquarters on Main Street. His speech was peppered with cheers as he made his 20-minute remarks.
Heller told the crowd–which included Lyon County Commissioners Ray Fierro, Chuck Roberts and Fernley Mayor LeRoy Goodman–that the current leadership in Washington, D.C., does not care about the next generation, just about the next election.
Heller said with past generations, the country was built on the notion that future generations would have a better quality of life. He went on to talk about his father, who was an auto mechanic who later purchased a business and opened Heller’s Transmission.
He was an employee who became an employer,” he said. “That was the American dream–to become an employer. He had to build his business, and the government didn’t build it. He taught me about hard work and diligence. He worked long hours if that’s what it took.”
Heller said his father didn’t become rich but wanted to make sure his children and his grandchildren has a better quality of life than he did.
“That’s what America’s all about,” he said.
