DINA TITUS STATEMENT ON AFFORDABLE CARE ACT BEING UPHELD

 Seal of the US Supreme CourtLas Vegas, NV –  Dina Titus, Democratic candidate for Nevada's First Congressional District, released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court upholding the Affordable Care Act this morning:


“Today is a great day for children who can stay on their parents’ health insurance plans until they are 26, and people with preexisting conditions who had previously been discriminated against by private insurance companies.  I was proud to vote for this legislation that ended the worst abuses of the insurance industry.  While today is an important milestone in ensuring affordable, quality healthcare for Nevadans, we still have a lot more work to do in making healthcare more affordable for Nevada families.  What we can’t do is what Mitt Romney, Dean Heller, and Joe Heck want to do, which is to end Medicare by turning it over to profit-first private insurance companies.  In Congress, I will fight with President Obama and Shelley Berkley to create jobs and protect Nevada seniors from Washington Republicans trying to pull the rug out from under them.”

Statement on Unemployment Numbers

Today Dina Titus, candidate for Nevada's Congressional District One, released this statement regarding today's unemployment figures released:

“The December unemployment figures are promising but also demonstrate the need for Congress to take bold action to get people working again as far too many people are still unemployed or underemployed. I urge Republicans to stop trying to score political points by attacking President Obama and instead work with Democrats to create jobs.

“House Republicans need to quit playing partisan politics and reconvene to pass the middle class tax cut. If Speaker Boehner and his caucus do not do their job and extend the payroll tax cut, Nevada families will see a tax hike on January 1st at a time when they can least afford it. Washington Republicans need to stop putting tax cuts for billionaires and tax breaks for special interests ahead of Nevada families and pass the middle class tax cut now.”

Titus Joins Ranks of Ex-Members Seeking Comebacks

Roll Call
By: Kyle Trygstad

Former Rep. Dina Titus made it official Tuesday night that she is running again for Congress, joining a handful of her former colleagues ousted in the 2010 Republican wave.

“I’m Dina Titus, and I’m running for Congress,” the Democrat said on Jon Ralston’s “Face to Face” Nevada TV show.

Asked whether she would run against Rep. Joe Heck (R-Nev.), who unseated her last year in the 3rd district after one term in Congress, Titus noted that it’s still unclear what district she will end up running in. The Nevada redistricting process, which is now in the courts, was complicated by a fourth district added through reapportionment and a split Legislature and Republican governor unable to compromise on a new map.

“We have to wait and see where the lines are drawn,” Titus said. “I probably won’t be in the same district as [Heck].” Read the full article here.
