these are my fights because these are my values. i'm the granddaughter of immigrants. i grew up in a working class family. i waited tables and was the first in my family to graduate from college. [applause and cheering] my experiences and my values have shaped my time in congress, and i am so proud of the work that we've achieved mplet i've been working across the aisle to get things done. i joined the problem solvers caucus and i've helped pass 50 pieces of legislation through the house. [applause] >> some of them for our veterans like the forever g.i. bill, even been signed into law. we love our veterans. and as i travel across our state, i hear stories from people, because i ask everybody this question. what keeps you up at night? and i want to tell you, over and over and over they tell me
they're worried about their healthcare. they're worried about their kids and their parents and their brothers and sisters and will they be able to have affordable healthcare? will they be able to afford their prescriptions? they're worried, my friends. we're going to talk a little bit about healthcare. my republican opponent -- [booing] >> well, dean heller i'm sure you saw me held a big press conference here last year. should have had a podium like this with -- stood at a podium kind of like this with governor sandoval and promised to o poles the republican plan to dismantle -- to oppose the republican plan to dismantle the a.c.a. yeah. you know what? he stood at a podium just like this and said he couldn't hurt hundreds of thousands of nevadans and take away their healthcare. but he went back to washington.
he got pressure from president trump, mitch mcconnell, and his billionaire donors. what did senator heller do? he caved. senator heller is guilty of the biggest broken promise in modern nevada history. guilty. he flipped and he broke his promise and he voted for that repeal. enough, heot bad chose to put his name on another repeal bill, the heller bill. ]boos >> it will cut medicaid funding and stop protection for people with pre-existing conditions. something else senator heller said he would not do. why do you think he would do it? but i you know the answer
will tell you why, because he knew his party leaders and big donors would reward him for breaking his promise to you. days after he folded on health care, mitch mcconnell super pac promise to run tens of million dollars worth of ads to get senator heller reelected. look at what you see on tv, .itch mcconnell senator heller says he wants to repeal and replace the affordable care act, i say it is time to repeal and replace dean heller. applause]d early, go out and vote we will hold senator heller accountable for everything he has been doing while he has been in washington, everything he has been doing wrong that hurts
nevadans. just a couple of facts, the fact he wrote a tax bill, giant giveaways to large corporations and ultra-wealthy ceos. the fact that his tax plan is adding nearly $2 trillion to the national debt and republicans want to try to cut social security and medicare to pay for it. [boos] we will hold them accountable to the fact that he will not support the dream act and voted twice this year against bipartisan immigration reform. [boos] we are holding him accountable, accountable to the fact that he promised to protect planned parenthood but voted not once, not twice, but 10 times to defund it. we will hold him accountable to the fact that he voted to confirm betsy devos, a threat to
our public education, all around this country. we will hold him accountable to this one big fact, the fact that he has been voting with president trump 96% of the time. [boos] seniority does not mean much if you cannot tell the president know, does it -- tell the president no, does it? senator heller told president trump everything you do turns to gold. seriously, he said that. it does not sell my can nevada senator to me, it sounds like somebody who thinks his number one job is pleasing president trump. [boos] you know who we are? we are the about of one state. -- battle born state.
[cheers and applause] and we need a fighter for nevada, not a lackey for president trump. , but it know about you know everyone around here has said what? we have had enough. nevadans have had enough. the future of our affordable care act, the future of the supreme court, all of it, every bit of it is on the line this election. all of you matter and all of you count, everything you are doing. no time is more important than right now. someone will ask you and come up to you, i looked at the college kids, one day far away from now when you are a grandparent, your grandkids will say, where were you when all of this was happening? you know what you will say, you stood up, you spoke out, and you
fight back. [cheers and applause] you, we haveof this incredible opportunity to flip this seat and take back the senate, but i need your help. i will ask everybody to do something that usually people do not do from a podium, take out your cell phones and text my , that way my 91990 campaign, we can keep in touch with you, you can know where the voting locations are, where you can get people to the polls. 1990, we need all hands on deck because early voting is happening right now and continues friday, november 2. i am not just asking you to vote, i am asking you to take your friends and neighbors with

[cheers and applause] mr. obama: we had your is -- outstanding senator here. and give it up for the woman who will be joining her in the united states senate, jacky rosen. [cheers and applause] and take ago ahead seat, i have a lot to say. [cheers and applause] all, ima: now, first of -- i miss youat
too. look, i am not alone in saying i enjoyed coming to las vegas. other americans also enjoyed coming to vegas. you can get anything you want. some things you should not want. a lot of things that are good for you. outstanding food. great shows. you name it. we brought some shows today. peppa?sn't love salt n [cheers and applause] mr. obama: i was backstage, fortunately, there were no cameras. i was jamming.
vegas is known for its hospitality. it is known for its spirit of fun. it is known for outstanding people. it is known for sunny weather. thing ie is one other vegas and all of nevada to be known for, and that is foreboding. -- that is for voting. i want this to be the capital of voting. i want one thing from you, and that is for you to vote. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: this november's election are more important than any i can remember in my lifetime and that includes when i was on the ballot. that is saying something. politicians always say this is the most important election but
this one is really that important. the stakes are high. hereonsequences of anybody not turning out and doing everything you can to get your friends and neighbors and family to turn out, the consequences of you staying home would be profoundly dangerous to this country. to our democracy. we have had challenging moments before. easy.acy has never been our founders argued about everything. we waged a civil war for freedom. we overcame a great depression. we had to fight for women's rights and workers rights and civil rights and immigrants watch and lgbt writes. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: there have been times where we went into conservative retrenchment and we had to fight that much harder for change. the good news is the trajectory
of america has been one of progress. but that progress did not happen by itself, did not happen automatically, it was made eye folks like you -- by folks like backnot by folks who sat and let history happen, it was made by ordinary americans who marched and mobilized and voted to make history happen. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: it was made by students. heading south for freedom rides. it was made by union workers deciding we will collectively bargain to have a better future. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: it was made by people who took risks and did not get their name up in lights but knew they were doing the right thing, if not for themselves of these for their children. ,very two steps forward
sometimes we have taken a step back. you win the right to create union and folks come up with new ways to bust unions. you win a higher minimum wage and congress does not raise the minimum wage for a decade. you win the right to vote, they try to take away. closerime we have gotten , a country that recognizes all people are created equal, we are all endowed with certain inning of a rights by our creator, every time we have tried to make that real, the status quo has pushed back. ,he powerful, the privileged they fight hard to keep what they got. it they like to try to -- and they like to try to divide us. because that helps them keep
power and keep their privileges. we are in one of those moments right now. we all recognize it, we did not get here overnight. the world is going through big changes come ekman -- economic changes, philosophical changes, it is challenging who we are and what we stand for and how we adapt to these new circumstances. the fact is that some of these challenges are big and tough and hard and we have not addressed all of those challenges. what happens is people get scared, and when they are -- they get scared there is\against progress. when i walked in the office 10 years ago, we were in the middle of the worst economic crisis of our lifetime, the last time the other party was in charge. interesting, is hope people notice that every time there is a pattern where
they run things into the ground and we have to come back and clean things up. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: nevada was hit as hard as any place. remembers, not everybody because some of you were really young. those of you who are older than butemember, sort of, because of the work we did, working with people like harry reid, who i love. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: we got the economy growing again, we started the longest streak of job creation and record, we covered another 20 million people on health insurance, we brought housing back here in nevada. we cut our deficit by more than half, partly by making sure the wealthiest americans, folks like me, pay their fair share of taxes.
[cheers and applause] mr. obama: by the time i left office, wages were rising, uninsurance rates were falling, poverty was falling. that is what i handed off to the next guy. when you hear all this talk about economic miracles, remember who started it. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: remember who started it. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: come on! [cheers and applause] listen, even for all reversewe did not
forty-year trends in only eight years. because republicans took over congress and decided to block everything i tried to do. everything. even the stuff they use to support. they did not support it. now, suddenly they support it again. we pull the economy out of crisis but you still have people -- once fell solidly middle-class and now felt more insecure because of technology and the loss of manufacturing jobs and globalization. all of that was still going on. that was just here in the united states, overseas we took out bin laden and we wound down the wars in iraq and afghanistan.
we got iran to halt its nuclear program. there are still threats up there and that made people nervous. with all of these challenges, a lot of folks started feeling, you know what, change does not happen fast enough. people felt nobody was looking out for them. there was all of this money being pumped into campaigns. pac'sse big billionaire who were trying to say, the democrats, they do not think like you or look like you. or believe the same things you do. we have seen that playbook before. people got cynical and republicans in power want you to feel cynical. they want you not to vote. instead of addressing the challenges, some of the history
we have in this country, racial and ethnic and malicious divisions -- religious divisions , and they try to get people angry. toy appeal to fear and try put one group against another. they tell us that order and security will be restored as long as we do not let those people take over, people who do not look like us or sound like us or pray like us. they start talking about real americans as if some of us aren't real americans. it is an old playbook. the closer we get to election day, the more we see folks resort to that. healthy democracy -- in a healthy democracy, that does not work because people of goodwill in both parties start calling out bigot and fear mongers, they
work for compromise and work to get things done, tactical solutions, caucus starts kicking in. when there is a vacuum in our democracy, when we do not vote, when we take our rights for granted, when we turn the other way because politics is ugly and messy and we do not want to hear it, that is when the voices fill in the void. promisinggues start simple fixes to complicated problems, and they promised to fight for the little guy and corporationsd help and billionaires and the most powerful. corruption take on -- they promise to take on corruption and then walk away and undermine the institution's in our democracy and make it harder for young people and minorities and the poor to vote. that entrenches their power further. will -- wherees
republicans are actively purging voter rolls right now, saying studentsents, college operate under different rules and make it harder for them to vote. that this kind of politics, this is not conservative, is radical, division that says we will protect our power no matter what , even if it hurts the country. we will divide the country and make everybody angry, even though we know that will not help create jobs or put food on the table or pay the rent or make sure health care is protected. the division where a few people who can afford high-priced lobbyists and unlimited campaign situations, and rather than be a check or a balance on this kind of corrupt politics, you have
republicans in congress who bent over backwards to shield them from scrutiny and consequences. the current senator does not seem to be willing to stand up to this, he goes along, he knows it is not right. but it is ok. that is the moment we are in. here is the good news, nevada. we have a chance to restore sanity to our politics. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: we can tip the balance of power back to you, the american people. because ultimately there is only one real check on abuses of power, only one real check on bad policy, and that is you and your vote. you. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: the great thing in
nevada, you do not have to wait two weeks. you can go ahead and vote right now. voting is early already underway. you can vote at any early voting site in your community. you do not know where that is, go to the website and find out where you can vote. there is no reason to over complicate stuff. sometimes democrats are analyzing stuff, just vote. if you do not think it is important to vote, look at what the republicans have done these past two years. look at what they're saying they're going to do if you send it back for two more. here is one simple fact, this is
some, i try to state facts. i believe in facts. [cheers and applause] i believe in a fact-based reality. and a fact-based politics. i do not believe in making stuff up. i think you should say to people what is true. here was what is true. $1.5 trillion in tax cuts aimed at billionaires and corporations. it was not done for you. $1.5 trillion.
they did not even pretend to pay for it. deficits shot up. when i was president and i was trying to fund childhood education or trying to fund infrastructure, they would say we cannot do that. the deficit is too high. it is a next essential crisis. -- existential crisis. $1.5 trillion for folks already sitting pretty, do not need it, were not asking for it, suddenly , deficits are no problem. it,ot try to pay for pretend to pay for it, except last week, the leader of the republicans in congress -- [boos[ mr. obama: don't boo, vote.
booing does not help, voting helps. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: voting helps. voting helps. hashtag, all of that stuff is nice to do, vote. says,ow, mitch mcconnell theenly now that he is fast $1.5 trillion, he says these deficits are a really big problem. you need to pay attention to this. to bring them down, we will have to cut programs like medicare, and medicaid, and social
security. i want everybody to understand if you do not think voting matters. if you did not vote or folks you know did not vote, they win. they give $1.5 trillion to people who do not need it, not , toing people, not families folks who are sitting pretty. , nowthen come back and say that we just than $1.5 trillion, we need to figure out -- now that we just spent $1.5 trillion, we need to figure out how to make it up by cutting programs that working families rely on. it is a pretty straightforward equation. we should not be confused about this. i do not know how much simpler it could be. if you believe that folks like
folks likeax cut and your grandmother needs a cut in her social security, you are right, you should sit home and not vote. if, on the other hand, you think that is a bad idea, and you say to yourself, obama is doing pretty good, all of these corporations are doing pretty good, but grandma needs to be sure she can keep paying rent, so you have to vote. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: i cannot make this any simpler. these same republicans voted to take health care away. that is a reflex for them, they cannot help themselves. every year, 60 something times they have tried to take it away. now that it is election season, they are saying, actually, we
will protect people with pre-existing conditions, even though we will cut health care. let me say something as the person who passed the law. people withs pre-existing conditions from being discriminated against, i they had no that way of protecting pre-existing conditions with anything they have proposed. they are just making it up. , harry reid and we made itemocrats, illegal for insurance companies to discriminate because you have a pre-existing condition like asthma. if you are a woman, your insurance rates were higher just because you were a woman. we said you cannot do that.
that was called the affordable care act. and republicans have tried to undermine it and sabotage it and repeal it dozens of times. when all the chips were on the table, health care was at stake jacky rosen',s opponent was in on those votes. if republicans keep congress, you better believe they are coming after health care again. and millions of people across the country who count on this will not have it. even republicans, they just do not know it. it is true. there are states where hundreds of thousands of people are really benefiting from obamacare , they just do not call that obamacare, which is fine. i didn't make up the name. called, care what it is but i do care about those folks
having health care. i know you can bet on anything in vegas. bet thedo not want to republicans will protect your health. you do not want to bet they will youerve the law that says cannot discriminate against people because of a pre-existing condition. that is a bad beat -- that is a bad bet. that will not work. letting theing -- foxes into the henhouse. jacky rosen is a good bet. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: jacky rosen believes that health care is not a privilege for the few but a right for everybody. you send her to the u.s. senate let republicans stop projections for people with pre-existing conditions.
you can count on that. she will not let republicans got medicare to pay for the -- gut medicare to pay for tax cuts. all of the democrats will fight for any attempt -- will fight any attempt to will that covered for you and your family, which is why you have to vote. these folks have a track record. they, like other democrats, believe a growing economy should benefit everybody, not just a few at the top. instead of continuing to have republicans attacked unions, we need somebody who will stand up for workers rights to organize for higher wages and stronger benefits. [cheers and applause] mr. obama: rather than side with the biggest banks and the for-profit colleges, we need people to invest in public schools and health more nevada student -- help more nevada
and haveattend unlv higher education without going broke. we have to give it some people who may not agree with democrats on every issue. vote with these candidates on the issues they should care about. people of both parties and no party should be concerned with this current situation. see ashould want to restoration of honesty and lawfulness to our government. they should want to see some checks on what is happening. it is not a democratic or republican idea that we are not supposed to pressure the attorney general or the fbi to use the criminal justice system to try to punish political
opponents. that is not how america works. that is how a dictatorship works , that is not supposed to be america. it should not be democratic or republican to say we do not threaten freedom of the press just because they publish stories we do not like to it should not be democratic republicans who say we do not target a certain group based on what they look like. there are fiscal conservatives who, i am assuming have to believe there is nothing fiscally responsible about trillion dollar deficits. i am assuming there is compassionate republicans who say there is nothing american about ripping immigrant children from their mothers. [boos] mr. obama: don't boo, vote.
if you help us take basket -- take back congress, nevada, we can make the progress that is needed. that is the bottom line. this is not just about one person in the white house. congress and the governor's and state legislative races. america is notn just in one person. being it took was president, i would've solved everything. it turns out you are congress, governors, so we have to vote everywhere, up and down the ballot. when you vote, good things happen. , you have the power to make sure we strengthen laws and protect women in the workplace from harassment and discrimination.
we have the power to make sure they are paid equally. when you vote, you have the power to make it easier for a student to afford college, harder for a person to shoot up a classroom. when you vote, you have the power to make sure a family keeps its health insurance. you can save somebody's life. that power is in your hands. yes you can. i want to talk about young people in particular here. for a moment. have twobecause, i young people. , they are thea loves of my life.
i have to tell them your generation will determine the direction of america for the next 50, 60, 70 years. right now, too many young people do not vote. midterm, one out of every four young people voted. who were eligible. three out of four eligible did not turn out. that makes no sense. it,elle and i joke about for the young people, you would not let your grandmother decide what you should wear. [laughter] [applause] mr. obama: you would not allow your parents to decide what is on your playlist.
if you are very protective about those choices, why wouldn't you be protective about your power to choose whether or not we do something about climate change, which will have an impact on you. electuldn't you choose to representatives who reflect our values and will do something ,bout criminal justice reform if that is something you care about? [applause] mr. obama: you cannot just give your power away. it.have to exercise the good news is i am hopeful because i am starting to see out of the political darkness right now, a great way -- a great awakening around the country. i cannot tell you how encouraged i have been watching so many
people getting involved or the first time. they are with clipboards organizing a marching and knocking on doors and making phone calls. some of them are starting to run for office. people who have never been interested in politics say, this time i have to get involved. we have a movement of citizens out there, including record numbers of women. [cheers and applause] likeacky -- women women like jacky and kate, and you could be the first day to elect a state legislature where the majority are women -- the first state to elect -- to elect a state legislature when the majority are women. [applause] mr. obama: i am pretty sure things will work better if you
give women a chance to run things for a while. but you have to vote. [cheers and applause] you have an important ballot initiative to vote for in nevada, automatic voter registration is on the ballot. you vote yes on 5 and every eligible voter who applies for a id or driver's license in nevada automatically get registered to vote. when more people vote, good things happen. i know people have been feeling anxious these days. people get frustrated and angry at folks come up to me and say, what are we going to do? [laughter] mr. obama: what about michelle? [cheers and applause]
mr. obama: michelle, she is not running for president. but she is telling you to vote your -- that he is telling you to vote -- but she is telling you to vote. antidote to everything you do not like is you voting. that is what this moment is about. one election will not fix everything. but it will be a start. eliminateon will not poverty in america. more all theive seas that help poor people a chance -- more policies that help poor people a chance. one policy will not solve all racial discrimination.
but if you have elected officials who care about that, things can get better. election is not going to solve climate change. but if you have candidates and governors who believe in solar power and wind power and the job creation that come from that and are willing to invest in clean energy, things get better. thisd to have to explain because people say we do not get everything. but it will be better. better is really good. better is how we make progress. you have to start it right here in this election. and every day thereafter, things keep getting better. doeshreat to our democracy not come from one person in the white house will republicans in congress, or big-money lobbyists , the biggest threat to our
democracy is in difference. -- is in difference. the biggest threat is those who stay home because they think their voice is not matter. because 10 people extra in every precinct voted, i won tate -- estate because about. same number of people in the last election who could fit in a football stadium sway the entire election. if you do not like what is going on right now, and you shouldn't, do not complain, do not get anxious, do not throw up your hands, do not boo, vote. when you vote, not just for these candidates, up and down for mayors, sheriffs, district
attorney, you have the power to make sure our voting rights are protected and our criminal justice system treats everybody equally under the law. vote, you protect reamers and keep families together. and we can finally pass sensible immigration reform that secures our border and strengthens all of us. when you vote, you have the power to make sure we strengthen laws that protect women. and give my daughters and your daughters the same chances as everybody's son's. the you vote, you have difference to make, not just for this country but around the world, your voice. i am hoping you make the right call. i am hoping you tell your friends and your neighbors, you
knock on doors and tell friends, you argue with family members and convince new voters, tell ,hem to get out to vote early and when that happens, something powerful will happen when you start voting, when you are activated, hope happens, and we , wen -- with each new step moved in the direction of fairness and justice and equality and opportunity and hope spreads. let's get to work. let's go vote. let's make sure jacky is your next senator. sure that you have a governor who cares about you. [applause] mr. obama: let's make sure you have a congress that represent your values. let's get out there, nevada, i am putting my money on you.
