What the Heck is He Talking About?  Joe Heck Flip Flops on Health Bill Repeal

Just a few days ago, on March 20, Joe Heck said in a press release posted on his web site:

“You have my word that when I'm in Congress I will do everything possible to repeal this horrible bill…”

 

Then last night, in an appearance on ‘Face to Face,’ Joe Heck switched positions and told host Jon Ralston:

“Well, Jon, I don’t think you’ve ever heard me say let’s repeal the whole bill…”

“Why does Joe Heck have such a hard time being straight with Nevada voters?  After following his national Republican backers instructions to call for repealing the health insurance reform bill before it even passed, now Heck claims he never said it,” said Andy Stone, Western Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.  “Nevadans deserve better than a blatant flip flop like that.”
