BACKLASH: Media Calls Out Heller For Election Year Attempt To Mask True Beliefs on Medicare, Big Oil
Face to Face Dana Gentry: "Senator Dean Heller has long opposed cutting subsidies and tax breaks for big oil companies. Now he’s in a race to retain a senate seat to which he was appointed and he’s changing his tune…”
KSNV's Hugh Jackson: "It's hard to see how voters can trust what Heller says either way.”
Las Vegas Sun's Anjeanette Damon: "Surprising”
Las Vegas, NV – The backlash continues. Last night, Las Vegas Sun columnist Jon Ralston called out Sen. Dean Heller for his election year attempt to paper over his true, long-held pro-Wall Street beliefs.
But it didn’t end there. Sen. Heller is facing media blowback for trying to paper over his support for ending Medicare by turning it over to private insurance companies and protecting taxpayer giveaways to Big Oil.
Two weeks ago, Heller tried to hide his longtime record of voting 9 times to protect subsidies for the oil industry by offering an amendment doing the exact opposite. Then last week, Heller told the Las Vegas Sun he was undecided on the 2012 Ryan budget despite saying last year that he said he was “proud” to vote for – twice.
As the video shows below, media outlets across Nevada are seeing right through Heller’s blatant attempt to paper over his long career of siding with Wall Street at the expense of Nevada’s middle-class families.
He must be finally realizing his actual views are deeply unpopular with Nevada’s voters.
