Statement on Congressman Heck Voting for Default

Las Vegas, NVNevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Zach Hudson released the following statement after Congressman Heck voted for the United States to default on its loans and obligations:

“We’d suggest Congressman Heck saw Sharron Angle’s shadow when he voted today for default, but unfortunately he was voting for dysfunction and gridlock long before Angle talked about running against him.  Make no mistake – if Congressman Heck had has his way then the United States would default, countless jobs would be lost and the United States economy would crater.  Congressman Heck once again demonstrated today that he puts dysfunction and his narrow conservative ideology ahead of Nevada working families.”
