Dean Heller Doesn't Have a Clue on Health Care

Jul 21, 2017

Dean Heller’s spent this week doing his best impersonation of a Magic 8 Ball, refusing to discuss Nevadans’ health care with reporters and giving meaningless answers when cornered.
Yesterday, in a bizarre interview with AxiosHeller couldn’t give a clear answer to seven questions in a row about Trumpcare:
  • Where do you stand? “I don’t have an answer.”
  • What about premiums? “That’s one of the variables.”
  • Would higher premiums be bad? “Well, you know, all the scoring and everything.”
  • What if Nevadans lose coverage? “I’m not going to talk about that.”
  • What would you tell Nevadans? “It just depends on the individual.”
  • Is Gov. Sandoval a factor in your decision? “Everything’s a factor.”
  • You sound pretty flexible. “I hope so.”
“It sounds like Dean Heller’s replaced his usual word salad with a Magic 8 Ball — that’s how terrified he is of taking a stand against Donald Trump and the Senate’s health care bill. Heller isn’t fighting for Nevadans’ health care — he’s fighting to save his political skin. Unfortunately for him, his ham-handed attempt to sit on the fence while Trumpcare lurches toward passage is transparent to everyone, and Nevadans will hold him accountable next November,” said American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp.
