Today I read an invitation from Congressmen Joe Heck explaining how we need to support his campaign for re-election. In it he stated “We need more Republicans in Washington“.
Our District 3 Representative is concerned with how “Washington operates” since he was elected to office last year as Democrats continue to spend our tax dollars with little regard where it is going and how it is being spent.
Toward the last paragraph of the campaign letter he emphasized a career politician will run against him in the upcoming election with a “History of raising taxes, increasing regulations and growing government” which makes the choice clear why we must vote for Joe Heck.
As I read I had to look back just a few short months ago on the vote to raise the debt ceiling on more time or our country will default on its debts. Our Congressmen Joe Heck voted for it, stating to his constituents in a RJ interview, “The fact we have dollar-for-dollar spending cuts associated with the debt limit increase, no new taxes and real accountability measures were the three things I wanted to see, and those three things are there,”
This appears to be more of the same, campaign against raising taxes, doing what is right for the country and then caving in to an increase in our debt ceiling with nothing but empty promises as we have seen in all debt ceiling increased negotiations.
Joe, if you want to win re-election how about telling those Nevadans in your District you will reduce spending in Washington and then offer a solution to how you plan to accomplish that task. The debt ceiling is not the issue, the spending is.
