Sen. Dean Heller is one among five conservative Republicans who presently oppose the Senate’s Obamacare replacement bill, joining Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas), Mike Lee (Utah), Rand Paul (Ky.) and Ron Johnson (Wis.).
With that, a feminist group had a small plane on Monday toting a banner emblazoned with a loud-and-clear message to the Nevada senator: “Sen. Heller: Keep Your Word Vote No On Trumpcare.”
The plane was not flying over Nevada, but above Charleston, West Virginia — not exactly Heller country.
That state’s Republican senator — Shelley Moore Capito — has not yet indicated opposition to Trumpcare.
Feminist group UltraViolet was behind the banner, the Washington Examiner reported.
Small problem: Sen. Dean Heller is from Nevada (NV), not West Virginia (WV). It’s pretty unlikely that he, or any of his constituents, will see the plane.
Heller announced last week that he is opposed to the new healthcare bill, joining his colleagues Sens. Paul, Cruz, Lee, and Johnson in opposition. One of the members of the Senate who has not stated her opposition to the healthcare bill is Sen. Shelly Moore Capito (R-WV).
I mean, I guess “NV” and “WV” look similar enough…if a person squints. Good effort?
