Sen. Heidi Heitkamp was not elected for the D behind her name. With the current state of politics in North Dakota it could be said that she was elected despite that D.
Heitkamp was hired for her name. She was hired because her name was synonymous with putting North Dakota residents above politics. She has continued to vote against repealing the failing Affordable Care Act. She has reiterated her stance to keep the ACA and to try to fix this broken system with its skyrocketing premiums. This road leads to a single-payer system. This is not good for the majority of North Dakotans.
The ACA is not good for the majority of North Dakotans. Please, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, forget the D behind your name and remember what your name used to stand for. Remember that you were hired to represent the majority of people in North Dakota.
