Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) initially said he opposed the Senate’s Obamacare repeal efforts, voted for it anyway — and now claims he’s glad it was defeated.
In a video published by liberal super PAC American Bridge, Heller claims he’s happy with the outcome of the bill’s defeat — glossing over the fact that he voted for the bill himself.
“I obviously got in the middle of this healthcare battle,” Heller said, “and I feel real pleased with the way this thing turned out.”
He concluded the short statement by saying, with a smile, that Republicans are now “turning the page to tax reform.”
