Republican gets religion
The U.S. House voted March 10 to kill the Federal Housing Administration Refinance Program, a foreclosure-assistance program. The only Republican to vote with Democrats against snuffing the bill was Rep. Joe Heck of Nevada.
H.R. 830 was approved 256-171. Eighteen Democrats joined the Republicans.
Nevada has the highest foreclosure rate in the nation, and Heck’s own House district has the highest foreclosure rate in the state.
