Letter: Has the senator forgotten her words?When Heidi Heitkamp ran for Senate in 2012, she ran as an independent-minded person who would stand up to President Barack Obama and the national Democrats. She said she would stand for North Dakotans. Perhaps she has forgotten what she said?
North Dakotans don’t want Obamacare; we never have. Now Sen. Heitkamp has the chance to stand up for North Dakotans by voting to completely fund the government while defunding Obamacare. Instead she will vote according to the dictates of Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., and President Obama and force a government shutdown.
