Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington recently published a study of how members of the House of Representatives use their positions to benefit themselves and their families. Rep. Berkley and Rep. Joe Heck are both named in that report. We're joined by CREW Executive Director, Melanie Sloan about how many members of Congress use their positions to benefit themselves and their families.
Nevada Representative Joe Heck has introduced a new bill in congress that would give homeowners who have gone through foreclosure a second chance at buying a house. Heck's Second Chance at Homeownership Act would provide insured loans to individuals who have previously been foreclosed. Rep Joe Heck joins us to talk about his plan to give some Nevadans a second chance at home ownership.
Freshman representative Joe Heck is gaining his bearings in his new office. We talk to him about the first days on the job, his role on the House's steering committee, his thoughts on healthcare, and his plans to reinvigorate our region.
It's been called perhaps the most important race in the 2010 midterm elections. The race between Democratic incumbent, Dina Titus and Republican challenger, Joe Heck in Nevada's third congressional district. How will Dina Titus overcome the anti-incumbent mood sweeping the country? And in a district where undecided voters are key, what are the strategies for winning those votes? Dina Titus joins us to discuss the campaign issues in the final days of the 2010 midterm elections.
Plenty of local Nevadans said they need more time to find a job. But critics say that only encourages laziness. What do you think? Are you unemployed? Do you think we should extend jobless pay... or is it better to stop it?
Rep. Dina Titus is back from Capitol Hill and takes your questions this Friday at 9 a.m. Call 258-3552 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
