Retirees set to protest Heck’s Social Security stance, Medicare in Henderson


LAS VEGAS — A group of retirees is planning to protest Congressman Joe Heck’s stance on Social Security and Medicare outside of a private event he’s set to attend in Henderson.

Officers with the Nevada Alliance for Retired Americans say they’ll rally outside the Revere Golf Club on Tuesday morning.

NARA Vice President Dick Collins says he has a problem with the Republican lawmaker’s record on health care reform, veterans’ benefits, women’s issues and more.

The chapter has previously protested outside of an event Heck attended, although it has not officially endorsed a candidate in Heck’s 3rd Congressional District.

Heck is running against Democrat Erin Bilbray.
