AARP Slams Daines-Backed Proposal Which Jeopardizes Social Security 
Helena, MT – Today, the AARP slammed President Trump’s order to suspend the payroll roll tax, citing the “uncertainty among older Americans and the general public about Social Security and its ability to pay promised benefits.” Daines has been a vocal proponent of this executive order despite the devastating implications it could have on vital programs Montana’s seniors rely on. 

This isn’t the first time Daines has undermined a crucial lifeline for Montana’s seniors

During his time in Washington, D.C., Daines has voted against expanding Social Security benefits and in favor of cutting hundreds of billions of dollars in Medicare funding. In addition, Daines championed enormous tax giveaways which overwhelmingly benefited massive corporations and the ultra-wealthy, while his party threatened to pay for them by cutting funding for Social Security and Medicare. 
 
“It’s shameful that Steve Daines is advocating for policies that  undermine a lifeline for seniors when they need it most,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Instead, Daines has been busy looking out for the ultra-wealthy and his corporate donors rather than Montana’s seniors. We know who he is really fighting for.”
