Another Day Without COVID Relief — Dishonest Daines Enjoying Month-Long Vacation
Helena, MT – Another August day goes by and where is Senator Steve Daines? Still enjoying his month-long summer break, despite failing to pass coronavirus relief and leaving key priorities for Montanans unfunded – including desperately-needed resources for the Postal Service, state and local governments, our schools, and extended unemployment benefits. Meanwhile the administration has put forward dangerous proposals, including opposing additional funding for the Postal Service, a vital resource to Montana’s veterans, tribes and rural communities, and executive orders that threaten Medicare and Social Security.
Instead of doing his job, Daines is back home trying to boost his reelection campaign.
“It’s unacceptable that Steve Daines is vacationing after failing to provide relief to his constituents who are falling upon hard times during this crisis,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Now more than ever, Montanans need an advocate working for them in the Senate, but instead Daines is busy trying to shore up his sinking campaign.”
