This continues Daines’ failure to stand up for hard-working Montanans during this pandemic.
In April, Daines voted to cap unemployment insurance, but after Democrats succeeded in expanding the benefits, he was repeatedly caught dishonestly bragging about the policy he had opposed. Instead, Daines has been looking out for his big-money friends – pushing for a corporate slush fund without strong protections, and helping Republicans slip a massive tax giveaway for the wealthy into a relief package.
“Rather than delivering results, Steve Daines and his Republican colleagues are playing politics with this critical support for Montanans,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Instead of fighting for out-of-work Montanans, Daines is looking out for his corporate donors, and supporting a lawsuit that would strike down the Affordable Care Act and its protections for those with pre-existing conditions – all in the middle of an unprecedented crisis.”
