FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, July 6, 2020
Just last week, Gianforte and Daines confirmed that they still want to repeal the ACA, even in the middle of a pandemic. The ACA paved the way for Montana’s Medicaid expansion – if Daines and Gianforte had their way, 112,000 Montanans will lose their health insurance and Montanans with pre-existing conditions will once again be vulnerable to insurance company discrimination.
Although Gianforte pays lip service to Montana’s Medicaid expansion, he’s called it “a disaster” and pledged to dismantle the ACA “piece by piece.” While Daines claims to support protections for Montanans with pre-existing conditions, he has voted repeatedly to gut these very protections he claims to care about.
“It would seem to be common sense for elected leaders to want to expand health care coverage in a pandemic, not rip it away. Clearly Greg Gianforte and Steve Daines haven’t gotten that memo,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel. “Gianforte’s and Daines’ attempts to gut Montanans’ health care – in the midst of a public health emergency – are inexcusable.”
