A few moments ago, Daines voted for a pared-down, partisan relief bill in a shameless attempt for political cover. However, the reality is that Daines and his colleagues have put off relief negotiations for months. Daines has even said that there won’t be more COVID relief before Election Day. Instead he has a laser-like focus on rushing through a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, which could devastate Montanans’ health care access.
Just one week after election day, the Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments in the case to overturn the Affordable Care Act. If this law is gutted, 112,000 Montanans stand to lose their coverage and 152,000 Montanans with pre-existing conditions could become vulnerable again to insurance company discrimination.
“In the midst of an unprecedented crisis, Steve Daines is busy engaging in a partisan food fight instead of working to secure desperately-needed relief for Montanans,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Come November, Montanans will elect a new senator in Steve Bullock who has a proven record of working with Republicans to get things done – unlike Daines who just toes the party line.”
