Daines, Gianforte Stand With Partisan Lawsuit to Gut Health Care Access As Supreme Court Sets Oral Arguments
 
Helena, MT – Yesterday, the Supreme Court announced it will hear oral arguments for the partisan lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act the week after the November election. Despite the ongoing public health crisis, Senator Steve Daines and Congressman Greg Gianforte support repealing the ACA and this cruel lawsuit to eliminate health care coverage for thousands of Montanans. 

If Daines and Gianforte have it their way and this lawsuit succeeds,

  • 152,000 Montanans with pre-existing conditions will be vulnerable again to insurance company discrimination;
  • Medicaid expansion, which covers more than 80,000 Montanans, serves as a vital lifeline to rural hospitals, and has expanded access to mental health and substance abuse treatments, will be at risk.

“Steve Daines and Greg Gianforte’s cruel agenda to rip Montanans’ health care coverage from them knows no bounds,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Yesterday’s  announcement from the Supreme Court is a stark reminder that the stakes of this election couldn’t be higher – Montanans’ health and well-being are on the line.”
