Daines, Gianforte Still Support Gutting Health Care Protections for Montanans 
152,000 Montanans with Pre-Exisiting Conditions Stand to Become Vulnerable to Insurance Company Discrimination 
 
Helena, MT –  Last week, Senator Steve Daines and Congressman Greg Gianforte made clear they are still dead-set on gutting Montanans’ access to quality, affordable health care. When asked if they support the partisan lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act, both Daines and Gianforte expressed support for repealing the law which serves as a lifeline for thousands of Montanans – while also claiming that they’d like to preserve protections for pre-existing conditions. 

This phony lip-service in support of key protections for people with pre-existing conditions comes after Daines has voted repeatedly to gut these very protections he claims to care about. Gianforte has pledged to dismantle the ACA “piece by piece,” and voted against directing the House of Representatives’ counsel to oppose the Republican lawsuit. 

If Daines and Gianforte had it their way: 

“Make no mistake: Daines and Gianforte are committed to sabotaging Montanans’ health care protections in the midst of a global public health crisis,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Montanans deserve representatives who care about protecting their health care access, not ones trying to gut it.”
