Daines’ Shameless 180 on SCOTUS Could Sabotage Montanans’ Health Care 
 
Helena, MT –  In 2016, Senator Steve Daines adamantly opposed the nomination of a new Supreme Court Justice in an election year, saying “let the people speak first.” Now, in a stunning display of hypocrisy, Daines has done a complete 180 even though he doesn’t yet know who that nominee will be.  

Daines’ blatant politicization of the court poses a devastating threat to Montanans’ health care. Just one week after election day, the Supreme Court is set to hear arguments in the case to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and health coverage protections for people with pre-existing conditions “may be doomed” if the law is overturned.

If Daines has it his way, he will rush-through a Supreme Court Justice who could side against the health care law that ensures protections for 152,000 Montanans with pre-existing conditions and provides tens of thousands of Montanans with coverage.

“With his latest head-spinning pivot, Steve Daines proves that his word means absolutely nothing – and Montanans will pay the price,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “As health care for tens of thousands of Montanans hangs in the balance, Daines is focused on achieving a shameless partisan win and looking out for his insurance industry donors.”
