Daines Stands By as Trump Declares War on Social Security and Medicare

Helena, MT – This weekend, President Trump announced new executive actions that could gut funding for Social Security and Medicare in the middle of an ongoing global pandemic. As days go by, Senator Steve Daines has shown he’s still willing to stand by these cruel new cuts. 
 
This continues Daines’ pattern of undermining these programs which serve as a vital lifeline for seniors. 
 
Daines has voted against expanding Social Security benefits and has supported legislation that threatens Medicare funding. Adding insult to injury, Daines championed tax cuts that disproportionately benefited massive corporations and the ultra-wealthy, while his party threatened to pay for them by cutting funding for Social Security and Medicare. 
 
“Even during a public health crisis which is greatly affecting seniors, Steve Daines is refusing to fight for them, choosing instead to fall in line behind Republican leaders,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Come November, Montanans will send Daines packing, and replace him with Steve Bullock, a proven leader who will always protect Medicare and Social Security.”
