Rather than delivering results for Montanans, Steve Daines is choosing instead to play politics.
All throughout the COVID-19 crisis, Daines has let Montanans down. In April, Daines voted to cap unemployment insurance, but after Democrats succeeded in expanding the benefits, he was repeatedly caught dishonestly bragging about the policy he had opposed. Instead, Daines has been looking out for his big-business allies – pushing for a corporate slush fund without strong protections, and helping Republicans slip a massive tax giveaway for the wealthy into a relief package.
“While Daines is taking a weekend off, thousands of Montanans are struggling to figure out how to pay their bills,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Daines is showing yet again that he’d rather fall in line behind Mitch McConnell than do what’s right for people here in Montana.”
