Last year, Daines voted to strike a proposal which would have penalized pharmaceutical companies who raise drug prices above the rate of the inflation. While serving on the Senate Finance Committee, Daines and his Republican colleagues rejected a proposal to allow Medicare to negotiate the price of medication. Daines also voted for a tax plan that further enriched Big Pharma, while blowing up the deficit.
While opposing measures to bring down drug prices for the people of the Big Sky Country, Daines pocketed campaign contributions from Big Pharma, taking $159,000 during his time in Congress.
“With this record, we won’t hold our breath to see if Steve Daines stands up to Big Pharma as they jack up drug prices during a public health crisis,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Montanans deserve a Senator who delivers real results for them, not pharmaceutical executives.”
