Helena, Mont. – U.S. Senator Steve Daines last night voted in favor of considering trillions of dollars in cuts to funding for programs that tens of thousands of Montanans rely on, including Medicare and Medicaid.

Daines joined only 21 other senators in voting for the Senate to consider a budget resolution introduced by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., that – if signed into law – would result intrillions of dollars in funding cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, transportation funding, nutrition assistance, and other vital programs. The measure was defeated on a bipartisan vote.

“Sen. Daines has shown time and time again he does not value health care for the people he represents,” said Montana Democratic Party Executive Director Monica Lindeen. “Daines’ vote to move forward on a budget proposal that would take health care away from seniors and hardworking Montanans is just more evidence Montana needs a new senator in the United States Senate.”

Daines also joined a minority of senators in voting in favor of considering similar cutsproposed last year.
