Daines’ comments stand in stark contrast to his stance four years ago when he said, “let the people speak first” because their voices should be “reflected in a process that will have lasting implications on our nation.”
Now that a Republican occupies the White House, Daines has undergone a dramatic change of heart – one that has enormous implications for Montanans. The Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments for the lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act on November 10, and 152,000 Montanans with pre-existing conditions stand to lose coverage protections if the court overturns the law.
“In 2016, Steve Daines made clear that no President should fill a Supreme Court vacancy in an election year, and that the American people should have a say,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Daines’ head-spinning change of tune is a shameful example of hypocrisy and embodies Daines’ pattern of putting himself before Montanans.”
