By fudging the facts, Dishonest Daines hopes Montanans will forget about his years of prioritizing the wealthy and special interests over hard-working families.
Shot: Daines claims his first priority is “focused on taking care of Montanans.”
Chaser: Even in the midst of a global public health crisis, Daines is still committed to repealing the Affordable Care Act, which would end Medicaid expansion — threatening health coverage for more than 80,000 Montanans — jeopardize thousands of jobs, reduce access to mental health and substance use disorder treatments, and devastate rural hospitals.
Shot: Daines touted a provision in the latest coronavirus relief bill to speed up drug development to fight COVID-19.
Chaser: After Congress passed the provision Daines references, PACs for pharmaceutical companies including Merck, Pfizer and Sanofi contributed roughly $16,000 to Dishonest Daines. For years, Daines has been raking in campaign contributions from Big Pharma, taking $159,000 during his time in Congress.
