Gianforte and Daines Support Attacks on Montanans with Pre-Existing Conditions
Helena, MT – The Trump administration’s proposed budget, released last week, continues to fund the Trump DOJ’s attacks on affordable health coverage and protections for Montanans with pre-existing conditions.
With 152,000 Montanans with pre-existing conditions at risk of losing coverage, Greg Gianforte and Steve Daines’s continued silence on the Administration’s lawsuit aimed at ripping away healthcare from millions of Americans is totally disqualifying — and it’s nothing new. Gianforte has voted against protecting patients with pre-existing conditions and lowering the cost of prescription drugs. Daines supported rolling back protections for patients with pre-existing conditions in the infamous Graham-Cassidy ACA repeal bill.
“Montanans are tired of empty words from empty shirts like Greg Gianforte and Steve Daines,” said MDP Executive Director Sandi Luckey. “These guys tell Montanans they’ll fight for them during election season, then turn around and support attacks on their healthcare as soon as they get to Washington. Montana’s working families demand more from their elected representatives — Gianforte and Daines are going to find themselves looking for jobs come November.”
