This continues Daines’ pattern of undermining vital programs that Montana seniors rely on.
Daines has voted against expanding Social Security benefits and has supported legislation that threatens Medicare funding. Adding insult to injury, Daines championed tax giveaways that disproportionately benefited massive corporations and the ultra-wealthy, while his party threatened to pay for them by cutting funding for Social Security and Medicare.
“If Steve Daines and his Republican allies have it their way, funding for Social Security could be completely depleted just three years from now,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Despite the ongoing pandemic disproportionately affecting our seniors, Daines is trying to undermine their lifeline when they need it most.”
