NEW VIDEO: MDP Holds Senator Daines Accountable for Dangerous Health Care Sabotage 
Helena, MT – Today, the Montana Democratic Party released a new video which holds Senator Steve Daines accountable for repeatedly voting to gut Montanans’ health care and protections for those with pre-existing conditions. The video highlights Daines’ complicity in the Republican lawsuit which would overturn the Affordable Care Act and eliminate protections for people with pre-existing conditions in the midst of a global pandemic. 

Daines has repeatedly voted to undermine protections for people with pre-existing conditions – including voting for a bill to repeal the ACA in 2017 that Montana nurses, physicians and hospital officials opposed – and to expand “junk” insurance plans which are not required to cover pre-existing conditions. Daines also voted for the tax law which prompted the Republican lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act and eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions. 
 
“During the worst health crisis Montanans have seen in a lifetime, Steve Daines remains committed to sabotaging life-saving protections for Montanans with pre-existing conditions,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Time and time again, Daines chooses to play politics with our health care instead of protecting it.”
