After almost 10 months with no major accomplishments besides multiple failed attempts to destroy the health care system, Senator Steve Daines and Congressman Greg Gianforte are desperate. In interviews over the past week, each acknowledged that if their tax proposal is not passed into law by the end of the year, they should be held responsible for Washington’s lack of action on the most important issues facing Montana.
Today, Montana Democratic Party Executive Director Nancy Keenan released the following statement on Senator Steve Daines’ vote to cut almost $500 billion from Medicare and increase the budget deficit by $1.5 trillion:
Karen Marshall, Vice President of Programs for the Gallatin County Republican Women and friend of Congressman Greg Gianforte, called into the radio program Voices of Montana yesterday to share some thoughts on Gianforte’s assault of Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs: the “media reporter at Greg’s barbeque, I was there. I’m a friend of Greg’s. If that kid had done to me what he did to Greg, I would have shot him.”
Russell Fagg’s campaign slogan is “Jobs First, Montana Always,” which, let’s be real, is pretty hypocritical, considering he left to run for higher office instead of finishing the job Montanans elected him to – costing taxpayer money to replace him.
