“[Daines] supports the fight to expand access to quality health care across Montana.”
REALITY CHECK: Daines has voted repeatedly to repeal and sabotage the Affordable Care Act and supports a partisan lawsuit to overturn the law, which could rip away health coverage from 112,000 Montanans if successful. Additionally, Daines has voted repeatedly to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and voted to expand “junk” insurance plans which are not required to cover pre-existing conditions.
[Daines] will ensure “rural communities get the care they need.”
REALITY CHECK: Daines has worked relentlessly to gut the Affordable Care Act, the law that paved the way for Medicaid expansion which covers more than 80,000 Montanans and serves as a crucial lifeline to keep rural hospitals afloat. Since Governor Bullock passed Medicaid expansion, not a single rural hospital has closed.
Daines, a fighter for health care access? His record tells the real story.
