Steve Daines: 4 Attempts to Skirt Press Questions, 4 Votes to Gut Protections for Pre-Existing Conditions
 
Helena, MT – Yesterday, Senator Steve Daines’ campaign “refused four separate requests for a comment” on reports that President Trump purposely downplayed the threat of the coronavirus despite knowing the virus was “more deadly than even your strenuous flus.” These revelations come as Daines has given nothing but glowing reviews of Trump’s botched handling of this crisis, saying “I applaud the president”, that he was “grateful for his leadership” and that “President Trump has led boldly.”

Daines skirted around questions from the press four different times – the same number of times he voted to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

Daines has voted repeatedly to let insurance companies deny healthcare for those with pre-existing conditions like cancer, diabetes, and asthma. Despite the ongoing global public health crisis, Daines supports a partisan lawsuit that would end these same healthcare protections, even with the additional risks the coronavirus poses to those with pre-existing conditions.

“From ignoring tough questions to stay in the good graces of his party bosses to voting to gut health care coverage protections to appease his insurance industry donors, Daines shows he’s just out for himself, not hard-working for Montanans,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes.
