Daines Puts Politics before Veterans and Their Families
Congressman has consistently voted against critical programs for men and women in uniform, but takes credit for their services
(Helena, MT) – Though Congressman Steve Daines attended the dedication of an expanded VA clinic in Billings, he’s constantly voted against funding for programs that serve men and women in uniform and their families.
“Congressman Daines must know that when it comes to serving our veterans, you can’t just show up – you have to work hard,” said Bryan Watt, spokesperson for the Montana Democratic Party. “His work includes votes against VA clinics and against initiatives to cut the veterans compensation backlog – all while giving millionaires and corporations tax breaks."
This isn’t the first time Daines has pushed veterans aside for political gain.
