Montana Democrats' Statement on the Failed Passage of the Senate Health Care Bill
Today, Montana Democratic Party Executive Director Nancy Keenan released the following statement regarding the failed passage of the Senate health care bill:
"Steve Daines has proven once and for all that he cares more about helping Washington special interests than improving the wellbeing of Montana families. Daines voted to pass a legislative abomination that is the product of one of the most disgraceful congressional processes in American history. This bill would have hurt tens of thousands of Montanans, and Steve Daines knew it. We will hold him accountable for his actions.
"Last night, the partisanship of the Senate majority was too much, even for Washington. Democrats, under the leadership of Jon Tester and Steve Bullock, will keep fighting for working families and for bipartisan solutions that allow all Montanans to access comprehensive, affordable health care."
