You might have heard that Montana’s millionaire Congressman Dennis Rehberg was pushing an irresponsible earmark to strip protections for the safety of candy, the blood supply, and more.
But this isn’t the first attack on Montana’s health Congressman Rehberg has launched this year – he’s already tried to take Medicare away from thousands of Montana seniors.
Now, Montanans are holding Congressman Rehberg accountable for his votes against a healthy Montana. In case you missed it, here’s a great commentary from a writer to the Missoulian:
Medicare: Rehberg not representing state
Rep. Denny Rehberg once again has proved he is out of touch with many Montanans by supporting Rep. Paul Ryan's budget when he voted for the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act. Among many things, Ryan's budget calls for the end of Medicare.
It's all fine and dandy for Rehberg with all his millions and government health insurance, but what about those of us who aren't so fortunate?
I haven't had health insurance for over 10 years. In a few years I will be 65 and eligible for Medicare. Meanwhile, my "representative" is working to eliminate it!
Like the original Boston Tea Party folks, I oppose taxation without representation. I pay taxes, but on this and many other issues, I am not represented in Congress by Rehberg.
