New ad, “Why,” slams Sen. Daines for siding with special interest groups over the health of Montanans

Billings, MT — Today, Planned Parenthood Votes launched a new ad as part of a six-figure digital investment hitting Senator Steve Daines for jeopardizing the health care of over 420,000 Montanans. By constantly siding with the insurance industry that has given him over $350,000 instead of Montanans with pre-existing conditions such as cancer and pregnancy, Daines has proven he cannot be trusted to do what’s best for Montana.

The new advertisement, “Why,” shows the distinct contrast on health care between Daines and Steve Bullock, who has a record of expanding health care coverage for 90,000 Montanans and fighting for reproductive rights.

Watch "Why" 



Statement from Laura Terrill, Planned Parenthood Votes’ Montana spokesperson:

“Steve Daines is willing to sell out the health and well being of Montanans to the insurance industry. Instead of fighting to expand access to health care, which is even more important now during a pandemic, Daines repeatedly voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, jeopardizing care for hundreds of thousands of Montanans with pre-existing conditions like asthma, pregnancy, diabetes and more. While Daines was working to take away our health care, Gov. Bullock was expanding health coverage to more than 90,000 Montanans. Steve Bullock is the health care champion that Montanans deserve.”

This new ad is a part of Planned Parenthood Votes “We Decide 2020” electoral program. “We Decide 2020” is Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations’ largest electoral program ever - with a historic investment of at least $45 million in key battleground states during the 2020 cycle. Last month, Planned Parenthood Votes launched its electoral program in Montana, where it will support Planned Parenthood Action Fund-endorsed candidates Governor Steve Bullock and Kathleen Williams.


Why is Steve Daines attacking our health care?

Why is he fighting to let insurance companies remove protections for more than 420,000 Montanans with pre-existing conditions like cancer, diabetes, asthma, and pregnancy, even in the middle of a pandemic?

Maybe it’s because Daines has taken more than $350,000 from the insurance industry.

As Governor, Steve Bullock expanded health care coverage to more than 90,000 Montanans.  

That’s the type of health care champion we need.

Vote Steve Bullock for Senate.
