Montana doesn't need Daines

I don’t believe most Montana people want an extremist like Daines. He used his outside Montana money to pay for a pop-up on my computer (I hate those pop-ups), saying he would “protect” me from Obamacare. He is saying he is going to take away the protection I have now against insurance companies using previous conditions to deny my coverage. Stop students from getting coverage until they are 26. Take away the caps on medical bills so insurance companies can bankrupt people again. Bankruptcies for medical bills are completely gone with Obamacare. He will make my drug costs go back up. Costs for my eye medicine went from $50 down to $12 under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). He will take insurance from millions of people who can finally get affordable coverage and leave them with nothing. I know this is true because he voted more than 50 times to take these protections away from people. No! We don’t need a Ted Cruz do-nothing, protect-the-corporations, vote-against-the-middle-class, shut-the-government-down, right-wing extremist like that in Montana.

Daines, like so many others in this do-nothing Congress, is a pawn of the corporations, specifically the Koch brothers (Americans for Prosperity). Check his record. He votes with them every time. They vote no taxes for the very rich and then attack Social Security and Medicare. Their agenda is to make themselves richer and the middle class poorer — increase the gap between the middle class and super rich. And they bought Daines.
