Voters should not put up with Daines’ doublespeak
Steve Daines’ habit of promising one thing to Montanans, then voting differently in D.C., is tiresome. Daines repeatedly placates moderates while voting with his extreme base. Hopefully Montanans are catching onto his routine lies and hold him accountable for how he votes rather than what he says.
A blatant example is his ad expressing strong support for health care insurance for Montanans while failing to mention Daines long-standing efforts in gutting the Affordable Care Act, stripping away health care for hundreds of thousands of Montanans with pre-existing conditions.
Daines says he favors protecting your health care, your public lands and your public education—the reality is Daines doesn’t stand for these essential Montanan values at all. Daines lies and tries to continuously take credit for the hard work of our other senator.
Montanans should not put up with Daines’ doublespeak any longer. Cast your vote in November for your health care. For your public lands. For public education.
Vote Bullock, who has tirelessly fought for protecting Montanans with preexisting conditions, Medicaid expansion, education and public lands. You may prefer Daines for the way he votes but do
not be deceived by what he says.
Trump joining list of dictators with secret police
Juan Peron, Saddam Hussein, and Shah Reza Pahlavi all had their secret police. Now we do, too. They arrest without warrant and don’t have their names on their uniforms like legitimate police officers or soldiers. They operate without the consent of local governors and mayors.
They work in secret so that during future investigations they can’t be identified. Is this just a dress rehearsal for Election Day? Will thousands will be rounded up to prevent them from voting? Is that how we want our leaders to be reelected?
Our junior U.S. senator had the opportunity to stop this kind of thing, but he chose to acquit the president. Only Mitt Romney had the courage check him. Our leader now says masks are
patriotic, but his charade as a reasonable person is short lived.
Inauguration day, Jan. 20, has celebrated the peaceful transition of power. Will this continue?
These letters are increasingly difficult to write because things change so quickly.
By the time of printing, it’s obsolete. So many abuses that they’re taken for granted. Leaders above the law (Saddam, Reza, Juan, and Donald) are not trusted by leaders of other countries. Enjoy this exclusive club, Mr. President.
