Steve Daines has had trouble figure out what office he was running for. Now, he can’t figure out his position on the most important issue currently facing the office he seeks.
This past January, Congressional candidate Steve Daines went on record at the Bitterroot Pachyderm luncheon promising, “that he would not approve an increase in the debt ceiling.” Today, Daines has flipped his stance on the issue.
For months, Steve Daines’s campaign website asked followers to “add your name now to the petition to tell Congress to vote ‘NO’ to raising the ceiling on the national debt.” That petition has disappeared, but here’s a screenshot:
Franke Wilmer’s campaign caught the discrepancy, noting in a press release that Daines
“first agreed with the Tea Party and wanted America to default on our debt, now he agrees with Boehner and wants to cut Social Security and Medicare before raising the ceiling.”
