If this is Daines’ plan, the fewer people hear about his agenda, the better things will go for him. Perhaps this is why Daines came across as defensive about his reticence to discuss his views in the Helena IR:
“Maybe we’re doing Montanans a service by not being on the front page of the paper every day, and invading their radio and TV,” says Steve Daines.
There are more than 170,000 seniors in Montana who rely on Medicare for their health care, most of whom will vote.
Daines plan would raise premiums on our seniors by $6,4000 each. It would raise he age of eligibility from 65 to 67. It would also increase the cost that seniors pay out-of-pocket for their prescriptions, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
