Here’s Every Day Steve Daines Wasted Before Realizing CHIP Was Important

Senator Steve Daines played a dangerous political game using the coverage of thousands of Montana kids as bargaining chips.    When it became politically advantageous, Daines became in favor of reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

CHIP expired at the end of September.  Legislation to reauthorize the program was written and championed by Democratic and Republican Senators.  Daines never saw it fit to try and reauthorize CHIP.

For over 110 days Daines found it not to his political liking to reauthorize CHIP.  Then he saw an opportunity to try and score political points.  Below is a list of every day Daines sat idly by when these kids insurance hung in the balance:

  1. Wait a minute, didn’t Tester just vote against CHIP?

  2. Me thinks Daines speaks out of both sides of his face.

  3. yes, tester voted against the bill. and as doug pointed out, that coverage IS useless without community health care centers. tester wanted to keep funding those health care centers. guess the repubs left those providers out in the cold…oh, i forget. the county health centers have no spare change for lobbyists.

    • IMO Jon Tester seems to be trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

      He has a huge amount of cash, because the Dems (the party of the rich) want to keep him in office. He has aligned himself with issues like helping veterans, and public lands, and has avoided special rights for gays, gun control, affirmative action, and abortion on demand, and should have been cruising towards the primary.

      But then he goes and votes to keep the government shutdown, because he values illegal aliens more than Montanans. Very stupid.

      • That’s a good little rightwing parrot. Keep squawking out the talking points and lies you’ve been taught.

        Have another cracker, Polly then wash it down with some kool-aid.

  4. “Very stupid.”

    Yes Eric*, you are.

    No surprise a simpleton such as yourself sees things in such simple (distorted/tribal) terms.

    Do you embarrass yourself like this to people who know you?

  5. Ha Ha – I love it when lefties, particularly anonymous lefties, are true to form.

    You forget, that I know how you think.

    And when you hear the truth, particularly truths you don’t want to swallow, you start trying to insult me.

    Good luck.

    Usually the only lefties I teach, are ones I help campaign against, and they all paid dearly for the lessons.

    The Tester campaign doesn’t have an opponent yet, and they are lucky, because a Schumer-pleasing vote 6 weeks before the election will sink him.

    Watch the damage control.

  6. ” I love it when lefties, particularly anonymous lefties, are true to form.”

    So your given and legal name is Eric*.
