I want to call attention to these points which you have not mentioned in your recent advertisements:
– Your recent mailing indicated that you voted in favor of Health Care solutions for thousands of Montanans. What you failed to mention is that you did so by usurping the will of the citizens who voted down Medicaid Expansion through the defeat of I-185, and the majority of your Republican colleagues who recognized that unaccountable socialized medicine is not a solution to our healthcare problems.
– You overlooked recent audit stating that nearly half of enrollees in Medicaid Expansion are not actually eligible for the program. As a taxpayer, I have to pay for ineligible people placed on Medicaid Expansion by the unaccountable liberal agency. A number don’t live in Montana, and some don’t even live in the United States. While you don’t represent me as a taxpayer, your liberal views reinforce those in their attempt to drain the system of resources.
– You overlooked that Montana Planned Parenthood donated $176,994.07 in 2018 attempting to pass Medicaid Expansion. Why would a proclaimed pro-life legislator vote to accomplish Planned Parenthood’s agenda of TAXPAYER FUNDED ABORTIONS as has been proven repeatedly by the Montana Family Foundation and Susan B. Anthony?
I sat across from you in a meeting where you raised objections to someone calling you a RINO. It certainly seems fitting. I just hope the voters of SD-44 can see through your victim act to vote against you.
