Editors Picks Reminder: These Montana Republicans Voted for Tax-Payer Funded Abortions

Reminder: These Montana Republicans Voted for Tax-Payer Funded Abortions

When socialist-leaning Solutions Caucus Republicans crossed over to vote with Democrats for Medicaid Expansion in 2019, which the voters of Montana rejected in a 2018 ballot measure, they did so by reasoning that a work requirement justified their vote and would keep the able-bodied from abusing the system. However, the Montana Medicaid Expansion work requirement will likely now be overturned by the courts after a similar requirement passed in Arkansas was just overturned by a federal court in Washington D.C.

Additionally, the Medicaid Expansion Renewal vote is tragic for Big Sky conservatives because the bill provides for tax-payer funded abortions.

As Montana gears up for the 2021 session, it’s important to be reminded who the Republicans were who voted with Democrats on this issue to provide tax-payer funded abortions through the Medicaid Expansion Renewal.
