LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(Great Falls, Mont.) - U.S. Senator Jon Tester held another public, in-person town hall today to hear directly from Montanans about the recently released Senate health care bill.
Tester is the only member of Montana's congressional delegation holding face-to-face town halls with the public.
After 13 Senators drafted the controversial, so-called Better Care Reconciliation Act in secret, they finally released the legislation for the public to read just days before a Senate vote.
“This public town hall was another important opportunity to hear from the people of Montana about what’s at risk if the Senate passes this reckless bill, which drives up health care costs, takes away coverage, and gives tax breaks to the very wealthy,” said Tester. “Health care impacts every man, woman, and child in our state and this legislation will take us back to the days where folks got sick and couldn’t afford life-saving medical care. We need to make improvements to our current health care system, not kick thousands off their health insurance plans and jack up rates for Montana families.”
