LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(U.S. Senate) - U.S. Senator Jon Tester today voted to save rural hospitals and protect access to health care for children, seniors, veterans, disabled Montanans, and hardworking families.
Tester was the only member of Montana's Congressional delegation to support an amendment that would have protected health care for the more than 200,000 Montanans who are enrolled in Medicaid, which serves children and the disabled and helps fund rural hospitals and nursing homes.
"Today we had a chance to improve health care for Montana families and protect taxpayers, but it fell victim to partisan politics," Tester said. "Rather than protect health care for children, seniors, veterans, disabled Montanans, hardworking families, and rural communities, 52 Senators today turned their backs on Montana and rural America in favor of proposals that will jack up health care costs and take money out of Montanans' pockets."
