Daines slams spending deal – demands verification after Missoula rape
Montana Senator Steve Daines called the KGVO Newsmaker’s Line on Thursday and discussed a variety of topics, from the multibillion dollar spending bill, to energy shortages around the world and the reported lack of control. may have led to a sexual assault in Missoula.
Daines said the new bill hasn’t even been drafted yet.
“This is a dream bill for Bernie Sanders and Nancy Pelosi,” said Senator Daines. “We haven’t seen any framework on this, let alone legislation on this very reckless, multi-trillion dollar tax and spending madness that is going to hurt Montana’s farmers, ranchers, workers and small businesses. This appears to be one of the biggest tax increases in our country’s history; one of the largest spending bills in our nation’s history and it’s on a purely partisan basis every Republican senator in the United States opposes. “
Daines referred to Biden’s cancellation of the Keystone pipeline and linked it to massive energy shortages in Europe and Asia.
“What has happened is that the Europeans have adopted these radical ideas of the Green New Deal,” he said. “They pushed them forward in their economies, decommissioning nuclear power plants decommissioning coal power plants and they were left with only renewables, and guess what happened? They lack energy, and they will not have enough energy to keep Europeans warm this winter. It’s a disaster right now in Europe and listen, it’s happening on our shores if we don’t stop this madness, this madness that’s going on right now in Washington with the Democrats.
Daines mentioned that he met Montana Superintendent of Public Education Elsie Arntzen and how US Attorney General Merrick Garland called some parents “domestic terrorists.”
“What (AG Merrick) Garland has done is unbelievably and frankly frightening overbreadth, preying on parents and criminalizing and sort of branding parents as national terrorists,” he said. “I actually spoke with Superintendent Elsie Arntzen from Montana. She was in Washington yesterday and we had a good face to face meeting. I am proud of what Elsie is doing to protect our children and enable parents to participate in their children’s education. She and I totally agree that we need to empower Montana parents, not silence them.
Governor Greg Gianforte issued a letter to President Biden regarding the unacceptable lack of proper control of so-called “humanitarian parolees” that may have led to a tragic sexual assault here in Missoula.
“I join Governor Gianforte in calling on President Biden to stop all Afghan resettlement in Montana until we get clear answers,” he said. “What happened? Who are these individuals? Were they properly vetted? So we demand that the administration tell us exactly what the vetting and selection process is, and what the screening process was for the person? who was arrested and charged with the rape in Missoula.
Daines was elected for his second term in 2020.
