Montanans for Bullock Release New Ads Featuring Big Sky Nurses Applauding Governor Bullock’s Leadership in Expanding Medicaid
“Without Governor Bullock, there are thousands of families who would never be able to afford healthcare coverage”
Helena, Mont. –– Today, Montanans for Bullock released two new ads featuring nurses across Big Sky Country commending Governor Steve Bullock for his leadership in bringing Democrats and Republicans together to expand Medicaid – calling the accomplishment “huge” and “monumental.” In 2015, Governor Bullock passed Medicaid expansion to expand healthcare coverage to over 90,000 Montanans. Since its initial passage and reauthorization in 2019, Medicaid expansion has created thousands of jobs and served as a crucial lifeline to keep rural hospitals afloat. Not a single rural hospital has closed since Governor Bullock helped expand Medicaid.
While Governor Bullock has been working across the aisle to expand Montanans’ access to quality, affordable healthcare, Washington politicians like Mitch McConnell and Steve Daines have been working to strip it away – even in the middle of a pandemic. As Montana’s next Senator, Governor Bullock will continue his career-long fight for affordable healthcare for all Montanans.
“Cares” and “Choteau” will begin to run on Thursday, July 9th.
