LETTER: Daines vs. Walsh: A Clear Contrast

By Beacon Staff

While deliberately dodging the public’s questions after recently leaked emails exposed a plot to hand a U.S. Senate seat to Gov. Steve Bullock’s right-hand man, John Walsh, Rep. Steve Daines is working tirelessly at his job in Washington fighting for the interests of Montana.

I was proud to see Daines recently show his strong opposition to the internet sales tax as this is bad policy for Montana. Rather than try to manage the $4 trillion they receive annually, Washington bureaucrats would rather find other ways to tax hard working Montanans to fuel their irresponsible spending. It is encouraging to see Daines support good policy that is fair to taxpayers throughout the nation.

Unfortunately, while Daines is fighting for Montana, Sen. Walsh is busy fielding questions about his appointment to the U.S. Senate and is not focused on protecting Montana from the continual overreach of the federal government.
