Senator Daines “Shameful. Senate Democrats voted to allow billions of taxpayer dollars to be used to fund abortions”

Saturday Republican Senator Steve Daines of Montana tweeted in response to the passing of the $1.9 trillion dollar spending bill:

Shameful. Senate Democrats voted to allow billions of taxpayer dollars to be used to fund abortions.

They voted against applying a 44 year protection called the Hyde amendment—one that was included in all five previous bipartisan COVID packages.

Preventing taxpayer dollars from being used to fund abortions is something a majority of Americans agree with. I’m very disappointed to see Senate Democrats use COVID “relief” to get away with their pro-abortion agenda.

I’m proud to fight this fight with @SenatorLankford, @SenatorWicker
and several other of my Republican colleagues. We won’t stop working to protect ALL life.

Daines called the package a “liberal wish list” in a recent video.
