Daines and Gianforte Say Tax Proposal is “do-or-die”

After almost 10 months with no major accomplishments besides multiple failed attempts to destroy the health care system, Senator Steve Daines and Congressman Greg Gianforte are desperate. In interviews over the past week, each acknowledged that if their tax proposal is not passed into law by the end of the year, they should be held responsible for Washington’s lack of action on the most important issues facing Montana.
 
Speaking to Fox Business News earlier this week, Daines said, “We must get [the tax proposal] done. This is must pass. If we don’t get this done, frankly they should send us all home.”
 
Gianforte concurred in an interview last week with Lee Newspapers“This is a do-or-die situation for Republican leadership. I’m hearing from many people saying, ‘Listen, you guys better get your act together.’ We need to get it done by the end of the year or we’ve missed our window.” He reiterated the point Tuesday to MTN, saying, “Montanans and the American people are going to judge us based on what we get done. We need to get tax reform done.”
