  • OP-ED: Fighting for Montana values

    Sen. Steve Daines - R, U.S. Senate|Updated Feb 5, 2024

    With the holidays behind us and Congress gearing up for a new session, I look forward to continuing my mission fighting for our Montana way of life in Washington, D.C. Under President Joe Biden and Democrat congressional leadership, Montanans are facing the highest inflation rate in three decades, driving up prices of everything from groceries to used cars. In addition, the wide-open southern border is allowing record amounts of fentanyl to devastate our communities, and the...

  • I'm Thankful for Montana

    Sen. Steve Daines - R, U.S. Senate -Montana|Updated Nov 25, 2022

    As a fifth-generation Montanan, I didn't choose Montana - Montana chose me. Over 100 years ago, my great-great-grandmother homesteaded 23 miles east of Conrad, and that's how my family made it to the Last Best Place. And I'll be forever thankful for that. There is a lot that makes America an exceptional place to live, and the Thanksgiving tradition is one of them. It's an integral part of our uniquely American story. For the last 400 years, we have gathered with our families,...

  • Op-ed: Halloween Horror: Biden's America

    Sen. Steve Daines - R, Montana|Updated Nov 1, 2022

    Do you like scary movies? You don’t have to rent a horror movie this Halloween to feel spooked—just take a look at what President Biden and the Democrats have done since they took control of the White House and Congress. Inflation is clocking in at forty-year highs. It can cost Montana families over $100 just to fill up their tank. Fentanyl from the open southern border is wreaking havoc across Montana. Good-paying energy jobs have been nixed. Our small-town communities are...

  • Democrats' reckless tax and spend spree will exacerbate inflation crisis hurting Montanans

    U.S. Sen. Steve Daines - R|Updated Dec 15, 2021

    Montana families across the state are feeling the pain in their pocketbooks from inflation and higher prices on everything from gas to groceries to heating their homes. What's causing this? President Biden and Congressional Democrats' wasteful spending problems, and their multitrillion dollar reckless tax and spending spree bill will only make matters worse. Last week, inflation hit a nearly 40 year high, backing estimates that families will spend an extra $4,600 more this...

  • Op-Ed: Working to Protect Montanans from Democrats' Tax and Spend Spree

    Sen. Steve Daines - R, Montana - US Senate|Updated Oct 20, 2021

    Democrats, led by President Biden, Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders and Nancy Pelosi, are rushing a reckless $3.5 trillion tax and spending spree bill through Congress that would reshape the very foundation of America and push the U.S. down the path of socialism. The Democrats’ massive bill is the largest spending bill in our nation’s history and will create all sorts of new entitlement programs. To pay for it, Democrats plan to hike taxes across the board, making this bill the...

  • Op-Ed: Justice Amy Coney Barrett will Protect Montana's Way of Life

    Sen. Steve Daines - R, Montana|Updated Oct 28, 2020

    Earlier this year, I joined two Montana families at the United States Supreme Court. I went to hear the oral arguments for a landmark case very relevant to the State of Montana. The case was about equal protection under the Constitution, religious freedom, and protecting Montana families and children from being discriminated against because of the school they choose. I saw nine brilliant Supreme Court justices ask tough questions to both sides. Frankly, I saw the finest hour...

  • Commentary: Thankful to Those Who Served

    Sen. Steve Daines - R|Updated Dec 3, 2019

    The holiday season is upon us. Montana families across our state are giving thanks and enjoying quality time with their families and loved ones. As we gather around the dining table this year to express our gratitude, let us not forget the extraordinary privilege we have as free Americans. I want to give thanks to our Montana service members currently deployed, unable to be home for the holidays this year. Thank you for protecting our nation. I also want to express my...
