New Daines Ad Highlights Obamacare’s Devastating Consequences for Montanans

Ad features Livingston resident, Gayla, who lost insurance under Obamacare


BOZEMAN, Mont. — Today, the Steve Daines for Montana campaign released a new ad highlighting the devastating impact that Obamacare has had on the people of Montana.

In “Gayla,” a thirty-second ad that will run statewide beginning today, Livingston, Montana resident Gayla Wing shares how she lost her insurance because of new Obamacare regulations.

While sitting in a booth at a cafe in Livingston, Gayla shares her life-long struggle with diabetes and how losing her insurance forced her to find other ways to pay for her insulin.

“I’ve had diabetes since I’ve been about 13 years old. When Obamacare kicked in, our plan didn’t qualify,” Gayla shares. “We lost our insurance. I’m back trying to pay for my insulin again.”

Gayla is one of tens of thousands of Montanans who lost their insurance because of Obamacare. Many other Montanans have faced higher premiums and deductibles– some choosing to forgo insurance altogether because of the cost.

“I’ve worked hard all my life, and it just seems like the working person isn’t getting ahead again,” Gayla continues. “I’m glad that Steve Daines is against Obamacare. We need more people like Steve Daines that will stand up and help the working class.”
