Casey Schreiner on Health Care

 

 


Won reauthorization of Medicaid expansion

Casey is a champion for working families because he comes from one. As House Democratic Leader, Casey broke the logjam on reauthorizing Medicaid expansion and protecting health care for 1 in 10 Montanans, delivered a major infrastructure package that will break ground all across the state, and pushed for firefighter health and safety legislation that was 15 years in the making.

Will fight to lower drug costs, take on big pharma

As Democratic Leader, Casey worked with both sides of the aisle to reauthorize Medicaid expansion, which threw a lifeline to rural Montana hospitals, supported small businesses, and protected the health care of 1 in 10 Montanans. Casey knows that Montanans are paying too much for their life-saving medicine. He'll fight non-stop to lower drug costs and take big pharmaceutical companies to task for price hikes.

Choice between health or quality of life is "disgusting"

He said he lost his father a year ago due to complications from Type 2 diabetes. He added that his father, because of the high cost of his medicine, had to decide every day whether he was going to take his insulin or have the quality of life to be happy. "If you are making a decision between quality of life and quality of health, that's a disgusting choice that no Montanan should have to make," he said.
