Montanans believe marriage is a fundamental right

The Supreme Court has already struck down the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act. Thirty-seven states — including Montana — legally recognize the right of same-sex couples to marry.

And next week on April 28th, the Supreme Court will hear a series of cases that could finally extend those rights to every American.

Montanans believe in personal freedom and the right to make a good life for our families. No one can tell us who we are allowed to love or who we can marry. That’s our business and ours alone.

Montanans, and a majority of Americans, believe that marriage is a fundamental right that should be extended to all Americans, regardless of creed or sexual orientation.

The care veterans have earned

In order to really understand a problem, you have to hear what’s going on from those affected. And the best ideas for solutions come from Montanans themselves.

When it comes to getting veterans the health care and benefits they’ve earned, I leave no stone unturned. So, I took Veterans Affairs Secretary Bob McDonald on a tour of Montana, so he could hear about the issues our veterans face.

In Montana we have one of the highest rates of veterans per capita of any state — approximately 1 in 10 Montanans is a veteran. And nearly half of those veterans live in rural areas.
