    Steve Daines, ultra-conservative. Bill Rossiter writes:

    Congressman Daines’ hypocrisy reached his Facebook page yesterday when posted a staged Meals on Wheels photo op on Facebook to imply he supports the program. In reality, Daines voted to cut anti-hunger programs that would have left mostly children, seniors and veterans without food.

    If you are looking for someone who epitomizes hypocrisy, look no further than TEA Party poster boy Steve Daines. Montana’s lone Congressman voted against the bill to restore funding for the Meals on Wheels program. It would have provided an added $41 million for elderly nutrition programs, including the Meals on Wheels. He also voted for the Paul Ryan budget that cut (non-defense) spending by $900 billion which hurt ”the ability of federally assisted programs such as Meals on Wheels to continue serving populations.”
