🏔️This tells you everything you need to know about U.S. Senator Jon Tester from #Montana: he made history as being the first member of Congress who posted his daily schedule online.
⚡️Here's Tester's latest public schedule:
🚜But in case you need to know a little more, he is part of the third generation from his family who have resided in Montana & has shown that he will protect the state from interlopers. The top “issue” on his campaign website is “fighting for veterans.”
🎖️There are more than 100,000 veterans in Montana, approximately 10% of the population.

🦸‍♂️Tester is the ranking member of the Veterans Affairs Committee and has been unyielding about correcting the egregious problems with the Department of Veterans Affairs that have plagued it in recent years.…
🎖️Tester was a cosponsor of The VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, a landmark bill that holds bad VA employees accountable if they are not doing their jobs.…
🥼Tester dug deep into the “waiting period” for vets to receive medical help & demanded that the VA send a special expert team to solve the issue in #Montana. He also made sure that their claims got paid.

🙌He supports the new VA Secretary Robert Wilkie.…
🎖️Tester was a cosponsor of the bipartisan VA MISSION Act of 2018 which deep-sixed the VA Choice program that wasn’t working & will create a streamlined system that focuses on giving care to veterans in their own communities.
💥When an Afghanistan veteran waited for almost 3 hours to find out he couldn't get a finger x-ray at the facility because of a "40-mile rule," (part of the VA Choice program) & posted his grievances on Facebook, Tester fired off a letter to Trump.
⚡️Montana resident Jonathan Devine's video went viral.

💥He thought it was outrageous to have to drive 200 miles to get a pinky x-ray.

🤝It was. Senator Tester agreed.…
🎖️Tester also continues to work to bring the best possible medical professionals to Montana to work at the VA facilities. He’s secured 9 new veterans clinics, vet centers or telehealth clinics across the state. #Montana veterans, he’s got your backs!
ℹ️Tester also supports veteran assistance programs for drug dependence & homelessness.

🙌Additionally, he helped get financing “over the goal line” for a Veterans home in Butte, after nearly a decade of wrangling over the project.…
💰💰Two-thirds will be paid by the federal government through grant applications with the remaining third coming from the state of #Montana. It was approved as part of the omnibus bill package in March 2018.
🏗️"I will be holding the VA accountable to make sure that construction gets underway quickly," Tester said in March 2018. Montana Budget Director Dan Villa says the goal is to bid the job in January 2019 and start the project later in 2019.🧱…
Tester’s opponent, Matt Rosedale, has repeatedly voted against Montana’s veterans. Rosedale told Breitbart News in March that the omnibus bills were “nothing more than Christmas trees that are great, big fat pieces of pork…(cont'd)
🐷Jon Tester's opponent Matt Rosedale (cont'd): "...the people of Montana want to send me to Washington, not to bring home the bacon, but to slaughter the hog.”

🧨He did get 8 retweets.
🗳️Please vote for Joe Tester in #Montana on November 6, 2018!
