His work has appeared in Politico and Rewire.

In the past few years, travel has become a priority, whether it's a road trip to some little town in Montana or a museum of culture in Ísafjörður, Iceland.

  • HB-405 hurts the poorest of the poor. It’s a de facto doubling or tripling of their income tax rate, contains an asset cap on homes that’s unrealistically low for some parts of the state, and further reduces incomes through new co-pays. Montanans already on Medicaid will be hurt by HB-405, but the higher income Montanans who could afford to pay a little more to help those at the bottom will be spared the indignity of being taxed to do so.

    Progressives who support this pact with the devil are doing an evil thing.
