Daines, Colleagues Continue Fight Against Woke Capitalism

Call for the Termination of Citibank as the U.S. Senate’s Credit Card Provider for Circumventing Abortion Laws

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines, founder and chair of the Senate Pro-Life Caucus, led his colleagues in calling on the Senate Sergeant at Arms to immediately terminate Citibank as the U.S. Senate credit card provider following the company’s recent announcement that it would pay for its employees to travel out of state for abortions.

“…Citi is now paying for its employees to travel to obtain abortions out-of-State that are illegal in the employees’ State. Citi’s decision to finance abortion tourism for its employees in brazen circumvention of State law, shows a reckless disregard for the lives of preborn children and disdain for the will of the people of the States in which Citi acts as an employer,” the senators wrote. 

“Consistent with nearly five decades of Federal policy against using taxpayer dollars to pay for abortions, taxpayer dollars used by the U.S. Senate should not be administered through a company that facilitates abortion on demand and promotes a woke, pro-abortion agenda. Accordingly, we ask that you immediately terminate the U.S. Senate’s existing contracts with Citi and refrain from entering into any new contractual agreements with Citi,” the letter continued.

Senators Roger Marshall (Kan.), Kevin Cramer (N.D.), Ted Cruz (TX), Marco Rubio (Fla.), Roger Wicker (Miss.), Mike Braun (Ind.), Cindy Hyde-Smith (Miss.), Rick Scott (Fla.) and James Lankford (Okla.) joined Daines in sending the letter.
