Millionaire Congressman Dennis Rehberg compared Pell Grants to welfare yet again today, but students and hardworking families across Montana still aren't buying his out-of-touch explanation.
Last month, after voting to gut Pell Grants altogether, Rehberg called Pell Grants the "welfare of the 21st Century." After angering Montanans across the state, he's now trying to tell us that he's "working so hard" to keep Pell Grants.
"Career politicians like Dennis Rehberg are good at telling people what they want to hear, but Montanans know better than that," said Ted Dick, Executive Director of the Montana Democratic Party. "Dennis Rehberg has a long history of claiming he supports things he votes against. But what we really want to hear from Dennis Rehberg is how he's working so hard to keep Pell Grants. Montanans deserve more than talking points; we deserve answers."
