Greg GianforTAX has called a statewide sales tax an “ideal solution” for Montana. He even testified on behalf of a plan to implement one in Montana, which would have also conveniently slashed income taxes on millionaires like himself. Despite Gianforte’s outrageous claim to have “never advocated for a sales tax,” Gianforte’s own testimony reveals the truth. After all, Greg Gianforte believes that “the fairest tax is the one you pay, and I don’t.”
Gianforte also supports repealing the Affordable Care Act, which would eliminate Montana’s Medicaid expansion and tear health coverage away from 112,000 Montanans. He’s even voted in support of the Republican lawsuit to dismantle the ACA, despite the ongoing pandemic. Gianforte has also promoted the dangerous “herd immunity” strategy as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic which, if implemented, would result in more than 10,000 deaths in Montana alone.
“Greg Gianforte thinks that reaching herd immunity is Montana’s best shot to defeat COVID-19,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel. “But he still wants to levy some GianforTAX on Montanans who want to stay germ-free during the pandemic.”
