Helena, MT – On Saturday, Greg Gianforte voted against bipartisan legislation to provide $25 billion in emergency relief to the USPS – again. Despite widespread reports of malfeasance – as dozens of mail collection boxes have been removed and sorting machines have been dismantled in towns across Montana – Gianforte slammed the critical bill as a “dog and pony show” that wasn’t focused on a “real emergency.”
Gianforte himself recently called for legislation to “right” the Postal Service, but when Republicans and Democrats came together to pass bipartisan relief for USPS, Gianforte voted NO. He even said he’ll “continue working with USPS to ensure… delivery service across all of Montana,” but Gianforte’s words of support ring hollow after voting to deny the USPS the emergency relief it so desperately needs.
“Talk is cheap, votes are what matters. Greg Gianforte’s vote against the USPS is a slap in the face to all Montanans – plain and simple,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel. “Just like a typical DC politician, Greg Gianforte will say whatever it takes to get elected. He’s only looking out for himself, never Montanans.”
