Greg Gianforte regularly earns hundreds of thousands of dollars from passive investments, including in pandemic-related companies. Despite being the wealthiest elected member of Congress, Gianforte voted against extending unemployment benefits for working Montanans, maintaining that Montanans who remain out of work should receive $0 in extended unemployment benefits from the federal government beyond tonight’s deadline.
“While Gianforte can simply watch his bank account grow by the day, he thinks thousands of working Montanans should be cut off from extended federal assistance during an unprecedented public health emergency,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel. “Working families looking for a champion certainly won’t find one in Greg Gianforte. He’s too busy counting his millions to speak up for working Montanans.”
