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.”
Greg Gianforte has called public schools a “monopoly” and supports the privatization of Montana’s public schools. He’s donated over $12 million to Petra Academy, a private, religious school in Bozeman that discriminated against children with special needs, and he praised the Espinoza v. Montana decision, which school privatization advocates (bankrolled by Gianforte) hailed. The Montana Federation of Public Employees – Montana’s largest teacher’s union – voted to unanimously condemn his candidacy, a first for the union.
“If you’re a student buying pencils to prepare for an upcoming assignment, be prepared to pay some GianforTAX on that too,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel.
