Throwback Thursday: Gianforte’s Statewide Sales Tax
Richest Member of Congress Has Always Pushed Policies that Enrich Himself
Helena, MT – Montana Democrats are taking a look back at one of Greg Gianforte’s greatest hits — his advocacy for a statewide sales tax. In testimony before a state tax advisory council, Gianforte called a statewide sales tax an “ideal solution.”
Gianforte’s “ideal solution” disproportionately hurts families on lower incomes, but that’s hardly a concern for the richest member of Congress. Gianforte has repeatedly pushed tax policies that benefit wealthy corporations, big banks, and multimillionaires like him. His record is clear — Gianforte will fight for himself, not working families.
“As long as he’s been in public life, Greg Gianforte has advocated relentlessly for large corporations and the ultra wealthy at the expense of working Montanans,” said MDP Executive Director Sandi Luckey. “Make no mistake, while sales tax advocates clamor to raise the cost on everything Montanans buy, they know Greg Gianforte is their friend — because Greg Gianforte will always put himself first.”
