When it comes to accessing quality healthcare in Montana, you can count on New Jersey multimillionaire and failed gubernatorial candidate Greg Gianforte to block the way.
Over the years, Gianforte has contributed thousands of dollars to D.C. special interest groups which have actively worked to kill the bi-partisan HELP Act that has brought healthcare to more than 70,000 hard-working Montanans.
The Gianforte Family Charitable Trust contributed $1,150 to Americans for Prosperity in 2013-2014. [Gianforte Family Charitable Trust 2013 IRS 990 via Guidetsar.org].
The Heritage Foundation advocated against Medicaid expansion in Montana 03/05/13, attacked moderate Republicans who supported medicaid expansion (5/10/13) and called on states to not only “reject Medicaid expansion” but to also “scale back existing eligibility where possible” 03/05/13.
From 2008 to 2014, Gianforte contributed $8,000 to the Heritage Foundation. [Gianforte Family Charitable Trust IRS 990 via Guidetsar.org]
“Montanans can’t count on New Jersey millionaire Greg Gianforte to stand up for their right to access quality healthcare,” said Nancy Keenan, executive director of the Montana Democratic Party. “With his sizeable contributions to special interests that actively work against Montana families, he just simply can’t be trusted to represent Montanans in Washington D.C.”
