Quist Slams Gianforte’s D.C. Agenda to Gut Health Care Coverage for Thousands of Montanans 

Today, U.S. House candidate Rob Quist criticized opponent, Greg Gianforte, for standing with special interests and irresponsible Republicans in D.C. who are working to pass legislation that would jeopardize access to health care for thousands of Montanans while giving millionaires like Gianforte $600 billion in tax breaks.

“It is the right of every Montanan to have access to quality affordable health care,” said Rob Quist, candidate for the U.S. House. “Greg Gianforte is putting thousands of Montanans at risk of losing their health insurance by siding with Washington D.C. insiders.”  

Failed candidate for governor, Greg Gianforte, accepted the Republican nomination for the U.S. House while touting support for efforts in D.C. to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

The plan put out by Republican leaders would devastate Montana by effectively cutting off health care access put in place by Montana’s HELP Act that enabled over 70,000 Montanans to have access to health care. The House Republican plan further hits rural states like Montana by reducing tax credits that help consumers with premiums, making health insurance less affordable for many Montana families who purchase individual health insurance plans.

House Republican leadership’s SuperPAC, Congressional Leadership Fund, is spending $700,000 in attack TV ads to help Gianforte in the race.
