Helena – Yesterday, multimillionaire Congressman Greg Gianforte voted to cut more than $470 billion from Medicare over the next decade and turn the health care program into a voucher system in the name of giving himself a tax break. The reduction in Medicare funding will be used in the recently unveiled tax proposal to finance giveaways to superwealthy Americans like Gianforte.
 
During his campaign for Congress, Gianforte wrote that he would fight for older Montanans: “I'll work to protect and strengthen Social Security and Medicare.” But his vote to cut almost half a billion dollars from Medicare proves this promise to be just another example of Gianforte breaking his word to Montanans.
