SKIPPED: Vote on CDC Funding
Last year, Gianforte skipped a vote to fund the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, opting instead to fly from Washington, D.C. on Air Force 2 to launch his gubernatorial campaign -- literally putting his political career ahead of his constituents.
After 20 minutes, Gianforte WALKS OUT of the hearing!
SKIPPED: Hearing on Coronavirus
Then on February 26, the day after the CDC warned of an almost certain COVID-19 outbreak, Gianforte walked out of a hearing after just over 20 minutes, right as Dr. Anthony Fauci, Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar and other top officials were set to begin testifying.
He missed these experts testifying against massive proposed cuts to critical front line public health agencies:
$3 billion from the National Institutes of Health
$430 million from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
$625+ million from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Gianforte also missed these experts discussing the “long term economic impacts” of COVID-19.
How can Montanans trust that he is making informed decisions if he can’t even be bothered to show up?
