Fair warning: if you're like me, your jaw's about to hit the floor.
On Thursday, Greg Gianforte, the Republican candidate in this month's congressional special election in Montana, told voters that he couldn't support the House GOP's health care bill.
But just a few hours later, Gianforte was caught on tape -- on a call with his lobbyist donors -- celebrating the passage of a bill that would take away thousands of Montanans' and millions of Americans' health care.
It's the kind of brazen, cynical talking out of both sides of one's mouth that you'd expect from the bad-guy politician in a cheesy movie. But this is real life, and it shows just how much is at stake in this special election.
Fortunately, Montanans have a better choice. Rob Quist is running a grassroots campaign to represent hardworking Montanans and their families in Congress and won't be beholden to special interests. He believes in protecting our right to get the health care we need -- and unlike his opponent, he means what he says.
The choice in this election couldn't be more clear, so let's make sure we're giving Rob everything he needs to win.
