Several dozen people gather outside Republican U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte's Helena office Monday afternoon to protest his vote in favor of the tax reform bill recently passed by the U.S. House. A letter that was read at the demonstration said the tax cuts would unfairly benefit the richest Americans while hurting the middle class. "By supporting this tax scam you are voting against the interests of ordinary Montanans, the people you are sworn to represent," the letter says. Gianforte previously told The Billings Gazette the tax cuts would spur economic growth as consumers bought more items and businesses invested their savings in growth.
