Helena, Mont. – Rick Hill, a Tea Party gubernatorial candidate and former member of congress, is on-the-air attacking a Primary opponent. And, the Montana Democratic Party is calling out Congressman Hill for being disingenuous about his record on tax increases in his televised attack ad.
“Congressman Rick Hill has a history of supporting massive tax increases in Big Sky Country,” said Montana Democratic Party Executive Director Ted Dick. “Hill led the charge as a lobbyist for a $400 million sales tax measure, a $72 million income tax measure, and a sharp increase in payroll taxes. If the measures Hill fought for had passed, Montanans would be paying more for guns, trucks, groceries, and to recreate.”
Dick continued: “That’s unacceptable, and Rick Hill needs to come clean about his long record of pushing for higher taxes in our state.”
