Rosendale Opposes Bipartisan Medicaid Plan, Critical Care for Montanans

Helena – Montana’s Medicaid Plan provides 93,000 Montanans with health care and strengthens Montana’s community health centers, which give critical health care services to more than 100,000 people across the state.

But three years ago today, wealthy East Coast developer Matt Rosendale voted against the bipartisan Medicaid Plan that bolstered community health centers and rural hospitals – and has been an “absolutely critical” part of aiding veterans and other Montanans fighting drug addiction.

Today, as a candidate for U.S. Senate, Rosendale still opposes Montana’s Medicaid Plan even as a new study confirms that it benefits our state’s economy, supports thousands of jobs a year, saves Montana $40 million, and is good for personal income and health.

Instead of protecting Montanans, Rosendale pushes harmful policies that would drastically increase premiums and cover much fewer people, and rubber-stamped rate hikes. Rosendale has been a consistent opponent of measures to provide more Montanans with the crucial health care they need. Trying to pass himself off as an insurance commissioner who helps Montana is nothing but misleading.
