Helena – One of Matt Rosendale’s DC fundraising buddies, Mitch McConnell, confirmed last month that he would continue trying to strip protections for folks with pre-existing conditions after the midterms if he got the votes.
His support for expanding junk plans that don’t have to cover pre-existing conditions directly contradicts his claim to “always” protect Montanans with pre-existing conditions. But it does make sense once you learn that insurance execs who push those junk plans donated more than $16,000 to his campaign, which he cut himself a check with.
And as insurance commissioner, Rosendale brought back an unregulated program that was previously banned from our state and isn’t required to cover pre-existing conditions.
Rosendale might say what he thinks Montanans want to hear, but his support for junk plans that don’t cover pre-existing conditions — and his inability to give any specifics on his plan for pre-existing conditions coverage protections — show his true agenda, and it doesn’t include protecting the 152,000 Montanans with pre-existing conditions.
