3 DAYS: Reminder: Rosendale Not Looking Out For Montanans With Pre-Existing Conditions

Brooke BainumNews

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.

That’s in line with Rosendale, whose plan for our current health care system would also end protections for Montanans with pre-existing conditions.

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.
