FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

If this lawsuit is successful, it would end protections for 152,000 Montanans with pre-existing conditions, healthcare coverage for 90,000 Montanans through Medicaid expansion, the ability for children to stay on their parents’ insurance, and it would raise prices on prescription drugs.
Republican Attorney General Tim Fox declined to join the lawsuit brought forth by his fellow Republican Attorneys General out of concerns that it would take healthcare away from Montanans with pre-existing conditions. Knudsen said he entered the Attorney General race because Fox refused to join this dangerous lawsuit and has made joining this lawsuit the core message of his campaign for Attorney General.
Knudsen vs. the ACA:
- Wrote an op-ed to champion the ACA lawsuit as part of his campaign launch.
- Said he entered the race for Attorney General because Fox had not done enough to repeal the ACA.
- Led Republican efforts against the passage of Medicaid expansion in the Montana Legislature.
“If Knudsen is elected, he will take Montana in a dangerous direction by joining this extremist lawsuit to rip healthcare away from Montanans,” said MDP Communications Director Nathan Stein. “As Montana continues to weather this pandemic, it’s more important than ever that our Attorney General acts independently of party bosses and does what’s right for the people of Montana.”
