Failed Senate Candidate Also Calls for Overturning Protections for 152,000 Montanans With Pre-Existing Conditions
Despite the ongoing public health and economic crisis, Rosendale called for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, which protects 152,000 Montanans with pre-existing conditions against insurance company discrimination, and insures another 80,000 Montanans through Medicaid expansion — a program Maryland Matt voted against. Medicaid expansion has been a lifeline for communities across Montana, supporting thousands of jobs, expanding access to mental health and substance use disorder treatments, and helping rural hospitals stay afloat.
“It’s remarkable that every time Maryland Matt opens his mouth, he proves himself to be more out-of-touch than the time before,” said MDP Executive Director Sandi Luckey. “In the same interview, Matt Rosendale managed to double down on both supporting corrupt practices in his office, and ripping health coverage away from Montanans in the middle of a pandemic. Astounding.”
