Rosendale Maintains Attacks on Pre-Existing Conditions, Medicaid Expansion Despite Pandemic
Rosendale Pushing Junk Insurance in the Midst of Public Health Crisis
Helena, MT – As Montana weathers the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Maryland Matt Rosendale is maintaining his attacks on access to quality, affordable health care, going so far as to push short-term junk insurance plans that could “reject Montanans who have pre-existing health conditions.” This comes as no surprise, as Rosendale’s history of attacking protections for pre-existing conditions is well–documented. Maryland Matt is also continuing his attacks on Medicaid expansion, which currently covers 90,000 Montanans across the state, has created thousands of jobs, and has proven to be a lifeline for rural hospitals and the communities they support.
Kathleen Williams, on the other hand, has been a champion for affordable health care. As a state legislator, Kathleen was instrumental in passing the bipartisan legislation that expanded Medicaid — legislation that Maryland Matt voted against. Kathleen also passed legislation that stopped insurance companies from denying routine care to cancer patients. And as Montana’s Representative in Congress, Kathleen will defend Montanans with pre-existing conditions from insurance company discrimination, and continue to fight for quality, affordable health care.
“Maryland Matt has proven several times over that he’s an enemy of quality, affordable health care, but keeping up attacks on Montanans with pre-existing conditions during a public health crisis is low — even for Matt. ” said MDP Executive Director Sandi Luckey. “In November, Montanans are going to elect someone they can trust to look out for their health care — and Maryland Matt is going to be out of a job.”
