Throwback Thursday: Matt Rosendale in the Pocket of Junk Insurance

Rosendale Took Over $16k from Junk Insurance Execs, Then Pushed Junk Insurance onto Montana Families

Helena, MT – After yet another quarter in which Maryland Matt Rosendale was outraised by his Democratic opponent — leaving him nearly half a million behind in cash-on-hand — we’re looking back on the time that Rosendale raised $16,600 from short-term junk health insurance executives in Florida as Insurance Commissioner, then cut himself a check with their money to pay down a personal loan.

Now, as the COVID-19 pandemic stretches on, State Auditor Matt Rosendale continues to push junk insurance in direct response to concerns over coronavirus — despite the fact that “not all short-term plans may cover testing for COVID-19” and that the plans could “reject Montanans who have pre-existing health conditions.” Recently, a report revealed that many consumers have been forced to pay for their own lifesaving treatment under short-term junk insurance plans, but Maryland Matt continues to list them as a viable option. 

Rosendale himself has refused to say whether he’d buy a junk insurance plan for his own family.

“If people are wondering why Maryland Matt Rosendale is pushing junk insurance in a pandemic, all they need to do is take a look at his checkbook,” said MDP Communications Director Nathan Stein. “Maryland Matt Rosendale is a typical out-of-touch politician, more interested in securing campaign contributions than actually helping Montanans.”
