When It Comes to Standing Up for Veterans, Rosendale is a “Fraud”
 
Helena, MT – Matt Rosendale talks a big game on standing for Montana veterans, but his record says otherwise. This week, the Montana Democratic Party is taking a closer look at Maryland Matt’s long history of opposing services for Montana’s veterans, starting with his 2011 vote to slash funding for the Columbia Falls Veterans Home.

As a state legislator, Maryland Matt voted to slash funding for the Columbia Falls Veterans Home by over $3 million, a move opposed by veterans, Flathead residents, and even Montana Republicans like Ryan Zinke. In response to the measure, a state senior vice commander of the Montana Veterans of Foreign Wars said “Veterans are tired of corporations making a profit off our wounds and disabilities,” and a nurse’s aide at the home called it a “bad idea.” A veterans’ advocacy group pointed to the vote as further proof that Rosendale is a “fraud.”

“Maryland Matt has proven time and again that when it comes to standing up for Montana’s veterans, he’s dangerously out of touch,” said MDP Communications Director Nathan Stein. “Montana’s veterans demand a Representative in Congress with a proven record of advocacy — and Maryland Matt doesn’t make the cut.”
