Lindeen No Show At Debate After Calling Premium Increases ‘Too Low’
Monica Lindeen exercised bad judgement when she was a no-show at Seeley Lake this past Monday despite agreeing to face off against Corey Stapleton in a candidate forum on the Secretary of State’s race.
Her abrupt decision to cancel on this debate comes days after she called Montana’s health care premium increases ‘too low.’ Coincidence?
Here’s what happened: When Montana Health CO-OP and Pacific Source originally submitted lower premium rates, Monica Lindeen rejected their rates saying she ‘found their rates to be too low.’ She wanted higher rates for their health care plans and ordered them ‘to raise their rates.’
Talk about bad judgment: Pushing higher premium rates onto Montana families.
It’s not just that Monica Lindeen pushed for higher premiums this year – For the second year in a row now she has given Montanans double digit premium hikes!
These skyrocketing premium increases year after year come even after she gave her word that Obamacare would not bring ‘dramatic price increases.’
Monica Lindeen misled Montanans about Obamacare and the false promise of lower premiums, and she stands by Obamacare with unwavering support as Montana families are left struggling with their ever increasing premiums.
Montanans are the ones paying the price for Monica Lindeen’s bad judgement. Let’s retire her in November.
