Matt Rosendale Shows He Would Make a Great Postman, Maybe Talks Health Care, and Gawks at GOP ‘Celebs’
Doing his best Newman from Seinfeld impression Matt Rosendale saved himself the 49 cents for a stamp and hand delivered a letter to Senator Tester today.
I don’t know who paid for this trip whether it was Mr. Rosendale’s campaign committee or the Montana taxpayer but I do know for certain that the USPS is pretty darn reliable and for a fiscal conservative, this trip seemed like a bit of a waste of money.
It’s hard to determine which Matt Rosendale was in Washington DC today, Commissioner Matt, or politician Matt because Rosendale alternated between his twitter accounts throughout his day on Capitol Hill.
First, we had Commissioner Rosendale showing he wasn’t afraid of dogs and could deliver the mail with the best of them calling for “real action” and what says
political stunt real action like handing a letter to an intern!

Following his special delivery he tried his best to hide his Maryland accent in a video where he says “the federal government needs to get out of the way and allow Mont-ah-na to develop a program so we can take care of our folks who have chronic or preexisting conditions.”
Now Matt, I know you are new here, but the only reason folks with pre-existing conditions like asthma, heart disease, or cancer, are able to get insurance is because of that damn federal government. Montana had its shot for the last 120 years or so, I think it was time for the feds to step in.
Then in what I can only imagine was a Clark Kent like quick change, candidate Matt Rosendale went to talk with Steve Daines about health care.

Rosendale’s tweet is a bit ambiguous. He highlights that he was talking with Senators—plural—about health care and then fangirls over a hearing with Defense Sec. Mattis.
I am going to give Rosendale the benefit of the doubt here and assume he knows a Defense Appropriations subcommittee has nothing to do with health care.
Who knows, maybe the Republicans are holding super-secret Appropriations Defense Subcommittee hearings on their AHCA legislation and Matt Rosendale and Sec. Mattis have finally figured out the cure to the American health care system. I won’t hold my breath though.
Maybe Rosendale can fill us all in at a public meeting to discuss what kind of suggestions he was making to the secret Senate Republican health care bill. Again, not going to hold my breath.
I just hope for the taxpayer’s sake that Mr. Rosendale figures out there are easier ways to deliver a letter.
