Lindeen and her staff have answered hundreds of questions from Montanans since she launched her Obamacare education website,, in early August. The site allows Montanans to ask their questions directly to the commissioner.

“Montanans want real information, not spin,” Lindeen said. “I don’t have a dog in the Obamacare fight. I just want Montanans to know how it works so they can make the best choice possible for themselves, their families or their small business.”

The town hall meetings will be an opportunity for Lindeen to speak directly to Montanans about what Obamacare means in our state and answer questions.

I noticed that Helena is not on the list, why is that? Too many state, federal, union employees exempted from Obamacare? Oh, I forgot, Gov. Schweitzer set up special Health care exchanges for state employees without state approval! Did you notice that three cities get to have two sessions & one of those sessions are planned at the college or universities. This is to make sure the youth sign up to the program so that they can fund this new health care for everyone. Obamacare is based on the backs of the youth to make it work. It will be interesting to see if they youth is interested in knowing how this works & to spend their money on it. Let’s watch what the press prints!
