    Mitch McConnell can’t kill this ObamaCare defunding effort

    Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear had ten days to veto the General Assembly’s agreement to defund ObamaCare in Kentucky and start a huge fight for today and tomorrow, but he didn’t do it.

    Obamacrat turns profiteer; media yawns

    The Associated Press Frankfort Bureau ran a story today in the Louisville Courier Journal about Kentucky’s largest ObamaCare profiteer, Kentucky Health Cooperative (KYHC) CEO Janie Miller, without mentioning she was responsible for setting up much of the state’s ObamaCare scheme as a Beshear Cabinet official.

    ObamaCare covers abortions in Kentucky

    Kentucky’s health insurance cooperative, the “public option” created by ObamaCare with a massive federal subsidy, covers abortions in violation of state law.

    Kentucky ObamaCare death spiral set

    With less than three weeks before the end of ObamaCare open enrollment in Kentucky, the President’s target rate for exchange sales to young people ages 18 to 34 is hopelessly out of reach.
