Kentucky ObamaCare dies next week

Senate has votes to cancel Medicaid expansion, shut state exchange

A member of Senate Republican leadership who asked to remain nameless promised today that the effort to defund Gov. Steve Beshear’s ObamaCare will come to a head on the Senate floor next week.

Only 25 House Democrats voted against defunding both the ObamaCare exchange and the Medicaid expansion last week and far less enthusiasm for the federal health reform debacle is expected next week in the Senate.

“Cheerleaders for ObamaCare have been claiming for a year that Kentucky is leading the way in implementing this scam, but I expect that next week we will show that we will lead the way in pulling back from the abyss,” said Tea Party activist David Adams.

“Senate Republicans have no reason to stab House Republicans in the back on ObamaCare, so I expect their support for sanity next week will effectively silence Beshear on the matter,” Adams said.
