    The Kentucky General Assembly today almost unanimously voted to defund ObamaCare in the Commonwealth as it mandated that no general fund dollars can be spent on the Medicaid expansion or health benefit exchange in the next biennium. “I really appreciated the widespread agreement among Kentucky’s representatives that state funds should not be spent on ObamaCare,” said David Adams, an ardent opponent of the federal health | Read More »

    Kentucky ObamaCare dies next week

    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.

    #Defund effort rises in Kentucky

    The Kentucky Senate has called a special meeting of the Appropriations and Revenue committee for tonight after the session adjourns.

    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.

    Two months till ObamaCare implodes in Kentucky

    Left-wing talking point manufacturer ProPublica picked out four states who have made particular messes of their ObamaCare exchanges and wrote an article about them.

    ObamaCare judge would rewrite everything

    A federal District Court ruling today ignored the plain language of ObamaCare and claimed people in states who opted out of setting up their own exchanges face tax penalties under the law, even though the “Affordable Care Act” statute specifically excludes them. United States District Judge Paul L. Friedman ruled that the phrase “established by the State” means “established by the federal government, too” in this case because construction | Read More »

    Not just Rand Paul’s son in Kentucky

    Since Kentucky started taking applications for ObamaCare and forcing most applicants into Medicaid, the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange has been excluding disability payments from income used to determine Medicaid eligibility. That changed last Thursday and it’s a big problem for Governor Steve Beshear. Under the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid eligibility is determined by a formula based on taxable income. The formula counts disability income as | Read More »

    Were 280,000 Kentuckians abducted by aliens?

    The initial group of Kentucky citizens forced off their health insurance by ObamaCare have less than two weeks left to sign up on Kynect to avoid a lapse in coverage on January 1. Where the hell are they? “Kentucky’s media is missing the story of the unaffordability of the “Affordable Care Act” in addition to missing the story about Gov. Beshear illegally and ill-advisedly throwing | Read More »
