    Kentucky Gov. lawyers up over Medicaid flap

    Two weeks ago, we uncovered details of Gov. Steve Beshear’s illegal and unconstitutional plans to blow at least $21.5 million of state money on ObamaCare in the first six months of 2014.  Beshear’s own attorney entered details of this plan into the court record, though he apparently didn’t even realize he did it. Having evidence of this illegal activity fall into my lap was somewhat unexpected. Hitting | Read More »

    ObamaCare’s little oasis springs a leak

    Gov. Steve Beshear has said many times Kentucky will incur no costs for the ObamaCare Medicaid expansion until 2017 and state media has unquestioningly repeated the claim many times as well. We know that is false. I just sent the following email to Vicki Goins, Policy and Budget Analyst for the Health and Family Services Cabinet in Gov. Beshear’s Office of State Budget Director: Vicki, | Read More »

    “Free” Medicaid busts Kentucky budget

    Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear says he needs $21 million for Christmas and he thinks you are Santa Claus. In a document filed quietly with the Regulations Compiler in the basement of the Kentucky State Capitol Annex late last month, Beshear stated that ObamaCare will cost the state $21.5 million in the first six months of calendar year 2014 just for administrative expenses related to the | Read More »

    Kentuckians can’t jump (this)

    Kentucky Democrats may soon turn against ObamaCare in the interests of self-preservation. If Kentucky’s state-run health insurance exchange survives a legal challenge headed now to the Commonwealth’s Supreme Court, it will then face a stiff immediate challenge in January. Under KRS 12.028, the 2014 General Assembly must ratify Governor Steve Beshear’s Executive Order 2013-0418, which belatedly “created” the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange to run ObamaCare | Read More »

    Ditch kitsch, switch on Mitch

    It is time for Sen. Rand Paul to distance himself from Mitch McConnell. Sen. McConnell made news this week for calling conservatives “traitors,” losing an already questionable endorsement from an out-of-state tea party, and continuing to push Republicans to give up the battle against ObamaCare. Rand Paul does not need McConnell badly enough to put up with this craziness. “Rand’s political career got its first big | Read More »

    These health rates are subsidized

    A 25 year old single Franklin County, Kentucky non-smoker with a $25,000 annual income purchasing a Humana Silver plan effective January 1, 2014 will pay $144.17 per month for a $3250 deductible plan that pays all approved medical expenses after a $4750 maximum out of pocket limit is reached and all applicable federal subsidies are applied. Humana currently offers on ehealthinsurance.com a $3500 deductible plan with $3500 maximum out of | Read More »

    Whack-a-McConnell Wednesday in Louisville

    Hundreds of concerned Kentucky citizens will converge on Sen. Mitch McConnell’s Louisville office at 11am Wednesday morning to shake him up on ObamaCare. At issue is Sen. McConnell’s insistence on allowing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to remove continuing resolution ObamaCare defunding language with only a majority of senators, rather than 60. McConnell’s actions, in keeping with his long-standing fight against conservatives on this, would make defunding ObamaCare harder. McConnell is | Read More »

    Kentucky taxes truth-telling on ObamaCare

    Humana sent letters out to health insurance customers in Kentucky this summer warning them that ObamaCare will cause their premiums to explode upward in January and advising them how to limit harm to their personal finances caused by radical left-wing politicians. The Kentucky Department of Insurance fined Humana $65,000 in August for their efforts, in every way punishing them for telling the truth. Gov. Steve | Read More »

    Kentucky Supreme Court ObamaCare battle starts

    Kentucky’s tea party challenge to state implementation of ObamaCare took a big step forward today with the first in a series of arguments to reach the Commonwealth’s Supreme Court. David Adams said the case centered on preventing “improper and illegal use of government powers to effect an optional expansion of Kentucky’s Medicaid program under the Affordable Care Act.” Adams is petitioning the Court to transfer | Read More »

    Will Kentucky dump its employees on “exchange?”

    Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear is quietly completing plans to throw state employees, including the seven Supreme Court justices he needs to approve his illegal ObamaCare implementation actions, into the state health insurance “exchange.” State employees are just now being notified of massive premium rate increases for 2014 caused by ObamaCare, and Beshear’s hope is apparently to attempt to capitalize on the confusion of the run-up to | Read More »
