    Kentucky’s ObamaCare fight set to expand

    On Monday May 20, two things will happen that could result in preventing Kentucky from being the only state to reject Obama in the 2012 election but then implement both a state run ObamaCare health insurance exchange and the ObamaCare Medicaid expansion. The first hearing in Franklin County Circuit court of Adams v. Beshear, over shutting down the Kentucky Exchange, will take place at 9am | Read More »

    Kentucky legal challenge on ObamaCare exchange expands

    Late this past week, plaintiffs in Adams v. Beshear picked up vital new weapons and added a novel legal approach which might be fun to watch. First, Adams v. Beshear became Adams, Cloyd and Durand v. Beshear. Michael Dean, of Irvine, Kentucky, then joined the plaintiffs as attorney on the case. Some credit Dean’s aggressive legal tactics with prematurely ending the political career of former state Senator | Read More »

    Update on lawsuit against ObamaCare in Kentucky

    Two very active tea party leaders in Kentucky have joined the lawsuit to force Governor Steve Beshear to follow Kentucky law and stop trying to set up the ObamaCare health insurance “exchange” without legislative approval.

    Mitch McConnell folds on gun rights

    U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell broke his recent silence on guns this morning with an anti-Second Amendment statement inconsistent with the beliefs of his constituents. “I believe the government should focus on keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals and those with mental issues that could cause them to be a threat to society,” McConnell said in a press release. This is the same kind | Read More »

    ObamaCare fight in Kentucky headed to court

    Republican operative David Adams filed a lawsuit this week in Franklin County Circuit Court to force a shutdown of the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange, the state-run option for ObamaCare in the Bluegrass State.

    Can Mitch McConnell buy votes with trinkets?

    When running for re-election in 2008, Sen. Mitch McConnell campaigned heavily on his ability to bring home bacon. He proved the point by voting for bailouts and massive piles of debt most Republicans realize we can’t afford. As the wind has shifted, so, of course, has Sen. McConnell. In fact, he took a break recently from caving in on the next debt ceiling deal to post a | Read More »

    In Kentucky, Paul and Massie surround five lessers

    The federal government won’t be shut down next week in order to protect ObamaCare funding. And that’s supposed to be the good news. At least that’s the case if you get your Republican talking points from Senator Mitch McConnell. It’s a different story, however, if you ask Senator Rand Paul and Representative Thomas Massie. In the last 24 hours, Senate and House bipartisan majorities both passed the | Read More »

    Make GOP the party of cannabis

    The late Gatewood Galbraith’s ardent advocacy of marijuana and hemp was easy to lampoon, but the endurance of his message can revolutionize American politics for those who now embrace it. In short, the Republican party should seek to become the party of cannabis.    Most opinions about repairing the Republican Party now focus on tweaking messaging or more aggressively courting various demographic groups. This approach | Read More »

    Kentucky politicians sabotage young entrepreneur

    Competitors to a growing Lexington, Kentucky company would like to see Wildcat Moving forced to load up their trucks and their 31 employees and get out of the state. Unfortunately for all of us, some Frankfort politicians in both parties appear more than eager to make it so. At issue is a bizarre Kentucky law requiring anyone wishing to start a moving company to receive | Read More »

    Mitch McConnell freaking over a tweet

    Readers will awaken Sunday to national news coverage of the most powerful Republican in Washington D.C. hurling a boulder at two liberal Louisville activists for suggesting erroneously on Twitter that his wife is from China. This is what passes for the “ultimate outrage” at a time in which we strain at petty slights but swallow whole imaginary fiscal crises like the sequester and big government blunders like providing funding for | Read More »
