    ObamaCare blowing up in Kentucky

    Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear’s attempt to ram ObamaCare down the throats of an electorate who rejected Barack Obama resoundingly twice is, unsurprisingly, not going well. Internal chaos at the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange, the Department of Insurance, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, and the Kentucky Democratic Party is masked only superficially by bureaucratic purring about how great ObamaCare is going to be and | Read More »

    Cooking ObamaCare’s books in Kentucky

    The Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange (KHBE) plans to introduce misleading insurance rate information today damaging the quality of public discourse about health reform and attempting to prejudice citizens’ legal efforts to stop Frankfort’s illegal takeover of healthcare in the Commonwealth. The KHBE attempts to irresponsibly and misleadingly conflate 2013 small group health premiums with 2014 individual market premiums inside the exchange to falsely suggest that | Read More »

    Yes, these Kentucky Democrats have Grey Poupon

    Paying an average salary of over $120,000 a year for state workers to run a health insurance web site supposedly created to save consumers money isn’t sitting too well with some Kentuckians. That’s total annual compensation of over 15 million dollars for 119 employees and contractors of the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange, created in Frankfort to implement much of the federal health reform law known | Read More »

    An open letter to President Barack Obama from Kentucky

    President Barack Obama The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue Washington D.C. 20500 Dear Mr. President, We need your help with a unique problem in Kentucky. As you probably know, the Bluegrass State is the only state in the nation to vote against you twice and then take steps to implement both a state-run exchange and the optional Medicaid expansion. While that may not present much | Read More »

    Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear shows America why he doesn’t belong to Mensa

    Kentucky is the only state in the nation to vote against Obama in 2012 and then adopt both major optional provisions of ObamaCare. Fortunately, Kentucky’s Constitution prohibits the governor from unilaterally creating new bureaucracies such as a state-run health benefit exchange. So that’s why some Kentucky tea partiers are suing to cancel his actions. In the first court hearing yesterday, Beshear’s attorney called into question | Read More »

    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. Sarah Durand, President of the Louisville Tea Party, has represented liberty issues on the state and national level extremely well for several years. Dawn Cloyd would probably be president of | Read More »

    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. Governor Steve Beshear’s immediate response suggests he knows he has a problem. He said through a spokeswoman the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Kentucky grants him authority to create a new bureaucracy | Read More »
