1. Why Kentucky Couldnt Kill Obamacare: A Lesson for Congress

so true....


As congressional Republicans meet this week to gut Barack Obama’s signature health-care law, they can look for guidance to Kentucky, where a big political promise met with reality to force the type of compromise national lawmakers might face.

The result: a taxpayer-funded insurance program that looks a lot like Obamacare.

President Donald Trump, who vowed to kill the Affordable Care Act as one of his first moves, signed an executive order Friday declaring that his administration will seek the “prompt repeal” of the law and that the government should prepare to “afford the states more flexibility and control to create a more free and open healthcare market.” No specifics were provided.

Kentucky Republican Matt Bevin ran for governor on a platform devoted almost exclusively to killing Obamacare, including its expansion of Medicaid insurance to the poor. He didn’t do it. Following in the steps of eight Republican governors who sought to expand Medicaid without appearing to do so, he applied for federal permission to add Republican-friendly tweaks to the program instead.
