I can attest that what you say is true. I know someone myself that makes over 100 grand at Southeasy.

Dismantling Kynect will prove to be a challenge. It will cost Ky a $23 million one time chatge to dismantle Kynect. Some of which will be made up by not sharing the cost of the plan. So....that isn't really a concern. The federal government will increase it's enrollment charge from 1% to 3.5% next year. A fee that will not go away with dismantling Kynect.

Getting rid of Kynect will not lower premiums of the rest of Kentucky's insured not covered by Medicaid. It will likely increase them, as insurers within the federal exchanges will cost shift to keep their exchange participants. If your profit is threatened by one product in your line, you have to make it up elsewhere.

Nor will getting rid of Kynect automatically cause the other state run exchanges to go away. Each state will evaluate the cost/benefit of their exchanges and act accordingly.

However getting rid of State exchanges will eliminate one step in making a single payor system a viable alternative to unmanaged spiraling health care cost in this country. Something I am for.

There's a couple up there that aren't qualified to bag groceries, let alone spend most of the year warping minds and indoctrinating people.

You messed up the decimal point Cate. It's estimated to cost 230,000.

Bevin was elected to straighten out about forty years worth of shit... Shut the fuck up, sit back and let the man do the job he was elected to do... Any Harlan county housewife can tell you balancing a budget is painful for somebody... If you ain't satisfied, vote him out...
Your government is your master!!! Resistance is illegal, and futile!!!

I like Matt Bevin's budget. Of course Democrats wouldn't like it because he's trying to cut spending.

What is Matt Bevin's plan to increase high paying jobs in Ky? The railroad tracks that carried coal out of Harlan Co. Are being removed. Wind and Solar energy alternatives are gaining national and global market share daily. Natural gas has replaced coal in a good many U.S. power plants.

So....how exactly is Matt Bevins going to restore high paying jobs people in the coal fields have lost? How is Matt Bevins going to make the market pay more to burn coal, when natural gas is much cheaper to pay those higher jobs? How is Matt Bevins going to convince the market to pay more for U.S. steel when other countries are producing and selling it much cheaper than it can be produced in the U.S.?

Governor Matt Bevin is hiring a private law firm to investigate ex Governor Steve Beshear in what he called pay-to-play, or pay-to-stay.

Kentucky politics at it's finest. If you want to sit at the dinner table you must provide a gratuity.

Might not be no free lunches, but it looks like someone might end up in detention.
