Creation of the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange subjects Kentuckians to billions of dollars in unnecessary taxes, fees and regulatory expenses for no real benefit. While Gov. Beshear may not like that description of his handiwork and may not even agree with it, as a lame duck governor he doesn't really have to care beyond the embarrassment of losing court battles.
But Candidate Grimes has to care a lot. It isn't illegal for a Kentucky Secretary of State to accept a bogus document like this, but as a would-be Senator, she should be expected to talk about it every time she, uh, raises her head.
Kentucky's pro-ObamaCare contingent has been eerily quiet about the legal fate of their grand plans. Will their new fearless leader now come to their defense?
