Constitutional crisis in Kentucky won't go away

The Kentucky Supreme Court has neglected to expedite review of two ObamaCare lawsuits in December, dragging into 2014 a constitutional crisis that will not just go away.
"There is no way the General Assembly will ratify Gov. Beshear's second executive order creating the ObamaCare exchange, just like they didn't ratify the first expired one which set off this crisis," said David Adams, plaintiff in both suits. "They won't fund the exchange in the budget session starting in January, which means the exchange goes away at the end of 2014 anyway. Governor Beshear will start illegally funding the Medicaid expansion in January 2014, probably leading to a new lawsuit. Only the Kentucky Supreme Court can restore the rule of law in our Commonwealth. Failure to act is not acceptable."
