Ask Stumbo/Stivers their ObamaCare intentions

If the legislature does not provide funding for the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange in 2014, it cannot function in 2015 when federal funding is gone. We would then default to the federal exchange, which lacks proper authorization to impose tax penalties and reward subsidies.
Given their track record for dishonesty and corruption, I suspect Greg Stumbo and Robert Stivers may try to slip funding into the budget without alerting rank and file legislators or the public. This matter has received no media coverage, of course, and simply asking the Speaker and the President about it may yield an interesting story.
