Beshear in default on new ObamaCare lawsuit

Gov. Steve Beshear's ObamaCare attorney Patrick Hughes has not yet responded to an email this morning asking why he failed to respond by yesterday's deadline to a Franklin Circuit Court lawsuit challenging illegal executive branch spending on Kynect, the state's ObamaCare bureaucracy.

"Seven hundred and fifty thousand new Kentuckians on Medicaid we can't afford and a decimated individual health insurance market combined with abuse of executive powers and constitutional violations demand answers from Kentucky's top Obamacrat," said David Adams, plaintiff in Franklin Circuit Court case 14-CI-1337. "Beshear needs to come clean now so we can start cleaning up his ObamaCare mess."

At the start of ObamaCare implementation in Kentucky, which Beshear insisted on pursuing without legislative approval as state law requires, he claimed there were 640,000 uninsured Kentuckians. He now touts a Gallup poll showing there are 528,000 uninsured Kentuckians while also sticking to an outdated enrollment figure of 521,000 in Kentucky ObamaCare for most of which we are spending current state dollars to cover with Medicaid. By his own figures, 78% of Kentuckians signing up for ObamaCare were previously covered by private health insurance.
