GOP candidate breaks from pack against ObamaCare

Kentucky must shut down its ObamaCare exchange and GOP gubernatorial candidate Will T. Scott will do that on his first day in office, making him the only candidate holding this position.

"The only thing we get out of surrendering on ObamaCare is Barack Obama's appreciation," Scott said. "My primary opponents already gave up that fight last summer telling the Chamber of Commerce what they wanted to hear. I got in this race to provide leadership, not to go with the flow. The only thing we are getting out of a state-run ObamaCare exchange is the privilege of paying for it. When we shut ours down, the feds will come in and pay for the whole thing. And if the U.S. Supreme Court rules against Obama this summer, the law falls apart completely for the three dozen states without a state exchange. If I'm elected, we will be one of them." 

"I say 'no ObamaCare today, no ObamaCare tomorrow, no ObamaCare ever.'"

Will T. Scott: $34 billion is enough debt

Frankfort Democrats are circling their wagons around plans to plunge Kentucky $3.3 billion deeper into debt to cover years of state pension mismanagement, choosing to ignore the realities that massive taxation or more debt are not solutions to the pension system. Republican gubernatorial candidate Will T. Scott says enough is enough.

"They are just moving debt from one pile to another and, worse than that, if we do this for KTRS we will have to do it for KERS too so that means at least six billion," Scott said. "These same people are pushing casino gambling but they want to spend that revenue on more new programs and that's wrong. The only way to expand gambling in Kentucky is to mandate in the Constitution that ninety five percent of the money goes to fix our $40 billion pension problem."

"Kentucky has the worst pension problem of any state and Frankfort is still trying to poke the problem with a stick. The growing chorus of more debt, more debt, and even more debt isn’t a solution. I'm running for governor because Kentucky has a promise to keep that runs a lot deeper than allowing politicians to vote themselves wealth from taxpayers' pockets."

Misstating my case won't get rid of me







DAVID ADAMS                                                                                           PLAINTIFF


V.                                                        MOTION TO RECONSIDER



STEVEN L. BESHEAR, GOVERNOR, et al.                                          DEFENDANTS




            Plaintiff moves the Court to reconsider its order filed in this case December 22, 2014 to correct multiple errors. The fundamental mistake from which others flow is found in the following sentence in the Court’s ruling: “No funds for the Exchange are appropriated from the General Fund or Road Fund as alleged by Plaintiff. Even taking all of Plaintiff’s allegations as true, Plaintiff has not stated a claim for relief.”

            Plaintiff alleged the spending in question is not legal and requests that, as such, it must not be allowed by the Court. This is both a legitimate claim for relief and an allegation that can be proven true and entering the Executive Branch Budget into evidence does nothing to change that. Again, from Plaintiff’s Response to Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss,” “State Group Health Insurance Funds for state employees exist in General Funds, whose forbidden appropriations present an inescapable problem for state employees charged with implementing “the ACA.” Even if all other legal problems with the attempted implementation of the “Affordable Care Act” are ignored out of hand, such as the multiple executive orders and constitutional and statutory problems in KRS 12.028 and Kentucky Constitution Sections 47, 180 and 230 with moving, spending and/or adding to Kentucky Access funds, this one cannot be.

            Plaintiff again respectfully requests the Court to reconsider its ruling in this case.


                                                                                                Respectfully submitted,
