The absentee Beshear
Kentuckians. Gov. Steve Beshear courts the military to score political points, but has been MIA in dealing with what plagues Kentucky. Kentucky is a welfare state, a bankrupt state.
Beshear, last year you balanced the budget with nonstimulus money that went to prop up unions that support you and President Barack Obama. You paid for Medicaid this year with borrowed money from next year’s budget and you balanced this year’s budget by mortgaging Kentucky’s future.
Beshear, Kentucky is $44 billion in debt and hurting with 10 percent unemployment. Kentucky needs public union benefit reform, whose benefits the taxpayers no longer can afford. Kentucky needs tax reform to attract businesses, to create jobs. And Kentucky needs education reform. Our schools are held captive by high costs and an unrelenting teachers union.
Beshear, no more Band-Aid fixes. Kentucky needs solutions.
