Define Andy Beshear by his actions
I have a simple question regarding the upcoming Kentucky governor’s race: Who does current Attorney General Andy Beshear really want to represent, today’s Democratic Party or the people of Kentucky? His actions over the past four years as the state’s attorney general should answer that question, but let’s take a look at his positions and endorsements.
First, Andy Beshear has shown he is as dedicated to protection of the abortion industry as his predecessor’s were to slavery in the 1800s. This has earned him the endorsements of both Planned Parenthood and NARAL. Unfortunately, his passion to protect the “right to choose” doesn’t extend to the 2nd Amendment. This year, the NRA gave him a 0 percent rating while giving Gov. Matt Bevin a perfect score of 100 percent.
When Gov. Bevin proposed legislation banning sanctuary cities in Kentucky, Andy Beshear was quick to criticize. Perhaps Beshear’s campaign slogan should be “Illegal Aliens First,” which truly would put him in step with his party.
When it comes to Medicaid reform, Andy Beshear again has opposed the common sense changes proposed by Gov. Bevin. Imagine his outrage at the very thought of able-bodied people being required to work like the rest of us to receive their taxpayer-funded health care. But then, if people his party has trapped in poverty actually starting working and taking care of themselves, what would they need the Democrats for? Again, this shows Andy Beshear wants to represent his party’s radical agenda, not us.
Now that you know where he stands, where do you?
