Opinions are not the same as facts
Kenneth L. Randall’s opinion “Judge Andy Beshear by his actions” was very insulting to Andy Beshear. All he did was say, “Judge this man based on things I do not like.” His argument is a typical political cultist point of view. Whether Conservative Republican, Republican, Liberal Democrat or Democrat, fanatics of each group believe they are absolutely right about their opinions. But it is still their opinion and not facts.
Andy Beshear is a Democrat running against a Conservative Republican Matt Bevin. If Randall wants to discuss values and character. let us discuss the fact Matt Bevin tried to disenroll 400,000 Kentuckians off Medicaid and have them reapply using a system not yet created. Is that common sense? Take the money away and then create a new system.
Also, I have yet to see any numbers from Bevin’s office as to how many able-bodied Kentuckians are on Medicaid that needs to be thrown out of the system. Perhaps Randall will let us know since he is promoting the Conservative Republican propaganda talking point. All other states who took Bevin’s plan for Medicaid have failed their state’s Medicaid recipients. They canceled people from the Medicaid aid who were supposed to get the aid.
I see no Kentucky values in Matt Bevin’s Medicaid assaults. Kentucky has had a rural farming family economy for generations. We raised tobacco and had coal mining industries. But things change. Bevin ran on a platform to reform Medicaid and to fix the pension plan. He failed on both. He has had the state House and Senate and there are no solution to these issues. But Randall wants to smear Andy Beshear instead of criticizing Conservative Republicans running this state.
Matt Bevin wants to push people off Medicaid not because they need it but because he does not want to pay for it. When he was elected, we were a poor state. You do not get pensions for farming. Budgeting people off aid is wrong and un-Christian.
