To: Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Shortly thereafter, Bevin announced plans to eliminate Kentucky's healthcare exchange and transition to the federal exchange program. The reason behind this move that Kentucky residents were paying taxes to support the federal and commonwealth exchanges. By eliminating the commonwealth exchange, it will save taxpayers and the commonwealth government.
Not correct. That is indeed a secondary benefit. But the reason for doing this is that Breshear, IN VIOLATION OF THE KY CONSTITUTION, issued an EO to create the exchange, and this illegality should be corrected. This is clearly a legislative function, not an executive one in Kentucky. Breshear knew this, he knew that the republicans did not have the votes to stop his illegal EO. He also knew (correctly it turns out) that the activist courts would side with him when the Republicans sued him.
