Mitch McConnell, Partisan Hack And Liar

Mitch McConnellThe ACA (Obama Care) has been a great success in Kentucky.  So what is Mitch McConnell who is facing a tough general election race to do?  He tries to have his cake and eat it too and lie.  Well a Kentucky newspaper has called him out.

That doesn’t quite add up to the editorial board of the Lexington Herald-Leader.

It doesn’t add up because without Obamacare Kynect would not be sustainable.

“Repeal the federal law, which McConnell calls ‘Obamacare,’ and the state exchange would collapse,” the editorial said on Wednesday. “Kynect could not survive without the ACA’s insurance reforms, including no longer allowing insurance companies to cancel policies when people get sick or deny them coverage because of pre-existing conditions, as well as the provision ending lifetime limits on benefit payments. (Kentucky tried to enact such reforms in the 1990s and found out we were too small a market to do it alone.)”

The editorial goes on to say that Kynect wouldn’t be able to survive without the federal funding from Obamacare.

So once again McConnell has demonstrated what most of us already knew, he is nothing more than a not too bright partisan hack.  Will this be enough to defeat him in November?   To early to tell.
