Tea Party Battling Health Exchange, King Beshear

The Kentucky Tea Party is battling to end the new health insurance exchange before it takes hold in the state, which was forced into place by Governor Steve Beshear, a Democrat.

Beshear simply created an executive order in the manner that Obama does, essentially bypassing the checks and balances in inherent in state and federal governance.

What the Tea Party is looking for is that the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange be dismantled until it is approved by the legislature. To that end they are supporting a bill which would require the exchange be approved before it is implemented by the state.

They are right to demand that, as the last thing Kentucky needs is a king in Frankfort following in the footsteps of Obama by sending out decrees from the capital.
