Interesting set of survey results here on Kentucky, Obamacare, and Kynect.

Very short version?  Kentuckians hate Obamacare, want to keep Kynect, don’t want to cut back Medicaid… and yet, they just decisively elected a guy who only agrees with them on the first point.  If not-going-to-be-Governor Jack Conway is reading this article, it’s probably with a bottle of bourbon in his fist.

Meanwhile, Matt Bevin? He’s probably reading it and shrugging.  The people of Kentucky did elect him, after all. And it’s not like they didn’t know what he was going to be doing, right?

Obamacare’s Cadillac Tax will probably be the first thing to go.

This test vote is pretty glaring: “The Senate voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to repeal ObamaCare’s “Cadillac tax” on high-cost health plans, a rare area of bipartisan agreement around the healthcare law.” By overwhelmingly the Hill means… well, overwhelmingly: 90-10, to be precise. It’s an amendment to the Senate bill repealing Obamacare, which means that it’s probably not going to actually take place just yet. After all, the general assumption is that Barack Obama will veto the repeal, and 55 Senators does not equal 67. Nonetheless; it’s a big signal that the current crop of Democrats aren’t quite as eager to die for Obamacare as the last few crops were. To quote Larry Niven: think of it as evolution in action.

Also, I love the picture that the Hill chose.

They’re getting tired of this guy, too.
