Matt Bevin Vows To Dismantle Kentucky Health Care Exchange

Bevin reassured Fox & Friends viewers that yes, he will be sure to do harm to their health care.

Kentucky Governor-Elect Matt Bevin took a victory lap Thursday on Fox & Friends, vowing to dismantle Kynect in the name of "hope."

No, really. He told Fox hosts that his election was because he brought hope to Kentuckians who must really hate having access to health care.

Hope. What a cynical SOB.

Here's what's in store for Kentucky:

But emotions are stirring about a candidate elected with a mandate Tuesday who has promised to cut the size of government, rework public pensions, initiate charter schools, adopt a so-called right-to-work law, blasted Obamacare and embraced the cause of Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis.

“The change in Frankfort could be extremely radical. State employees are very concerned,” said state Sen. Julian Carroll, D-Frankfort, a former governor. “But the question of what change we’ve got coming will depend on which Matt Bevin shows up as governor. He went all the way from radical in the primary, to moderate in the general election, to being a peacemaker last night.”

Senate President Robert Stivers, R-Manchester, said although Democrats retain majority control in the House, Bevin’s victory margin of more than 80,000 votes is a mandate that could see passage of much of a Republican agenda stalled under Beshear.

It's really heartbreaking.
