About

(TPM) Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on Monday night he wants to repeal Obamacare "root and branch" but keep the law's state-based insurance exchange in Kentucky, called Kynect. "I think it's fine to have a website. Yeah," he said during the first and only scheduled Kentucky Senate debate with Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes, pressed on whether he wants to keep Kynect. Kynect is the portal which funnels the Obamacare subsidies that have insured some 500,000 Kentuckians in the last year on the private insurance market or Medicaid expansion. It is well-liked in the state even though Obamacare polls poorly.
