U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell and his chief Republican challenger, Louisville businessman Matt Bevin, have spent a considerable amount of their public remarks and commercial airtime bashing the Affordable Care Act.
Bevin has even tried to contrast himself with McConnell by saying the Senate Republican leader hasn’t done enough to block or repeal the Affordable Care Act.
As for the alternative, well, McConnell and Bevin seem to want to prescribe the same fixes to the U.S. health care system. Here’s what McConnell outlined during a Nov. 12, 2013, press conference about health care regarding his suggestions and what Bevin wants to see done, which he most recently told reporters Wednesday during a stop in Carrollton:
Below the Fold
Cabinet for Health and Family Services-backed bill deletes several commissions and numerous required reports
Majority of Kentuckians not fearful of losing insurance; Congressional Budget Office says repeal will raise costs, leave millions without insurance
Gov. Bevin appoints new University of Louisville board, renaming most from previous reorganization attempt
