Cheers for Beshear
For the 300,000 Kentuckians living on the edge of the federal poverty line, Gov. Steve Beshear’s action this week couldn’t come soon enough. And it makes a nice Mother’s Day surprise for everyone without health coverage who fears getting sick or hurt. Kentucky Youth Advocates reports an estimated 162,000 uninsured parents in Kentucky, and expanding Medicaid will provide
coverage to 97,000 of those parents.
