You’ve probably seen this already, but I found it fascinating:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, but he would not say Friday what that would mean for the 413,000 Kentuckians who have health insurance through the state’s health care exchange.
McConnell told reporters that the fate of Kynect – Kentucky’s state-run health insurance exchange – is not linked to the federal health care law. But the exchange would not exist if not for the federal law that created it.
Mitch figured he could just waltz into his home state, push out this turd of a lie, and the clueless press would let it sit out there, stinking, for a cycle or two. Then Alison Lundergan Grimes would call him a liar, and the he-said/she-said would go on for a few more cycles.
Instead, Adam Beam, who’s the “Kentucky Statehouse Correspondent” of the AP, dispatched Mitch’s bullshit in one sentence. Mitch is going to have to come up with some fresh new lie because this one just got shot to pieces.
