Kentucky Dem Gov Candidates Remain Silent On Eliminating Private Health Insurance

With 2020 Democrat presidential contenders quickly adopting Medicare-for-all and the elimination of private insurance as key building blocks for their campaign platforms, Kentucky’s Democrat gubernatorial candidates are refusing to admit to voters where they stand.

Rocky Adkins, Andy Beshear, and Adam Edelen have made no attempt to clarify their positions on the elimination of private health insurance since the idea was put forward by Kamala Harris after she launched her presidential campaign. Now a new Hill-HarrisX survey shows that a mere 13 percent of American voters “prefer a health care system that covers all citizens and doesn’t allow for private plans.”

With thousands of Kentuckians working in the private health insurance industry and many more reliant on the plans they provide, voters deserve an answer: Do Beshear, Adkins, and Edelen support a radically damaging and massively unpopular government takeover of healthcare?
