Mitch McConnell's "Unconscionable" Health Care Bill

Released Monday, 26th June 2017
Good episode? Give it some love!
Former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear discusses the health care policy successes in his state, the threat of the Senate's new health care bill, and a new path forward for Democrats with New Republic Senior Editor Brian Beutler.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is just a few votes away from passing legislation that would reduce health insurance coverage by 22 million people.

Ironically, the impact would be most severe in his home state of Kentucky, where the Affordable Care Act covered half a million people—a huge percent of that state’s population.

The person most responsible for that success story is Kentucky’s former governor, Steve Beshear. He joined Primary Concerns by phone from Lexington to discuss GOP efforts to repeal Obamacare, and his prescriptions for a Democratic party revival.
