Beshear Fights For Medicaid Expansion

Democrat Andy Beshear offered a vigorous defense of Kentucky’s Medicaid expansion, warning Monday that health care policy is at stake when voters choose between him and Republican Gov. Matt Bevin.After touring an addiction treatment center, Beshear said increasing Medicaid rolls made rehabilitation programs available to more people in a state fighting severe drug-abuse problems.The Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act was set into motion in Kentucky by Beshear’s father, former Gov. Steve Beshear, but Bevin has been a frequent critic of its implementation. It has become a flash point in the state’s combative governor’s race to be decided Nov. 5.
