Democrat Andy Beshear has won the Kentucky governor’s race, ousting sitting Republican Gov. Matt Bevin, and giving Democrats a big win in a conservative state.
It’s a major loss for Republicans in a state where they hold supermajorities in both chambers of the state legislature, both US Senate seats, and five out of the state’s six House seats. Bevin pulled out all the stops to clinch a win; President Donald Trump rallied in Lexington, Kentucky, Monday night ahead of the election to turn out voters. But even that last-ditch effort wasn’t enough — a sign that Trump’s influence isn’t omnipotent.

Hey, kids, didja read the news today? POLITICO is reporting that
Eddie Munster Paul Ryan is scared shitless he will lose reelection in 2018 thinking about putting down his Speaker’s gavel and walking away from D.C. at the end of his term. If the tax cut bill that will enrich the uber-wealthy and destroy the middle class goes through, and he succeeds in decimating Medicare and Medicaid, then he will consider his job done. He wants to go home and jerk off to Ayn Rand documentaries spend more time with his presidential aspirations family. But wait, there’s more!
From CNN Money:
Republicans have wanted to repeal Obamacare for years — but they’ve wanted to overhaul Medicaid for far longer.
They are now getting their chance.
The health care legislation working its way through Congress would do much more than its stated purpose of repealing and replacing Obamacare. It would make the most far-reaching changes and deepest cuts to Medicaid in the program’s 52-year history.
“Medicaid: Sending it back to the states. Capping its growth rate. We’ve been dreaming of this since I’ve been around, since you and I were drinking at a keg,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said in March at an event hosted by the conservative National Review magazine.
Senate Republicans unveiled their version of a bill that would repeal the Affordable Care Act today—and behind that legislation is Pennsylvania’s own Sen. Pat Toomey.
The bill includes cuts to Medicaid that are more severe than the health care legislation passed by House Republicans last month. Compared to the ACA, the House bill would leave 5 million more people who rely on Medicaid uninsured next year, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

It isn’t a surprise, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell kept his health care bill a secret because it is even worse than the House passed Trumpcare bill.
