How did Matt Bevin lose to this guy? Kentucky: what were y’all thinking? Want a do-over now or what? Unfortunately, Andy Beshear will be in office for at least another couple of years.
Gov. Andy Beshear announced Monday a commitment to provide health insurance for all black people in Kentucky, part of what he calls a push to correct racial inequalities in the state.
Beshear offered few details on the initiative, calling it a “multi-faceted campaign” and adding that he believes health care is a basic human right and that he hopes to “eventually make sure that there’s coverage for everybody.”
An estimated 8.4 percent of Kentucky’s 4.4 million population are black, according to the most recent data provided in July 2019 by the US Census Bureau.
He said, “In our health care system, the inequalities have been … exposed by this COVID-19 epidemic, and the results of inequality and health care have been shown: It’s death. We see African Americans dying at twice the rate that they make up of the (state) population, and it simply can’t be allowed to continue any longer.”
