Are you following what's going on in Kentucky when it comes to the healthcare debate?  Last week, Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont visited the Bluegrass to speak about healthcare. Kentucky Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul have been vocal as they're key players in the healthcare debate. Kentucky is facing a major budget shortfall.  And our nation is trillions of dollars in debt. This is why the government taking on more financial obligation is unwise and unsustainable. In a short commentary like this we can't answer all of the hard questions or pose significant solutions. But we can urge you to pay attention to this important conversation, be informed, do your own investigation and let your Government representatives know what you think. After all, its your government.
