As of today, 402,000 people in Kentucky have health insurance because of Obamacare. The state extended the deadline for enrollments until midnight tonight, and 30,000 people signed up in the last week alone.
At the beginning of this week, we found out that 40 percent of Kentucky's uninsured population had gotten coverage through Kynect, the state's exchange. With the 30,000 people who signed up since those numbers were released Monday, that percentage could very likely increase.
That's 402,000 people in his home state McConnell wants thrown out of the health care market; 402,000 of his own constituents he would sacrifice in order to win his primary and try to hold onto his seat.
And he says it's Obamacare that has to go.
