Earlier this week the leading Republican and Democratic candidates in Kentucky’s U.S. Senate race released their opinions regarding the passage of health care reform. You can read their statements here.
I asked how the candidate’s position on health care reform will impact your vote. Here are some of your responses.

Based solely on these statements, Mr. Conway would have my vote. I appreciate the progress being made by the administration today!

How can Daniel Mongiardo honestly argue that Republicans failed to work with Democrats on healthcare?
I believe that it is the other way around. The Obama, Pelosi mob rammed it through on Sunday night through back room Chicago style tactics. This was in spite of all polls indicating that the American people are opposed to this government takeover of what should otherwise be our personal choice.
Sorry Daniel, but I won't support you, or any other candidate who wants to take away more of my freedoms as an American. A poll was released this very morning (Thursday) showing that 68% of the respondents want the Republicans to fight this take over.
The next elections can't come soon enough for most Americans who are "fed up" with socialists!

Lisa, If you call this socialist "healthcare?) take over of our lives progress, then you aren't looking beyond the end of your nose! Are you employed? Have you ever attempted to operate a small business and try to retain employees who can quit one day with no advance notice and go to the nearest welfare office the next day and receive hand outs simply because they don't have to work? Raise a family? Send children to college? Pay taxes? Deal with government bureaucrats? after you do all of the above then let us know what your views are!

Don't care about their opinions; it's their actions that are important...if they voted for socialized healthcare that will be my benchmark for voting them out.

agrees with Judy.

Why isn't Kentucky joining 14 other states who have filed suit against the Washington mob? It is apparent that our so called leaders in Frankfort, including our governor and attorney general lack the back bone to express our opposition to forcing us to purchase something that we are opposed to.
Hey, Stevie and Jack, your partisanship is showing!
Do you have opinion? Let me know your thoughts.
