Kentucky Making Obamacare Work

"Relations between President Obama and Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear have not always been friendly... But leading one of the nation's poorest, sickest states, Beshear has improbably overseen one of the most successful rollouts of Obama's troubled healthcare overhaul and become, deep in his long public career, a hero to Democrats grasping to find a redeeming figure amid the political wreckage," the Los Angeles Times reports.

"He's an unlikely champion, not least because Kentucky's two U.S. senators are both implacable opponents of the program."

Said Beshear: "I knew if I was going to make a huge difference in the health status of Kentucky, it was going to take some kind of transformational tool to do that, and that's what the Affordable Care Act is for me."
