New GOP ad takes on Beshear on health care issue

The GOP commercial lambasts Beshear for espousing "radical views" on health care.

The Associated Press reports:

A new Republican attack ad slams Democrat Andy Beshear for backing the Affordable Care Act and opposing Gov. Matt Bevin's efforts to impose work requirements for some Medicaid recipients — the latest sign that health care looms large in Kentucky's race for governor.

The TV ad backed by the Republican Governors Association overlaps a Beshear campaign commercial in which the Democratic challenger touts his efforts to protect health coverage for pre-existing conditions as attorney general and promises to do the same if elected governor.

The GOP commercial lambasts Beshear for espousing "radical views" on health care.

...

The new GOP ad characterizes that law as a "Washington takeover" of health care that resulted in "too many families paying more but getting less."

"Andy Beshear supported the government takeover of health care," the ad says. "Now Beshear supports giving taxpayer-funded health care benefits to people who can work but choose not to."

Beshear calls health care a "basic human right" and says he'll push to insert ACA consumer protections into state law if he's elected governor. The health care law maintained job-based and private health coverage.
