Oh, Kentucky

"In calendar year 2014, Medicaid claims data show more than 159,500 preventive dental services; nearly 51,300 breast cancer screenings; and more than 35,600 colorectal cancer screenings were performed – more than double the number who received those services in 2013. Increases in screenings were likewise seen in Medicaid claims data for cholesterol, cervical cancer and diabetes."

"I don’t give a riff of your party. I don’t give a riff who you voted for. We are one Kentucky."

"I’m aware of the historical significance. People point it out … Really, I just never think about it."

I love #throwbackThursday.

  1. Here's how Jefferson captured Bevin's idea:

    "{E}very difference of opinion is not a difference of principle. We have called by different names brethren of the same principle. We are all Republicans, we are all Federalists. If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve this Union or to change its republican form, let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it."
