It seems that Governor Bevin has covered just about every reason a person can have not to be able to afford required payments as well as being drug tested. So basically, anyone who is not a robot, including care givers either must stand at his command to be the "type" of person that fits his "decent" enough to have medical coverage they can afford, or too bad for ya! If anything at all happens, it needs to be with the attitude of HELPING people instead of making them suffer which seems to be his approach. Inclusion instead of exclusion is a better approach. Even though he has a staunch military style approach to living, really, Kentucky consists of lots of poor people and some have very valid reasons as to why they cannot pay a demand premium. Hey! There are HUMANS out here in need!
