The U.S. Supreme Court has granted certiorari to hear a challenge to the mandate to purchase healthcare, the heart and soul of Obamacare. This just happened eight minutes ago, so I do not yet know any details.
This is the same challenge that our newly-reelected Attorney General, Jack Conway called too legally frivolous for Kentucky to join. So much for his legal acumen.
Conway is said to have held a big meeting the morning after Election Night last week. The meeting lasted a full two hours. Kentuckians might like to think he was setting goals for his second term as AG, but no: Conway was laying the groundwork for his plan to run for governor.
He spent his first term as AG running for senator, and he will spend his second term running for governor. What a disgrace: the office of Attorney General is too important for a mere seat-warmer. Voters will get exactly what they deserve; Conway made no pretense of even campaigning for the job, and he will perform the job the same way he campaigned, with indifference.
