Despite attempts by leftists like Richard Beliles (Is there even anyone else who works for the anti-freedom Common Cause in Kentucky? He’s the only name ever mentioned) and lukewarm responses by House Banking and Insurance Committee Chairman Jeff Greer, D-Brandenburg, Senate Bill 3 has passed the House Banking and Insurance Committee.
It allows a Florida-based, Christians-only health care ministry to resume in the Bluegrass State. Medi-Share was shut down in Kentucky last year by Franklin Circuit Judge Thomas Wingate. If the legislation wins final passage, Insurance Commissioner Sharon Clark has said she will go back to court to have the ban lifted.
Nearly 800 people participate in the program, which is a cheaper option than traditional private insurance.
Is it a coincidence that this policy proposal was resurrected from the legislative grave after the Bluegrass Institute called for grassroots participation to let lawmakers know you believe in Christians having the option of helping other Christians with their health care costs? I doubt it.
