"Kentucky is the only southern state that is enthusiastically implementing Obamacare. Its Democratic governor, Steve Beshear, agreed both to expand Medicaid (an important plank of the reform) and to set up a state-run health-insurance exchange, known as “kynect”. By December 5th nearly 454,000 Kentuckians had undergone preliminary screening to determine eligibility for Medicaid or subsidised coverage, and almost 72,000 had enrolled. Only in Washington state has a larger proportion of people applied for coverage."
