Former Governor of Kentucky Steve Beshear gave the Democratic Party’s rebuttal to President Donald Trump’s speech to the joint session of Congress. The rebuttal was given from a diner in Lexington, KT.
Beshear had an inclusive message to begin with; “I am a proud Democrat, but first and foremost, I am a proud Republican, and Democrat and mostly, American.”
A passionate defender of the Affordable Care Act, Beshear warned against it’s repeal stating “…this isn’t a game, it’s life and death for people.” He further commented, “But just who are these 22 million Americans, including 500,000 people right here in Kentucky, who now have health care that didn’t have it before? Look, they’re not aliens from some distant planet … They’re farmers, restaurant workers, part-time teachers, nurses aides, construction workers and entrepreneurs working at high-tech startups.”
