Kentucky GOP House Leaders Release Agenda

The proposals are part of an agenda released Tuesday by House Republican leaders.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Republicans are promising action to try to repeal the state's Medicaid expansion if they take control of the state House.

In another proposal aimed at the federal health care law known as "Obamacare," House GOP leaders are vowing to push for a constitutional amendment to prohibit any person, employer or health provider from being forced to participate in a health care system.

The proposals are part of an agenda released Tuesday by House Republican leaders.

State Democratic Party chairman Dan Logsdon says the GOP leaders want to take away health coverage for hundreds of thousands of Kentuckians without offering an alternative plan.

Republicans are vying for a power switch in this year's election after nearly a century of Democratic control of the House.

The GOP platform also calls for right-to-work legislation and tax reform.
