Kentucky's 2013 Legislative Session Will Open with Tea Party Rally against Health Care Law

Kentucky Tea Party activists are carrying their fight against the Affordable Care Act into the new year.

Before the first gavel of the session Tuesday, Tea Party activists plan to rally in the Capitol Rotunda against the ACA.

It’s the second capital rally against the law, which Kentucky has actively worked to implement under an executive order from Governor Steve Beshear.

Rally organizer and activist David Adams says the goal of the event is to convince lawmakers to pass a measure overturning Beshear’s order.


“Can the legislature reverse the executive order, they absolutely can. We need our legislators to come to our aid on this issue and you know it’s not just Republicans.”

Adams says the fight over the health care law didn’t end with President Barack Obama’s re-election and he and others will continue to fight the ACA in the commonwealth.
