President Obama

President Barack Obama's re-election campaign has opened its first office in Kentucky. The Bluegrass State has never been a priority for the president, not in his 2008 bid and not now. But spokesman Frank Benenati says the president is serious about competing in all fifty states.

In the Weekly Republican Address, U-S Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell today called for the repeal of President Obama's healthcare reform law. Speaking just days before the U-S Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments on the constitutionality of the law, the lawmaker from Louisville said the bill the White House backed has "made things worse."  McConnell did note that the President was right to join a call for health care reform,but he criticized the Obama plan for leading to higher costs and premiums.
