"Hemorrhaging" in Kentucky

"Medicaid is hemorrhaging. It's not bleeding, it's hemorrhaging," [Kentucky Cabinet Secretary] Glisson said. 

Another one bites the dust. Didn't Virginia Dems tout Kentucky's exchange as a world class example of Obamacare at work? Well, in a way, they were right. 

This article from the Lexington Herald-Leader details how the Bluegrass State's healthcare exchange will face a $611 million deficit by the end of next year. 

And the best part? The Secretary in charge of the program actually has no idea how to cover the cost. 

"Glisson could not tell lawmakers how she planned to make up the deficit. She promised to have details next week."
