Expanding Medicaid could add 17,000 jobs and pump more than $15.6 billion into the state's economy in the next six years by putting more money into the state's medical infrastructure, Beshear said.

That data came from analysis conducted by University of Louisville and Price Waterhouse Coopers on the potential financial impact of expanding the program that accounts for roughly 14.8 percent of the state's current two-year budget.

Beshear also had strong words for "naysayers" opposed to the expansion. He said they "express vague and broad anxieties about costs, fears which the facts refute, and they fall back on partisan politics."

The Democratic governor said the opposition contends Kentucky will be supporting Obama, who is unpopular in the state, if Kentucky expands Medicaid.

...and therein lies the source of the seizures that have been plaguing the Teapublicans.

This quote needs to be placed in response to those kinds of posts.

Over and over and over.
