My Point Is... The war in Kentucky

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

Over the past two decades, Kentucky’s heritage has been attacked from nearly every possible angle with each protest from the two representatives in our nation’s Capitol. Opposition to the health care proposal and a staunch defense for the state’s resources and heritage have resulted in an all-out war on the state and the people who live and want to work here.

When this war will end and on what terms remains to be seen. But with the way things are going, the resilience and perseverance of Kentuckians may well continue to be tested until some resolution is reached — and probably only through a new administration at the helm in our nation’s Capitol.
