Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues to catch heat from Democrats, and dissatisfaction from some Republicans, about Senate Republicans' secret drafting of a repeal-and-replace-Obamacare bill that he wants passed by June 30.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer of New York told the Kentuckian in a letter that they should convene a meeting of all 100 senators "on the topic of health care," which "affects every single American and one-sixth of our economy. We believe we all owe it to our constituents to pursue any bipartisan potential legislation because it profoundly impacts so many American lives."

Schumer told reporters, “They’re ashamed of the bill. If they liked the bill, they’d have brass bands marching down the middle of small-town America saying what a great bill it is. But they know it isn’t.”

McConnell spokesman David Popp "argued that the letter suggests Democrats are now open to the 'repeal' component of the …

Anderson Co. Middle School bans fictional teen suicide book from curriculum; school psychologists' group has concerns about book

Anderson County Middle School will no longer use a fictional book on teenage suicide for classroom instruction, citing a controversial Netflix series that is based on the book as a contributor to this decision, Ben Carlson reports for The Anderson News.

“The series played a factor in the decision to no longer use the book,” Supt. Sheila Mitchell told Carlson. “Also, the manner in which the book was beginning to be used for fall 2016 was not the original intent, so the principal informed the teacher to find other resources to support the concept.”

Principal Jenna Rose told Carlson that portions of the book, 13 Reasons Why, had been approved for use in a middle-school enrichment class during the 2016 spring semester to support a concept in standards. The book was not being used in any of the elementary or high schools.

The book "follows a fictional character named Hannah Baker who leaves behind 13 cassette tapes that explain why she committed suicide, and how 13 different people or si…

In a June 15 letter, Democratic U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth of Louisville asked U.S. Health Secretary Tom Price for an update on the status of Kentucky's proposal to reshape its Medicaid program, and urged him to not approve it. The proposal went to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services almost 10 months ago. Approval is expected, but it may include provisions that were not requested of the Obama administration.

Doug Hogan, spokesman for the KentuckyCabinet for Health and Family Services, said in an email that there isn't anything to update: "We remain in negotiations with CMS on our 1115 Medicaid waiver and feel optimistic about the ultimate outcome."

Kentucky's request for a waiver from the Medicaid rules targets "able-bodied adults" who qualify for Medicaid under the expansion of the program to those who earn up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level ($16,400 for an individual).

If approved, the waiver is ex…
