  1. I don't live in Kentucky or I would support this legislation. Eliminating expensive health care agreements such as this is a key start to decreasing the cost of health care in the US. It's as if the public doesn't understand that the more expensive it becomes for physicians and nurse practitioners to run their business, the more expensive health care costs are for the general public because physicians have to charge higher fees to cover their costs. I know that the insurance companies also play a large role in the high cost of healthcare, but some of this is basic economics!
