Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger has been one of the few elected Republican officials in the country to work to implement the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Since Republicans have made repeal of the Act a primary goal, what should she do?

I disagree, KS. Consider the poll "exploratory". It's interesting to read the feedback.

What a stupid poll! She should continue her job as Insurance Commissioner. If she doesn't like the decision of the Governor and Legislature, she should follow their lead regardless. If she really feels strongly against both the Gov and Legislature, she, like any other folks that are legal residents of this State, can ALWAYS run for higher office. What a dumb poll.

Single Payer now. Free those patriotic "job creators" from the unfair burden of having to supply health coverage to the workers.

On the Constitutionality of the Uniform Health Care act, which is more appropriate and fair under our Constitution,, having everyone be responsible for their own health care costs by requiring all to have insurance or donate to the U.S. treasury or having those who do have insurance cover the health care costs of those who don't?

That "R" following her name stands for RINO. The only reason she is running as a Republican is because she knows that is the only way she would be elected in a State wide election.

"what if all the dems switched to repubs "........ I think that is an excellent idea. The Dems could start a secret coalition, run as Repubs on the "let's shoot illegal aliens from helicopters like we do wild hogs" platform which will entice most of rural Kansas to vote for them.

Just a little History. 38th governor Docking, 40th Carlin, 42nd Joan finney, 44th Kathleen Sebelius, 45th Parkinson. all Democrates. 46th Sam Brownbacker. So go cry in the river.

Praeger is and always has been a LIBERAL!!!! She endorsed the Governor with enthusiasm and apparent pride in the election and Governor Brownback is doing exactly what he said he would do in the campaign. And he was elected by a huge majority and swept many others into office. Elections have consequences. Based upon the last election, it would be political suicide for Prager to run against him, but if she does, she should run as a Dem because thats what she is and that would be the end of her politically.

She is another pathetic RINO who must feel guilt of having some money, and to assuage her guilt wants others to give their money to Socialism. She stands NO chance of being elected to higher office, her position and place in life were all given to her, she has no appreciation for working for anything, so it means nothing for her to want to take other's money and give it to those who refuse to be productive. Typical Lib.

Since the repubs hold about every office in Kansasstan what if all the dems switched to repubs and controlled the primary process. One way to get rid of some of these whackjobs. The primary turnout is low but demrepubs would be motivated to turnout.

If my memory serves me correctly; several years ago, Sandy (while Insurance Commissioner) denied allowing small businesses to group together to form health insurance Groups. If this is so, I would like to know her logic regarding this issue at that time. To me, her ruling prevented a lot of small business owners from obtaining affordable health insurance for themselves and their employees. I always wondered if her familial relationship to the medical profession played a role in her actions. Hopefully, she has a change of heart when it comes to insurance for all as indicated in her more recent opinions.

I have rarely voted for a Republican, but I have a lot of respect for Sandy. instead of toeing the party line she usually tries to do what she thinks is right. Good for her. We need more politicians like her in this country. if she runs for governor I would probably support her over a democrat.

As they say, there are two Republican parties in Kansas. The far right nut jobs, on one hand, and the moderate Republicans/Conservative Democrats on the other hand.

Whether the Affordable Health Care Act stands or not it is still a good idea to create the IT support programs that will make all medical stuff (medicaid) more efficient and save money in the long run. Even if...we will see what SCOTUS has to say later. Wasting taxpayer time and money doesn't seem to be much of an issue with our Governor. How much are we blowing on the baby daddy and marriage iniatiatives? You know rockchalk on the sidewalk? Those more core functions.

Since Obamacare is unconstitutional she is therefore wasting taxpayer time and money. Resign in disgrace Sandy and move to DC with Kathleen Sebelius.

Stay Republican. Run. I will switch so I can vote for her in the primary against the Stain. Where I live it is almost worthless and is a joke...to be a democrat.

I admire Praeger. However, if I remember correctly, show was among the Republicans who endorsed Brownback in his race for governor. I wish she had withheld that endorsement.

Interesting results so far. The Republican Terrorist Party in Kansas has been pretty specific in their jihad on te citizens of Kansas, with the actions of the governer. Kinda puts the onus on those who continue to support the outrageous acts of vandalism and terrorism that are so ardently supported by the Republicans in this state.

Sandy Praeger understands the issues. She is great.
