Blueprint Feedback

The campaign has been pleasantly surprised by the volume of feedback to the Blueprint for Change (Go to the bottom of the page to read the comments).

We've received ideas from voters all across the state.

And tons of people are calling the hotline to request their copy of the Blueprint. 
 
It shows that what Bruce has been saying at the Bluegrass Barbecues is true - people are engaged and hungry for new ideas. 
 
They're reading the Blueprint - and responding with their own ideas.
We've heard from people like Jenny Adams, who wrote that she thinks "...it's great to have a businessman and someone who knows the ins and outs of government on a ticket." But she also talked about one of the problems our state faces, describing the situation of a friend who pays $1,500 per month for health insurance, but has a $10,000 deductible because of a history of skin cancer.
 
Other folks want solutions to their own regional problems, like Clifton New of Wayne County in eastern Kentucky. Mr. New's issue is the importance of improving infrastructure to create jobs, and he favors a new bridge across Lake Cumberland.
 
Today the campaign released the first update to the plan - the Blueprint for Financial Security. It addresses an issue that affects Kentuckians and folks throughout the country - the problem of predatory lending practices that take advantage of borrowers who often are just trying to keep their heads above water financially.  

These lenders use deception and fear to persuade folks to take on loans with high origination fees and escalating interest schedules – loans that they know the borrowers won’t be able to pay. Bruce and Greg have a plan to tighten regulations on these lenders and help people stay keep their homes. Read the Financial Security update here.
