Medicaid Expansion Demonstration at Republican State Convention! Hosted by Athens for Everyone
The Republican Party is holding their annual State Convention at the Classic Center in Athens. That means all those legislators who have been standing in the way of expanding Medicaid in Georgia, including governor Deal will get to hear us tell them what we think! Marco Rubio and Chris Christie will also be in town. This demonstration will show them, and the rest of Georgia, that our state government has rejected about $40 billion in funding from the federal government to expand the Medicaid program. As a result, 650,000 Georgians lack coverage. More horrifying, over 1,000 Georgians are dying annually because of Gov. Deal and the legislature’s political posturing as hospitals close and people are unable to access the preventative care that saves lives.
