While President Obama’s historic health care law, and today’s decision, represent an enormous victory for all Georgians, there is still much work to do.
Now that the ruling has been announced it is time for our leaders in Georgia to get to work and implement the Affordable Care Act in Georgia. No more excuses.
Sign the petition now.
This decision will make sure that children with pre-existing health conditions will have the care they need, young adults will be able to stay on their parents’ health plans, small businesses will receive tax health insurance credits for the first time, thousands of Georgians will get rebates from their insurers this summer, and millions will no longer have out-of-pocket costs for routine preventive care.
Georgia conservatives hoped for the worst case scenario and refused to plan.
With this Supreme Court ruling it is time for our leadership to get to work and immediately take steps to fully implement the Affordable Care Act in Georgia.
Sign your name and tell Gov. Nathan Deal, Sen. Renee Unterman (Chair of the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services), and Rep. Sharon Cooper (Chair of the House Committee on Public Health) to stop dragging their feet and face the facts – the Affordable Care Act is here to stay and it’s time to get to work.
Since March 23, 2010 when President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, conservatives in Georgia have spent so much time creating legislation in hopes the Affordable Care Act would not be upheld that they have left our state unprepared for this historic decision.
That must end now. It is time for Georgia leadership to put their partisan games attacking the Affordable Care Act aside. Sign your name and tell Georgia’s leadership to:
- Stop delaying and move forward by implementing the entire Affordable Care Act here in Georgia.
- Establish a health care exchange that will allow nearly 2 million currently uninsured Georgians and hundreds of Georgia small businesses to access good health care coverage at affordable prices
While we should all take time to celebrate this historic decision knowing that millions of Georgians will finally have access to the health care they need, we must make our collective voice heard. We can’t sit back and celebrate while our state leaders remain woefully unprepared.
Sign your name and tell our leaders to get to work and fully implement to the Affordable Care Act now.
