No more excuses, Gov. Deal must get to work on health care

A day after President Obama’s re-election, Gov. Nathan Deal suggested that he will not create the state’s part of the Affordable Health Care act, the president’s signature legislative achievement.

Deal told The Associated Press that he won’t confirm his decision until notifying federal authorities. But he noted that the state has stopped planning an exchange.

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.

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 summer’s historic U.S. Supreme Court decision and for the re-election of Pres. Obama.

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:

  1. Stop delaying and move forward by implementing the entire Affordable Care Act here in Georgia.
  2. 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
