1. Gov. Deal is blocking Medicaid access in Georgia — even though the federal government would cover 100% of the costs for three years and 90% after that.
2. He considers sending the $34 BILLION in federal funding to other states his “biggest health care accomplishment.”
3. Deal must be proud about blocking more than 600,000 uninsured Georgians from gaining health coverage.
4. …And stopping 17,000 Georgia women a year from getting mammograms.
5. Gov. Deal doesn’t seem to care about the four rural hospitals that have closed on his watch.
6. …Or the 40 Georgia counties that now have no OB-GYN services.
7. During Gov. Deal’s term, Georgia has become the state with the highest rate of pregnancy-related deaths in the nation.
8. And because he’s in the pockets of big pharma, Deal is slowing down the push for medical marijuana for Georgians who suffer from deadly seizure disorders.
9. As if that’s not bad enough, this year Gov. Deal signed an extremist bill that eliminated state health insurance for abortions — even in cases of rape and incest.
All of these factors lead to Georgia ranking 40th in the nation for overall health.
And unfortunately, Gov. Deal’s failed education and economic development policies have led to some of the lowest graduation rates and highest childhood poverty rates in the nation — two statistics that make it difficult for Georgians to improve their well-being.
If you agree that Deal’s policies are bad for Georgians’ health, you can do something about it. Right now.
