After weeks of protesting outside the Gold Dome, Moral Monday activists today took their message urging Gov. Nathan Deal to expand Medicaid inside the Georgia Capitol.
Nearly 40 Moral Monday Georgia activists today were arrested for interrupting proceedings throughout the Georgia Capitol in an effort to urge Gov. Nathan Deal to expand Medicaid - and block legislation that would strip him of the authority to do so.
Today is the fourth birthday of the Affordable Care Act. Strictly speaking, this is not news, but a predictable, calendar-based event.
Rather like a Legislature in Georgia passing a gun bill in an election year. You can nearly set your watch by it.
On Tuesday evening, the Georgia legislature approved two anti-Obamacare measures that will block state residents’ access to insurance. One of the measures, HB 990, will strip Gov. Nathan Deal (R) of his authority to expand Medicaid, leaving 600,000 of the poorest Georgians without affordable health care options. The second will make it more difficult for residents to get the information they need about enrolling in new plans under Obamacare.

If your Senator(s) and/or Representative is not currently a supporter, they may not be aware that the legislation exists. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request for support. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
