We are asking for Medicaid expansion as the state legislature reconvenes to discuss the budget crisis brought on by unwise tax breaks and now the fallout from COVID 19. With unemployment reaching record highs, falling tax revenue, the recession taking hold, and our health care system under great stress, expanding Medicaid can create relief for hardworking Georgians. We need our families and workers to be healthy and whole to rebuild a strong economy. Access to health care should be an essential component to Georgia’s economic recovery plan. By expanding Medicaid, lawmakers can alleviate the worries and concerns of many citizens and employers.
