nes 1 year, 1 month ago on Deal unmoved on Medicaid expansion

Research from other states suggests Medicaid expansion could prevent 3,600 deaths per year in Georgia - close to 10 deaths per day. Medicaid costs are going to increase whether or not we expand - because with the Affordable Care Act we're going to start covering the 50% of eligible Georgians who aren't signed up - and that's why Governor Deal is able to cite scary numbers as an excuse to not move forward. But the federal government covering 90%+ the costs of newly eligible folks under the expansion is TOO GOOD A DEAL to pass up. We're sending our tax dollars to help other states expand, and that's just not right.
