Deal can do what Jan Brewer did. Reinstated a Medicaid for All program that she didn’t start and tried to kill, then took the credit for implementing it as “Obamacare.”
I have been writing the Georgia governor about this since 2008 and Deal and the one before him haven’t heard a word.
They need to ask Jan Brewer how her state “got it done” at minimal expense because THEY WERE ALREADY DOING IT. She tried to cave under GOP pressure and tried to ditch instead of leading the way and showing everyone else how it’s done, and it finally occurred to her that she could go down in history as a trailblazer or a trailer.
The way they do it in Arizona is nearly PERFECT! And they cut costs like nobody’s business when they implemented Medicaid for the whole state of persons who are uncovered for whatever reasons. People actually got mad at her because they got medical costs for the state under control with AHCCCS and she was about to tear it up for no reason.
Georgia can look at the way Arizona handles it and they will do very well.
Please expand Medicaid, especially for people that are too young to get Medicare, after accidents or sickness and are unable to work.
