Meanwhile, In Georgia-You're Screwed...
Meanwhile in Georgia...a state where only 10% of its white citizens voted for Obama is doing everything possible to obstruct the ACA.
Governor Nathan Deal not only turned down all federal funding for Medicaid he also appointed a Republican state insurance director...
“Let me tell you what we’re doing (about ObamaCare),” Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens bragged to a crowd of fellow Republicans in Floyd County earlier this month: “Everything in our power to be an obstructionist.”
There are NO links on the state's webpage that connect you to healthcare.gov. Hudgens will not allow it.
Navigators have been trained in every state to help people navigate the exchanges that will provide the insurance companies' basic and other plans to residents. These workers have been given 30 hours in training and are unbiased. They are only there to give facts to confused residents in need of the ACA.
Ralph Hudgens has decided that 30 hrs training is NOT enough. He is requiring that every "navigator" be a fully licensed insurance agent! Right now only one navigator meets that criteria. But Hudgens insists it has NOTHING to do with obstructing "Obamacare."
Two in five Georgians need health insurance. One in five makes so little money that they don't qualify for Obamacare as it was thought that Medicaid would pick up the people who make under $11,000 per year.
(Editor's Note: Georgia has rejected the Medicaid Expansion in full...)
I've really nothing to add...
