Volkswagen workers who are employed at the Chattanooga, Tennessee plant had the right under federal law to vote on whether they wanted union representation or not, without intimidation, fear or coercion. So it was somewhat surprising, on the surface, when they voted down having union representation. Many of us smelled a rat, and rightfully so. ...

Gov. Deal, Veto HB 990 & Expand Medicaid Now! | ActionNetwork.org | 04/06/14

Gov. Deal, Veto HB 990 & Expand Medicaid Now! | ActionNetwork.org | 04/06/14 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it
In the face of one of the worst legislative sessions in recent history, Georgians are coming together to voice their outrage at regressive legislation that attempts to turn the clock in the state back by 50 years. The unprecedented attacks on workers, women, the poor, and the disenfranchised resulted in a slew of bad bills that are awaiting Governor Nathan Deal's signature. The Moral Monday movement that started in North Carolina and spread across the region is just the beginning of a new era in the south, as more and more people are rising up against politicians who aren't listening and don't represent the will of the people.  Nowhere is this more obvious than in the battle for Medicaid expansion.  Georgia is facing a crisis in healthcare- 20% of our states residents are uninsured, the 5th highest rate in the nation. Hospitals across the state are being forced to close, unable to bear the burden of rising costs. Expanding Medicaid would cover 650,000 uninsured Georgians, create up to 70,000 good jobs, stabilize hospitals at risk of closing, and bring billions of dollars to our state. This is a good deal for Georgia, but instead of expanding Medicaid elected officials are doing everything they can to stand in the way. HB 990, recently passed by the legislature, takes the responsibility for the decision away from Governor Deal, and leaves Georgians hanging until the legislative session resumes in 2015. An estimated 10 people die in Georgia every day from lack of access to healthcare. We can't afford to stand by and let lives hang in the balance.  Republican Governors across the country are caving into pressure and expanding medicaid in their states- realizing that the well being of their residents is more important than political posturing. Let's add Georgia to the list. Please sign the petition to Governor Deal asking him to do the right thing-- veto HB 990 and expand Medicaid in Georgia now. We will deliver the petition to Governor Deal in person on Monday April 7.  The time is now for locking arms and banding together for the long haul to make our voices heard. Forward together, not one step back.
