"Send Gov. Nathan Deal his pink slip" : Better Georgia | BetterGeorgia.org | 04/23/14

"Send Gov. Nathan Deal his pink slip" : Better Georgia | BetterGeorgia.org | 04/23/14 | Politics From My Point Of View | Scoop.it

If you had Gov. Deal’s job performance, would you still have your job?


Gov. Deal’s short-sighted changes to the lottery-funded HOPE program nearly destroyed the state’s best pipeline for highly skilled jobs.
When Gov. Deal changed the HOPE funding, he made it impossible for thousands of Georgians to be trained for highly skilled jobs – jobs that are going unfilled today – and he tore down the bridge that leads out of poverty and to the middle class.


Gov. Deal’s stubborn, partisan refusal to expand Medicaid leaves thousands of the poorest Georgians uninsured. And, on top of that, his decision threatens the bottom lines of hospitals that were counting on new income from the changes.


Gov. Deal’s budget has underfunded schools every single year he’s been in office. Since 2010, Georgia spent $1 billion less on public education each year than the state’s own formula says schools need.
Gov. Deal is the worst governor for Georgia’s middle class this state has ever seen.

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

.......Better Georgia shares this Gov. Deal Pink Slip Petition: Are you one of the 70 percent of Georgians opposed to the "guns everywhere" bill that Gov. Deal is signing into law today? Let send Gov. Deal his pink slip in November!
