Help Move Georgia Forward
ATLANTA – Today, lawmakers convene at the Gold Dome for Georgia’s 155th legislative session with the opportunity to lower healthcare costs, create jobs, and grow our economy – but Brian Kemp and Georgia Republicans have already set the stage for the most extreme session yet for Georgians.
In the time leading up to session, Republican legislators and Governor* Brian Kemp have pushed through healthcare proposals that would gut essential health benefits for Georgians with pre-existing conditions, proposed a budget that slashes vital services for vulnerable Georgians, and doubled down on their commitment to an extreme agenda – even threatening to cut the immensely popular film tax credit, which is responsible for nearly 100,000 jobs.
“Brian Kemp and the Georgia GOP have already shown their hand: by viciously slashing essential services and refusing to fully expand Medicaid, along with forcing through extreme, anti-business legislation, Republicans have chosen every time to stand with their own agenda over the people of Georgia,” said Nikema Williams, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “While the GOP continues to advance extreme bills that legalize discrimination, Democrats will keep fighting them every step of the way. This session promises to be a desperate gasp of extremism by the Georgia Republican Party because Republicans know that this session will be their last one in the majority.”
Here’s what we know:
The Georgia GOP, led by Kemp, is waging an all-out assault on Georgians’ healthcare.
Kemp’s disastrous budget cuts are hurting everyday Georgians by slashing essential services needed to survive.
Georgia Republicans won’t stop putting their extreme, partisan agenda before the needs of Georgians – taking our state backwards and ruining our economy.
