Georgia – U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Branko Radulovacki, also known as Dr. Rad, has called on Governor Nathan Deal and Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens to stop obstructing Obamacare in the state of Georgia.
“These elected officials have decided to do what’s worst for Georgia. Governor Deal refused Medicaid expansion – making it more difficult for 650,000 hard-working Georgians to obtain health coverage, while refusing over $30 billion in federal funding over the next decade and turning away 70,000 new jobs,” said Radulovacki. “Instead, Georgia’s tax dollars will be sent to other states to subsidize their healthcare.”
Radulovacki has unveiled a petition at HeretoHelpGA.com that demands Deal and Hudgens do everything possible to help Georgians learn about the insurance options now open to them. “Obstructionism that harms the very people they were elected to serve is morally wrong,” said Radulovacki.
Insurance Commissioner Hudgens admits to being an “obstructionist” toward Obamacare, and has done little to educate Georgia residents about the benefits of the law. “Obamacare makes healthcare accessible and affordable,” said Radulovacki. “As a result of Hudgens and Deal, people are afraid of something that’s going to make their lives better.”
Dr. Rad wants Georgians to know the benefits of Obamacare: guaranteed access to treatment with no annual or lifetime limits, guaranteed coverage despite any preexisting conditions, free preventive care (including physicals, cancer screenings, mammograms, immunizations & flu shots), and the ability to choose whether to lower your premium or your deductible. Many Georgians will also qualify for subsidies to lower their rates further. “None of this information is being shared with Georgia’s citizens. In fact, we’re being told to be afraid of something that will help working families throughout the state,” he said.
“Governor Deal and Insurance Commissioner Hudgens are undermining the law,” Radulovacki concluded. “If they aren’t willing to step up, they need to step aside — and let others lead the way to better healthcare.”
