Under the nation’s health law, every person was supposed to have a way to get health care coverage. However, the state of Georgia has declined federal funds to expand Medicaid to cover low income Georgians. Now 300,000 Georgians are left in a coverage gap, and there is no way for them to get health insurance. Tell Governor Deal and your state legislators to close Georgia’s coverage gap!
