Governor Deal: Accept Federal Medicaid Funds

To be delivered to Governor Nathan Deal

Petition Statement

One in five Georgia residents don't have health insurance, including many children.

By rejecting Medicaid expansion funds from the federal government, you are hurting nearly 700,000 Georgians who would benefit from it.

Please reverse course and accept the federal Medicaid dollars and help Georgians in need.
There are currently 10,302 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Last year, Governor Nathan Deal announced that he would not accept new federal dollars to expand the state's Medicaid program.

By rejecting these funds, nearly 700,000 Georgians will be uninsured.

Tell Governor Deal to reverse course and accept federal Medicaid dollars and protect the nearly 700,000 Georgians that would benefit.
