  1. Georgia Budget and Policy Institute (GBPI), a left-leaning think tank in Atlanta: Be sure to not call these new programs “taxes”; they are “investments”. Another useless poll designed to fit an agenda of welfare.

  2. It does no good to put people on Medicaid if doctors , labs, hospitals and such other providers do not accept it . It’s the same as having “Obama” care very few places accept it . So you’ll just be spending billions of taxpayers dollars to insurance companies to “ administer” it and no one will be getting better health care .
