Now comes this: Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens told a group of Republicans in Floyd County:
“Let me tell you what we’re doing [about Obamacare]. . . Everything in our power to be an obstructionist.”There you have it from the horse's mouth. This is the man elected to oversee all insurance programs in Georgia. Shouldn't he evaluate them on merit and not ideology or political opportunism?
The end result is that most Georgians are going to get insurance -- but it will be a lot more difficult for anyone who gets it on his own (because Georgia refused to set up a state exchange) and impossible for a few people who would have been eligible for the Medicaid extension (which Georgia refused to accept).
Seems to me that's good cause for the governor, the insurance commissioner, and most of the legislature being voted out of office first chance we get.
