As many Democrat candidates for president ramp-up their campaigns and begin stumping for early votes, we will likely hear more about their plans to provide free healthcare or “Medicare for All” as a way to rally support.
Providing affordable healthcare while keeping spending in check is no easy feat. But in signing a Medicaid waiver bill into law in March, Gov. Brian Kemp signaled that’s the approach he will take in his effort to improve health care access for poor and middle-class Georgians. Kemp could also take a cue from a bill now working its way through Congress that offers an important first step in providing better access to health care while reducing overall costs. Members of Georgia’s congressional delegation, including Reps. Barry Loudermilk, Rick W. Allen and Jody B. Hice, are supporting the legislation as co-sponsors.
