“When Republicans focus on these side issues like religious liberty, when they spend more time on a resolution about kneeling football players than they do on fixing the rural health care crisis, that’s heat loss....It literally conducts energy away from the problems at hand.” 1/
Afterwards I asked her how this Democratic team of women would work over the next few months. “Women learned a long time ago that one of the best ways to make our voices heard was to amplify one another. I’ve seen it in the board room, and I’ve certainly seen it in politics,” 2/
But Amico doesn’t want the general election to become a battle of the sexes. “This is a slate of candidates that looks like the state. What I love is, there’s this consistent, pragmatic, problem-solving, results-oriented approach,” she said. 3/
“And that, perhaps, even more than the appearance of the slate, is the biggest contrast with the other side.”
A great look at some fantastic candidates on your ballot this November 6th!

Thank you to @politicalinsidr and the @ajc for highlighting this year’s incredible slate of @GeorgiaDemocrat women candidates! #SarahforGeorgia #gapol

Rural healthcare reality✔️: thread.

For 14 yrs, 1 party (GOP) has controlled GA state gov’t w/legislative majorities + Governor.

In that time, 7 rural have hospitals closed. 64 counties have no pediatrician, 79 no OB/GYN, 9 no doctor at all. 1/

Per the article: “Georgia’s GOP-dominated Legislature decided not to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, saying the state could not afford the long-term cost. That has left adults who earn less than the poverty level uninsured.”
Result: 240k Georgians in ‘Medicaid Gap’
That means 240,000 more Georgians COULD have health insurance if we expanded Medicaid - but that ONE party in power (GOP) chose not to do so. That same decision also cost Georgia 56,000 JOBS annually and $6.5 billion in economic output according to @GaBudget
