    Georgia State House Passes Bill to Nullify ObamaCare

    FreedomWorks activists across Georgia celebrate as the bill moves to the State Senate

    Washington, DC- FreedomWorks activists across the state of Georgia celebrate this week after the Georgia State House passed a bill that effectively nullifies ObamaCare. The bill, H.B. 707 passed with an overwhelming 115-59 majority and travels now to the State Senate, where a solid Republican majority should be able to pass the bill.

    The legislation effectively nullifies ObamaCare by stopping state and local officials from assisting in the law’s implementation in any way. This would stop Medicaid expansion in the state, stop the health insurance exchange, and would make it very difficult for the Obama Administration to force Georgians into the one-size-fits-all federal program.

    FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe commented, “The passage of this ObamaCare nullification bill would not have been successful without the relentless efforts of grassroots activists across Georgia. They’re the ones that insisted their legislators listen and pass this bill. If and when the bill passes the State Senate, Georgia will be a model for other states who want to effectively push back against the federal health care takeover.”

    FreedomWorks joined the efforts of grassroots groups like Georgians for Healthcare Freedom, setting up action alerts that drove hundreds of individual calls to legislators demanding they take a stand against ObamaCare.

    FreedomWorks is a grassroots service center to a community of over 6 million activists who believe in individual liberty and constitutionally-limited government. For more information, please visit www.FreedomWorks.org or contact Jackie Bodnar at JBodnar@FreedomWorks.org.

    how is this great what about the homeless in Georgia such as myself. I have been looking for a job for 6 months now and have not been able to find one and I have a very serious health issue which needs treatment and the avaiablelity of medicade to the low income was my only change for care so is the states way of telling me since I am homeless I am worthless and don't deserve health care. Great way to raise your children isn't it.
