The most important Tuesday this year will ever have

If you haven’t yet, please, please, whatever it takes, VOTE! There are people offering rides. Check your state’s website on the status of your mailed-in ballot, and if it’s not recorded as received, show up and vote in person like my cousin David just had to do.

Sunday, Trump met with Gov. Kemp of Georgia and quietly shut down in that state. Nearly 430,000 people in Georgia who get their insurance through the ACA are now shut out and are being told to just go buy insurance from a broker at whatever price they can get.

All they can do is hope the ACLU or someone challenges it in court–while they wait, unable to afford to go to the doctor.

During a pandemic.

This was Trump testing the political waters to see what he could get away with and it is just the start.

The current President of the United States does not want you to be tested for Covid if you’re sick because then you might get mad at him for the 236,997 dead so far and then he might have to face the Attorney General of New York who’s waiting to hold him accountable for his many state financial crimes. Give him liberty or give us death: not a contest as far as he’s concerned. He’ll take both.

OMGosh!!! I didn’t know that about healthcare in Georgia! I can’t wrap my head around that kind of evil. We voted absentee weeks ago. Decided not to take a chance on mail and took our ballots to the BOE. I have pestered my family about voting. My hubs made sure his 100 yr old mother got her ballot and then posted it for her. We live in a densely conservative county (state)…I just cringe at all of the yard signs. It’s discouraging.

There is just no bottom to how low they will go. It is mind-boggling.

This sent me looking…to be clear, this change is not immediate, it begins in 2023. Private brokers can match you up with subsidized plans now, but not everyone knows that. And the emphasis on the effects varies with the news source, but according to VOX, those who just let their coverage roll over without shopping for other plans would find, if they don’t pay attention, that coverage simply ends and they’re stuck. Georgia does not and still won’t have a state system as all the other states that don’t participate in the federal access system do. There will be litigation very fast to stop this, but yes, this is rotten.

I have no words for how concerned I am about my neighbours to the south. Just know that I am holding you ALL in my prayers.
