Re: Petition Drive to Nullify Obamacare in GA Tops 30,000 Sign-ups!
Canton — The petition drive to nullify Obamacare in Georgia has surpassed 30,000 sign-ups.
Carolyn Cosby, leader of the statewide group, Georgians For Healthcare Freedom, reported Tuesday evening at the Canton T.E.A. Party that calls had been received late in the day pushing the numbers to 30,062. The sign-ups were confirmed on Wednesday.
The group’s goal is to reach 34,000 by the end of the year and submit the petitions to State Representatives at the beginning of the legislative session in a call for a Constitutional Amendment and a statewide referendum to “Let the Citizen’s Decide!”
In addition to a state action, Cosby said the group is supporting several proposals to nullify Obamacare to include a GA Resolution in a call for a national repeal of Obamacare by our Congressman and the initiation of a joint lawsuit with sister states calling on the Supreme Court to revisit the recent Obamacare decision.
Cosby said, “The people of Georgia, by a wide margin, find the Obamacare act to be unconstitutional.” She said, “We petitioned our fellow citizens and they declared ‘the King has no clothes on.” She explained, “Obamacare is a massive, unprecedented intrusion into the private lives of Americans. It was shoved through by sheer, raw power without the support of one Republican. It can not and will not ever fulfill the promises that have been made.” She continues, “The power of the Presidential bravado, utilizing lies and deception, has kept the bill from being stopped by the courts, elections and our Congress. It is now in the hands of the people to stand up and they have.”
Cosby reports that the sign up rate is a landslide of opposition. 60 to 70% of folks asked, sign up in the metro counties. Outlying areas are 90% or more. Black Americans are the surprise at 50% and young people are now signing at higher numbers than the 50 plus age group. “Our ‘sampling’ of Georgians makes clear they want their State Representatives to ACT. Gov Deal, a majority of US Congressman, candidates for Congress and Georgia State Representatives have signed.” said Cosby.
Cosby, stated that the significance of the numbers is that in consideration of time and opportunities to gather signatures, the number represents the national average of legal petition states which requires10% of the most recent gubernatorial election results to drive citizen legislation. In Georgia, Cosby calculates that number to be 32,202.
The group reported it is seeking 34,000 sign-ups to allow for some signers who slip through who are from out-of-state, duplicates, or non-voters.
Cosby says “It is impossible to replicate the legal process of a bona fide petition state, since Georgia does not have laws governing petitions. “However, she stated, considering the challenges to match legal petition states these sign-ups, collected on the streets of Georgia, at parks, festivals, post offices and special events in all kinds of weather by an all-volunteer team demand action by our legislators.”
Cosby says, “All of Americans are looking for an escape hatch to get out from under the Obamacare mandate to purchase a health plan they do not want and cannot afford. The one size fits all Obamacare is too costly and has failed to live up to its promises in every measureable way.”
