I am a local small business owner, and employer. My employees and I actually need Obamacare. It's not going to hurt me, despite the many lies Handel and Price continue to make to the contrary. This new breed of Republicans are bad for democracy. They are are happy to legislatively impose their "Christian" values when it suits them on morality, abortion, homosexuality, etc. Yet the poor and the sick are repeatedly ignored or even victimized by their policies. The teaching of Jesus are suddenly gone when it come to those topics. Even now, the states where the ACA was embraced (vs obstructed), the exchanges are functioning a great deal better and off to a great start serving ALL of their respective states constituents. We need representation that will put their state/ country in front of party. Sorry Georgians, but these current Republicans are not working with your best interests at heart.
