Foundation for Government Accountability Voice For The Vulnerable Award
In October 2017, Representative Spencer was regcognized and honored by the Foundation for Government Accountability for his tireless efforts to protect Georgia from the harmful effects of ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion. One of Representative Spencer’s key legislative achievements was passing the Georgia Healthcare Freedom Act in the 2014 session. That legislation prevented Georgia’s tax payer funded resources from being used to enforce the costly federal healthcare law, known as ObamaCare. Also, Representative Spencer co-sponsored key legislation that same year in House Bill 990 which removed the power from the Governor’s office to soley expand the costly Medicaid expansion under Obamacare. Since the passage of these two pieces of legislation, Representative Spencer has remained ever vigilant by pushing back against persistent efforts by powerful special interest groups to expand Obamacare’s costly Medicaid program in Georgia. By expanding Medicaid under Obamacare and using state resouces to enforce that law, those who are medically brittle on the current state program would lose their benefits to healthy able-bodied working childless adults through expansion. By not expanding Medicaid, the program can stay preserved for those who are deaf, blind and disabled.
