The Cost of Repeal

The Consequences for Georgia of a Repeal of the New Federal Health Care Law

On March 23, 2010, after a long debate, President Barack Obama signed into law comprehensive federal health care reform legislation, known as the Affordable Care Act or ACA, but the enactment of the law did not end the debate. This year, Georgia’s elected officials will face their own choices about what to do about our health care system. They must ask whether repeal would make our health care work better or worse for the taxpayers, consumers, and businesses of the state. The close examination of the consequence of repeal provided in this report demonstrates that repeal fails that test.
