Georgia GOP’s Midterm Agenda: Roll Back Your Freedoms, Raise Your Costs

September 8, 2022

With two months to go until Election Day, the Georgia GOP has built up a track record of voting to roll back the hard-earned freedoms Georgians cherish, and in lockstep with special interests and big corporations – even conceding that they’re planning to reverse Democrats’ landmark cost-cutting measures for prescription drugs if they win in November.

In the past few months alone, Georgia’s House Republicans voted unanimously against protecting:

By opposing the Inflation Reduction Act, Georgia Republicans voted against capping the cost of prescription drugs, including insulin for seniors, and finally allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices. But if they win in November, they plan to go even further:

  • Georgia GOP Rep. Buddy Carter admitted that he and Republicans will work to raise prescription drug costs for Georgians and all Americans if Republicans take control of the House, telling Fox News they plan to “undo” the historic cost-cutting measures in President Biden and Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act.
  • On the provisions that will save Georgia families hundreds or thousands of dollars per year – Carter confessed: “I’ve been asking my colleagues, how are we going to undo that when we get into the majority?”

“In the past few months alone, Georgia Republicans have made it clear: they’ll reverse Democrats’ historic action to cut prescription drug costs for families, and put Georgians’ rights to health care, contraceptives, and even same-sex and interracial marriage at risk,” said Democratic Party of Georgia spokesperson Ryan Radulovacki.
