She added, among other policies, waiting periods and universal background checks. “Across the state, there is a governor who has flooded streets with firearms by weakening gun laws and giving dangerous people access to weapons.” Plans to expand coverage to Georgians Kemp rejected Medicaid expansion, calling it a “broken government program,” while Abrams argued that it needed: Kemp linked with President Joe Biden, who blamed Abrams for inflation “Stacey Abrams campaigned to become Joe Biden’s running mate. She supports these policies,” Abrams said in her aggressive effort to use Georgia’s surplus budget to raise teacher salaries and fund preschool. She also insisted that even a Republican-led legislature would not hinder her progressive ideas if she were elected: “Georgia gets a solution from her days as minority leader in the State House of Representatives.” Speaking, Kemp has made his point for a second term, and I’m asking for a support vote to keep it that way,” Abrams closed with criticism. “Brian Kemp made a promise. He promised to keep us safe, but crime increased. He promised to protect us, but we were attacked. He promised to take care of his family, but he refused to solve the affordable housing crisis. Georgia’s inflation is rising because they refused to expand Medicaid.” Sahil Kapur is a senior national political correspondent for NBC News. .
