The federal Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, imposed new taxes on individuals, employers, medical device manufacturers, health insurance companies, charitable hospitals, and medicine. Obamacare forces insurance companies to provide unwanted or unneeded plan features on all individuals which has caused many Americans to lose their preferred health insurance plans. Further, the so­-called employer mandate forced many companies to cut work hours or stop hiring new full­time employees. Georgia’s previous legislative attempts to nullify Obamacare fell short of that task because they lacked penalties and provided no legal recourse for Georgia citizens.
