The GOP has been quick to attack Taylor’s math.
Health insurance for all Georgia’s children is a signature proposal of Democratic Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor’s campaign for governor.
But is his Peach Kids program feasible? And what would it cost?
Taylor portrays Peach Kids as both ambitious and modest, saying it would create a safety net for Georgia’s uninsured children but would cost the state only about $13.8 million in the first year.
Republicans question his math. Gov. Sonny Perdue argues that jobs are the way to combat the problem of the uninsured but has not made health care a focus of his re-election campaign.
