ATLANTA — A group of protesters who gathered in Gov. Nathan Deal’s office and refused to leave have been arrested.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Democratic state Sen. Vincent Fort, of Atlanta, was among those who was arrested after refusing orders from police to leave Deal’s office. The protesters are part of a group called Moral Monday, which has been pushing for Deal to expand the state’s Medicaid program under the Affordable Care Act.

Deal has said previously that the state can’t afford to expand the program and some Democratic lawmakers have said the federal government would cover most of the cost and hundreds of thousands of Georgians would qualify for health care coverage if the program were expanded.

Vincent needs to get a grip his dictator Obama is the reason blacks are doing so bad! His half black Race Card playing president is a straight up dictator. Until the Democrats take the time to put the family unit back together their ghetto lifestyle isn’t going to work. Get your butts off the porch and go to work and earn something. Spend more time looking for the kid’s fathers and making them pay and go to work. We’ve been thronging money at you people by bucket full since 1964. Your president should have found a way to insure the people that didn’t have insurance but his goal was a socialist takeover of health care. Go the England if everything is so great join the entire terrorist that has ruined that country. The black community has become America’s economic terrorist plain and simple.
