Stacey Abrams PAC Wipes Out $212 Million in Medical Debt for 108,000 People

Stacey Abrams’s PAC has wiped out $212 million in medical debt for 108,000 people. The Fair Fight Political Action Committee did so with a $1.34 million donation to the non-profit RIP Medical Debt, with the face value of the money owed being $212 million. The recipients lived in Georgia, Arizona, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Abrams said about the payment, “I know firsthand how medical costs and a broken healthcare system put families further and further in debt.” The former Georgia gubernatorial candidate went on to say, “across the sunbelt and in the South, this problem is exacerbated in states like Georgia where failed leaders have callously refused to expand Medicaid, even during a pandemic.” While it’s wonderful that Abrams’ PAC chose to do this, the truth is that this should not be necessary in a country as wealthy and developed as the United States. We can find the actions of individuals admirable while finding the circumstances that precipitated them immoral and that’s exactly the lesson to take away from this story.
