If you’ve been under a rock the last few weeks you wouldn’t know that statewide, teachers (including retired teachers and other state employees) were quite unhappy with the new health plan
jammed down their throats offered them for 2014. So unhappy in fact, that as a loud and angry substantial voting block in an election year, they weren’t willing to take the usual excuses (Blame Obama. Blame Bush. Blame the cat.) sitting down.
Governor Nathan Deal announced that “changes” (read them here) were being approved today. Funding for these changes will come from the insurance plan’s reserve fund.
The $100 million dollar blink. Only time will tell if it remains a thorn in the Governor’s side come November.
