I was just informed that Paul Battles is co sponsor of a bill that would strip teachers of health care aft they retire. I wonder if his retired wife who is a teacher will loose hers. I think Rev Battles has forgot where he came from!!!!!!!! I just hope this is not true anyone know the facts on this issue

If you work in the private sector you don't have insurance after you retire so you typically work until retirement age so you have medicare benefits. Just curiouis why government employees should have anything diffrent or special?

Why should teachers be any different than anybody else. Military retirees get free insurance but they earn it. Teachers sit on their fat asses their whole career. The teachers in Bartow County are dumb as hell anyway.

I hope Paul does push it through.

I wouldn't classify all teachers in that category but there are a good many that fit your description. Seems teachers as well as other vocations are taking the entitlement mentality to a higher level. Bartow has some of the best, brightest, hardest working teachers in the state!! Unfortunatly we have several that complain an do the bare minimum everyday, just enough to keep their job. The teacher unions are a big part of the problem

Teachers unions are illegal in GA. Teachers can join the GAE or PAGE, but theose organizations can't operate as unions here
