GA Teachers Healthcare Rally

Georgia teachers rallied at the State Capitol yesterday.

They're calling on Governor Nathan Deal to fix a healthcare system they say is broken.

The group is called Tragic.

That stands for teachers rally to advocate for Georgia insurance choices.

The group was formed in January.

It has more than 14,000 members.

Founder Ashley Cline says the issue is more than paying more for healthcare.

She thinks it's putting people in danger by not going to the doctor when they should.

Governor Deal recently added $100 million to the state health benefit plan to lower the cost to state employees and return co-pays, but some teachers are still skeptical.
