It’s called caring for our troops and veterans in DC:
The Obama administration on Friday threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill in part because it does not include higher health care fees for members of the military.
“The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation,” the White House wrote in an official policy statement expressing opposition to the bill, which the House approved in May.
President Obama’s most recent budget proposal includes billions of dollars in higher fees for members of TRICARE, the military health care system, and is part of the administration’s plan to cut nearly $500 billion from the Pentagon’s budget.
Feeling the love?
See you in November.
Obama is NUTS - plain and simple nuts. Let us eliminate his health care. What purpose does he serve?
500 billion from medicare, almost the same amount from the military, does this finally open your eyes to what the deathcare bill is really all about? The murder of seniors, the disabled and babies!!!!! Seniors, you have been given the death penalty by Hussain and the liberal loon democrats and the rino's!!!!! Meanwhile the illegals and the leeches get everything! Only the rick will be able to afford healthcare, the poor must dies and do it quickly so Hussain can bring in more illegals and Muslims!
I never accepted this imposter as the President and never will!
He is a fraud and I see the day when him and the perpetraiters to
the greatest fraud ever in the history of our great republic are finally
convicted and real justice carried out.
I just hope that our military realises what this fraud is doing. These
brave heroes risk everything all for the cause of freedom, and this
idiot wants them to pay more. All the time his administration wants
to have "food stamp parties" for people who give a crap.
FIRE OBAMA IN NOVEMBER!!!
You know what the saddest part of all is? Many in our present military ranks would actually qualify for financial aide and food stamps because we pay them so little for the horrific job they must do.
THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS = EVIL , I PRAY YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO IN NOV. AND AFTER.
I know exactly what I will do, the question is, do you?
I get so tired of hearing this "lesser of two evils" garbage.
As a good commander in chief should do, Mr President should lead by example. If he wants to trash the promise to the veterans, and increase their cost, let's see the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government all eliminate their entire health care program, FIRST! Let's figure out how much money is saved ending the congressional helathcare system.
Then we can talk increasing cost to those who answered the call.
I would never in any way shape or form ever lift so much as a little finger to harm the head cur in the white house but if someone were to do us all a favor and put the cur to sleep permanently I would celebrate and get drunk like I haven't in 30 years or more.
it's not just barry... panetta's responsible too (part of the plan for "gutting" the military)... and, even rumsfeld was for hiking TRICARE fees... i think they figure that in order to keep costs down, by taking away healthcare (so they can have better equipment)... but, i agree w/ everyone else here, in that our men & women who are putting themselves in harm's way deserve the best healthcare (during & after); and, i think they should take away the health benefits of all those in washington...
or, how about putting them on TRICARE, and then maybe they'd work a little harder to preserve & protect it (while keeping the costs down)???
I will be damm if i would hide or run.I would shoot to kill and wouldnt give a damm .Most of our agents prob. have families they would like to go home to.Just saying
