Constitutional Emergency

UNBELIEVABLE PRESIDENT

HERE IS HIS RESPONSE WHEN HE BACKED OFF FROM HIS DECISION TO LET THE MILITARY PAY FOR THEIR WAR INJURIES.

WHAT AN EMPTY HEADED PERSON HE MUST BE....

Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require veterans to carry private health insurance to cover the estimated $540 million annual cost to the federal government of treatment for injuries to military personnel received during their tours on active duty. The President admitted that he was puzzled by the magnitude of the opposition to his proposal.

"Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained. "Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks . Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn't compute...” "I thought these were people who were proud to
sacrifice for their country, "Obama continued. "I wasn't asking for blood, just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its history, I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help reduce the nation's deficit. I guess I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans."

Please pass this on to everyone including every vet and their < SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial','sans-serif'; COLOR: black">families whom you know.

How in the world did a person with this mindset become our leader? I didn't vote for him!!!

REMEMBER THIS STATEMENT... "Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice?

If this ASS thinks he will ever get another vote from an Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard service member or veteran of a military service he ought to think it over. If you or a family member is or has served their country please pass this to them. Please pass this to everyone.

I'm guessing that other than the 20-25 percent hardcore liberals in the US will agree that this is just another example why this is the worst president in American history.

Remind everyone over and over how this man thinks, while he bows to the Saudi Arabian king.

On the afternoon of March 18, 2009 Fox News reported that the Obama administration has changed their mind on this plan.

The problem that I have with him is that he even had the "audacity" to think in that manner or way!

Yesterday, Monday, 17 August 2009
, Obama'in his speach to the American Legion, televised, stated: "he would increase service members benefits, make them available quicker and that, that care would be from time of service duty entry to end of service member's lifetime." However ...

On March16, 2009, members of the American Legion met with President Obama where he discussed "a proposal to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries." The non-profit veterans service organization, American Legion, issued a statement voicing its concerns on its web site shortly after the meeting. Click here for statement.

Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion said that Obama “ is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it.”

A March 17, 2009 CNN article said the "chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs vowed Tuesday that the plan would never gain the panel's approval. 'VA's sacred duty is to care for veterans injured in honorable service to our nation, and the department should not turn to wounded warriors' private insurance to pay for combat injures,' said Sen. Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii. 'Under my chairmanship, the Veterans' Affairs Committee will not advance any such legislation.'"

Leslie, you are the one full of the "c..p" I am a Viet Nam Veteran and what are YOU. This is all verified and you just don't like the TRUTH. You, evidentially, are an ObamNation Supporter and you and the Obama Administration are the one's full of it! LOL. His statements were reported by the American Leigon, the VFW and followed up on Fox News when he backed off the idea.

All of the sources posted in regards to this post have been deleted along with all of the replies before yours. I wonder if you are not just an Obama Troll?

By the way, I did try to give you a "courtesy" call Saturday evening at 5:30 PM CST time ....
You want to return the call, all my numbers are posted on the site and I happen to be at 501 223-8866 for the weekend should you dare to want to call.
Thanks Twana !

I Appreciate the action from the Monitor...

It appears that 'OUR,' post on CONSTUTIONAL EMERGENCY'S "PATRIOTS FOR AMERICA" has raised some "IRE" with those who support Obama's Administration and the Trolls viewing here !

Regards to All and keep up the fight to "Save our Nation, Liberties" and to protect us from the Socialist who want to see us as another Third Word Nation and even wost, leaders of The New World Order!
THIS NON-SERVICE CONNECTED IDIOT RUNING THE COUNTRY HAS TO BE STOPPED AND IT WILL HAVE TO START WITH THE CONGRESS AND SENATE!
THROW THE BUMS OUT! IF THEY WANT US TO HAVE A CHANGE IN HEALTH INSURANCE, GIVE US THEIRS! ADD THEM TO THE CURRENT MEDICAD OR MEDICARE AND TAKE OUT THE ABUSES IN THE CURRENT SYSYTEM! THAT WOULD BE REFORM!

The Truth:

On March16, 2009, members of the American Legion met with President Obama where he discussed "a proposal to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries." The non-profit veterans service organization, American Legion, issued a statement voicing its concerns on its web site shortly after the meeting. Click here for statement.

Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion said that Obama “ is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it.”

On the afternoon of March 18, 2009 Fox News reported that the Obama administration has changed their mind on this plan.
It seems some of us ARE working to improve our country against total government takeover. Democracy and individual freedoms are what America is about. If you don't agree, then God help you.

The leader of the nation’s largest veterans organization says he is "deeply disappointed and concerned" after a meeting with President Obama today to discuss a proposal to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries. The Obama administration recently revealed a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in such cases.

"It became apparent during our discussion today that the President intends to move forward with this unreasonable plan," said Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion. "He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it."

The Commander, clearly angered as he emerged from the session said, "This reimbursement plan would be inconsistent with the mandate ‘ to care for him who shall have borne the battle’ given that the United States government sent members of the armed forces into harm’s way, and not private insurance companies. I say again that The American Legion does not and will not support any plan that seeks to bill a veteran for treatment of a service connected disability at the very agency that was created to treat the unique need of America’s veterans!"

Commander Rehbein was among a group of senior officials from veterans service organizations joining the President, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki and Steven Kosiak, the overseer of defense spending at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The group’s early afternoon conversation at The White House was precipitated by a letter of protest presented to the President earlier this month. The letter, co-signed by Commander Rehbein and the heads of ten colleague organizations, read, in part, " There is simply no logical explanation for billing a veteran’s personal insurance for care that the VA has a responsibility to provide. While we understand the fiscal difficulties this country faces right now, placing the burden of those fiscal problems on the men and women who have already sacrificed a great deal for this country is unconscionable."

Commander Rehbein reiterated points made last week in testimony to both House and Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committees . It was stated then that The American Legion believes that the reimbursement plan would be inconsistent with the mandate that VA treat service-connected injuries and disabilities given that the United States government sends members of the armed forces into harm’s way, and not private insurance companies. The proposed requirement for these companies to reimburse the VA would not only be unfair, says the Legion, but would have an adverse impact on service-connected disabled veterans and their families. The Legion argues that, depending on the severity of the medical conditions involved, maximum insurance coverage limits could be reached through treatment of the veteran’s condition alone. That would leave the rest of the family without health care benefits . The Legion also points out that many health insurance companies require deductibles to be paid before any benefits are covered. Additionally, the Legion is concerned that private insurance premiums would be elevated to cover service-connected disabled veterans and their families, especially if the veterans are self-employed or employed in small businesses unable to negotiate more favorable across-the-board insurance policy pricing. The American Legion also believes that some employers, especially small businesses, would be reluctant to hire veterans with service-connected disabilities due to the negative impact their employment might have on obtaining and financing company health care benefits.

"I got the distinct impression that the only hope of this plan not being enacted," said Commander Rehbein, "is for an alternative plan to be developed that would generate the desired $540-million in revenue. The American Legion has long advocated for Medicare reimbursement to VA for the treatment of veterans. This, we believe, would more easily meet the President’s financial goal. We will present that idea in an anticipated conference call with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel in the near future.

"I only hope the administration will really listen to us then. This matter has far more serious ramifications than the President is imagining," concluded the Commander.

And just yesterday our USURPER spoke before the VFW convention and told them all he was going to do to help the vets though funding @ the VA hospitals and pay raises for active duty etc.... . This guy just doesn't know when to stop with his lies. I guess we are all suppose to kneel in his presence and praise him for being our SAVIOR. Being a Life Member of the VFW as well as the AMVETS and American Legion I would not have allowed this bag of wind dishonor the heros of this nation past and present by speaking-in fact he shouldn't have been allowed in the building. I would be proud to help fund his passage and ship his A-s back to Kenya or prison.
