Your 'p'rresident, Hussian Obama and his Progressive/Marxist allies in the Congress continue their efforts to reduce Our US Military to that of a 3rd World Nation. They not only ignore but are going out of their way to ignore ALL the PromiseS made to our Military Heros & their Famlies for Complete Medical Coverage.
Prior to WWII these famlies were give Free Medical Care as part of the Promise to those that inlisted, and if they retired, they, their Wives and any Dependent Children that this medical ccoverage would continue WITH OUT ANY CO-PAYS. Since that time that time the Progressive/Marxists and their Presidential Buddies have whittled away at this promise and today that FREE CARE PROMISE IS JUST A MEMORY.
It is my expectation from talking to Activey Duty personnal that THE MAJORITY WILL NOT RE-ENLIST DUE TO BRAKING PROMISSES MADE AND THE WAY THEY ARE FORCED TO WAGE WAR NOT TO WIN BUT AS A WAR OF ATTRITION.
I, AS A RETIRED VETRAN, WILL NO LONGER ENCOURAGE MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY, FRIENDS AND OTHERS TO ENTER THE MILITARY IF THIS DISTRUCTION DOES NOT STOP AND ALL THE PROMISES MADE SINCE WWII ARE RESTORED! ! !
THEY FIGHT ARE WOUNDED AND DIE FOR US, THE LEAST WE CAN DO IS TO INSURE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT RESTORES THE PROMISES MADE "IN OUR NAME".
Is Sequestration Real or Political Brinksmanship?
According to my sources both Chairman Miller and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Chair of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, have contacted the OMB asking if they intended to touch the VA budget. Neither has received an answer; it is as if the OMB has gone darkened ship.
Rep. Miller has gone as far as to ask President Obama to exempt the VA from sequestration. The Congressman says that to date he has not been given a formal response other than a statement by an OMB spokeswoman, who stated that “…the administration will provide sequester implementation guidance later in the year.”
The OMB leaves a lot of room for speculation. Perhaps keeping their plans close to the vest is the OMB’s best means of leveraging Congress to find a solution, without actually coming out and threatening veteran services. After all fear works. Last year the government used the fear of a government shut-down with its associated late military pay checks and limited VA services to help reach yet another “Continuing Resolution.” BTW – I think we can look forward to that happening again later this year. The truth is, military servicemembers, veterans, and their families are getting tired of being used as political pawns in a game of budgetary chicken, they want no part of it. Most feel it’s about time to take military pay and veteran’s services off the table for good and stop using fear tactics to achieve political goals. To answer the headline question… Yes
