This is suppose to be "the land of the FREE and the Brave." Many of us have gone to war to keep these truths sound and protected. Laws like this even being suggested is a slap to us and all our Comrades In Arms. What the hell are we fighting for?......Bob
Well, you 'vet's' should also be buying your own health insurance bob..
In case you missed this on Fox, the only station to air it, Obama did propose that the military instruct our soldiers to purchase their own heath insurance.
I don't care what your political views are...you must read this. Another look at our president, unbelievable!!!!
And I just checked Snopes - he did propose this.
HERE IS HIS RESPONSE WHEN HE BACKED OFF FROM HIS DECISION TO LET THE MILITARY PAY FOR THEIR WAR INJURIES..........SEND THIS TO EVERYONE TO SHOW JUST WHAT HE THINKS OF OUR MILITARY WHO FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY AND GET HURT PROTECTING OUR FREEDOM!!!
Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require veterans 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."
DOES HE PAY FOR HIS OWN INSURANCE???? NO, WE DO!!!!!!
Please pass this on to every vet and their families whom you know..
It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from his government."
