I am one. I am simply sick and tired of these stinking RINOs. That is why I left the party. That is why I don’t give them money any more. That is why I ONLY vote in those races that I actually agree with a candidate and vote for him/her and move on. I skip the RINOs and the punks and only vote those races. I did not vote for the puke in the RINOs for president in the last race. I saw no difference in either one of the One World Government pukes so I voted for neither. If they do not fall in with what I believe or close to it, no vote. Simple as that. Dudden take me long to cast my ballot now.

From older stuff I read McCain is behind this push to gut Military healthcare, active duty will see a big jump in premiums, TRI Prime will see rates go up and higher co-pays, Tricare Life for those over 65, will see a third co-pay increase in 2014, with a big push to force Express Scripts for your meds. Trouble with that is it is ALL GENERIC, and from the cheapest manufacture or country they can get it from. Many drugs are flagged, even generics. UPS throws them on your porch for any one to steal.

What if you have to go to the ER in the middle of the night and they give your a RX, well ES is is not a store you can just go to and get it filled. And that is the direction we are being pushed. And woe be to drug sensitive patients, who have to have their RX from the exact same manufacturer. Or the name brand.

Eventually they will force us onto 0’care. Because neither TFL or Medicare truly meet 0’care regs.

Every Romney/Ryan supporter in the primaries owes me an apology. Nothing short of this will do.

Those RINO’s were caught out. They hoped nobody would notice.

Gutless Republicans — So true!

I’d like to see Paul Ryan lose his seat.

Here we have a Senate that wants to reward illegals by giving them citizenship and SS, and Food Stamps, they want to raise the minimum wage for fast food workers, and they want to F**k disabled veterans.

THIS is the real America. The America these Vets fought for?

NOT.

The America we need to fight for is an America with patriots in the Congress and free from liberalism, Democrats, and RINO’s

Paul Ryan and Patty Murray are going to a VA hospital today. Ryan is going to string fishing line at ankle height in front of the entrance doors to trip the ailing Veterans. Patty Murray is there to take photos of the ailing Veterans hitting the ground. The photos will be put on a Democrat fundraising letter.
“See these Veterans hitting the cement! This one’s artificial leg fell off! Isn’t it fun! Send $10 to the Democrat Party so we can continue to try and humiliate those who volunteered their all for us!”

The decision to take money from retired Veterans (you have to call it that or the Democrats will quibble about what a “cut” is) was not made on the basis of any reason to help our nation. This money was to be taken from retired Veterans and given to supporters of the Democrat party. The ONLY purpose for taking this money from retired Veterans was to buy votes for the Democrat party. Anybody who says different, including Republican politicians, is a goddamn liar.

This week the Senate voted across party lines to pass a bill that would reduce the cost of living adjustment (COLA) for military retirees including disabled retirees and survivors.

Due to its incompleteness, the above line is not true. The GOP voted against ALL military retirees. While I certainly understand how unfathomable to attack disabled retirees, it is important to be clear.

Every single one of those retirees, whether currently disabled or not, could well have been disabled due to putting themselves at risk during their years of service.

The US Government broke faith with the military. All of it. It attacked the military. It has had the military on the firing line since Gulf War I under GHW Bush, followed by Bosnia/Kosovo, followed by Afghanistan, and Irag. Three of those operations continue to this day, not to mention the Sinai and Korea missions.

We shouldn't undervalue the service of those who served in any capacity with any honorable result.

The GOP is certainly finding ways to depress the vote in 2014.
With this despicable act and the coming amnesty, they may get their wish.
It’s almost like they wish to retain the status quo, vs pumping up their
base and electing a lot of new Tea Party candidates.
We all know Tea Party candidates are not welcome in DC..

I joined the Military in 1975 and remember being spat upon by my fellow citizens whom I took an oath to defend. Now once again our Political class spits on the Military class. I spent 25 years on active duty and still work for the Air Force as a simple servant. I still think and act like the Senior NCO I rose to from ranks during my interesting career providing the same level of service (one of these days I’ve got to learn to be a worthless slimy civilian it would really bring down the stress level).
I also work with a large community of retired Air Force Officer’s and NCOs who are either simple servants or contractors in my current program. Each and every one of use left the service broken men and women and this is how we are thanked for the years of selfless service, long deployments, substandard pay, living conditions not fit for welfare families (got to love that base housing), and family separations with the lies of free medical, dental and eye care for life for 20 years or more of service. Bull excrement! They have poked the bear and push back is coming my slimy lying crap weasel RINO Congress critter (voted for this bill) will have a primary challenger this coming election year not that I have much hope the system will work to get rid of him. At least I know he will stay out our county as we have a very large community of retired Military that would love to make him the guest of honor an old fashioned neck tie party.

Patty Murray is claiming that specific cut was Paul Ryan’s idea.
And it fits into to his entitlement reform theme so its believable.

Once it became an agreed upon Republicans jumped for it to avoid any more shutdown fights.
