Tennessee has joined several other states in trying to pass a Health Care Freedom Act. NO COLAs for granny, retired Military or retired fed employees. BIG NEW fees for Tricare for Life retired over 65 Military's secondary health ins. (DOD bill already passed, delayed but goes into effect 2011)
New Dem mantra: Woof, woof eat dog food granny....ala let them eat cake.
TRI CARE FOR LIFE This from a google search:
This option would help reduce the costs of TFL, as well as costs for Medicare, by introducing minimum out-of pocket requirements for beneficiaries. Under this option, TFL would not cover any of the first $525 of an enrollees cost-sharing liabilities for calendar year 2011 and would limit coverage to 50 percent of the next $4,725 in Medicare cost sharing that the beneficiary incurred. (Because all further cost sharing would be covered by TFL, enrollees could not pay more than $2,888 in cost sharing in that year.)

Congress plans to block Tricare fee increases
By Rick Maze - Staff writer, Oct 7, 2009
Tricare fee increases imposed last week by the Defense Department will be repealed by a provision of the compromise 2010 defense authorization bill unveiled Wednesday by House and Senate negotiators.
The fee increases were announced on Sept. 30 and took effect on Oct. 1, but the defense bill, HR 2647, includes a provision barring any fee increases until the start of fiscal 2011.
Retired Army Maj. Gen. Bill Matz, president of the National Association for Uniformed Services, said the announcement of fee increases was shocking considering that the Obama administration promised earlier this year to hold off on any new fee Tricare fee increases until fiscal 2011.
President Obama and DoD assured NAUS and the entire military family earlier this year that there would rightly be no increases in any Tricare fees in fiscal 2010, Matz said. We took them at their word, and I cant believe that a co-pay increase like this was allowed to go forward, he added.
This thing ain’t gonna work too well. Congress, even liberals, won’t dig Obama undercutting their power. If he tries to do too much, even liberals will impeach him.
If we survive this regime with any shred of a republic intact, we need to have a serious national discussion about greatly reducing the powers of the presidency. You know, something more in line with a country worthy to be called a republic. As this one has shown us, it’s a pretty short step to dictatorship. That proves to me that there is something drastically wrong with the current arrangement.
We had a Republican candidate for governor in Illinois whose solution to a Chicago- and Democratic-dominated legislature would be to use executive orders. I didn’t like it when he said it, either.
This sounds like David Brooks and that other NYT op-ed person stating in Nov. 2008 that BO should just be seated in the White House immediately, forget about waiting for Jan. 20th.
I can go for that -- but only if (quid pro quo) we also bypass the judicial process for executions. Get a rope, she's to be (um) up first! / s
For those of us on these forums, it seems like this is a left-right thing. But eventually it is going to come down to old vs. young. Old want no denials for pre-existing conditions. Young want no mandate. They are mutually exclusive.
For me and my Type II diabetes, my need for insurance trumps my political views.
Yet another district?
Do they plan to pay for it?
There are likely to be GOP pickups in the governor’s mansion and a couple of congressional districts in Michigan. She’s hoping the sweep will be forgotten when she comes up for election again.
Sorry Debbie. That’s the way nazi fascists and commies do things. Unfortunately FOR YOU, you were born in a free country with a republic form of government. You might want to move your ass to North Korea or Iran. Some place like that. It might be more to your liking. Piggie.
Well...she's done wonders for Michigan.
I'd be happy to help a "dump the democrats" frenzy. Surely there's a limepit available somewhere? (100+% / sarc)
America -- a great idea, didn't last.
Not yet (IMO, of course). They have voted against their own interests (staying in power) thus far. The morons among them (Stabenow) will latch on to this latest attempt to accomplish obama’s agenda hoping once these agendas get accomplshed, people will go along, give up, whathaveyou. Some of the liberals are realizeing they’ve already been snookered and will sit this out. We need to throw out the ones up for election in 2010 to drive the point home to the rest.
Can she be recalled??
Is this one of the dems that was upset because Stupak put in that abortion restriction in obamacare? Because she wanted MORE abortions available for ANY reason and covered by taxpayers’ dollars??
The bitch has a condo a mile from me. There goes my property values. She is so ugly I can understand why her husband went out and bought a BJ.
Stab-a-COW is such a lib loser with no ideas of merit. Also, she is such a fat-brained sow that she needs to resign immediately. She won’t so she needs shunned, embarrassed, ridiculed and laughed at. What a total moronic anti-American poor excuse for a human being. Whatever the results of her unintelligible bufoonery, she is a marked one, that’s for sure. Resist. Resist. Resist. Vote the bast**ds out.
Over 2000 pages with LOTS of GOODIES or BENNIES in it being GIVEN to SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS and UNIONS.....when all of us have to pay for it????????
Where is the JUSTICE and FAIRNESS in that????
And WHOEVER heard of a so called health care bill that FAVORS one group over another???
Are we suddenly a KINGDOM where the king and queen and courts jesters in the congress DO NOT HAVE TO BE AN ACTUAL PART OF A HEALTH CARE DEBACLE THEY ARE LAYING UPON ALL OF US?????
And HOW can you LOWER the COSTS of HEALTH CARE without STRIPPING the LAWYERS of their GIGANTIC PAYDAYS (ask johnny edwards about it) and PUTTING IN SOME TORT REFORM INTO THE BILL???????????
Who in the HELL wrote that piece of SHIT, anyway?
No wonder the dems are in such a HURRY to get that piece of shit passed, they DO NOT WANT THE FOLKS TO TOTALLY WAKE UP AND REALIZE the SIZE OF THE SHAFT THEY ARE BEING ASKED TO SWALLOW!
No wonder her husband had to seek out a prostitute in and was caught in a police sting. Her husband would not even touch her with a ten foot pole. In Michiagn we are trying to recall this piece of donkey dung. If the recall is not accomplished I believe she is up for a vote in 2010. Time to scrub this piece of donkey dodo out of MI.
