"It was Bill Pascrell - lunatic liar from New Jersey"

The Senate bill only exempted TRICARE for Life and Veterans health programs. I don't know what they may have addressed in the reconciliation, however Representative Skelton, Chair of the House Armed Services Committee, says there is no exception in the bill for TRICARE for current active duty military members or military family members, there is no exception for TRICARE Reserve Select, and there is no exception of any TRICARE for military retirees prior to age 65.

All of these categories will be subject to the IRS tax of up to $2,250 per year.

I know. But that post about Steve King was written immediately after. I fairly confident that he was sincere. But whatever does happen....they are going to continue to fight as we all will in our own way. The line has been drawn in the sand and war has been declared openly. We will respond in kind.

For my part, I've found the cause of the rest of my life - working to defend the Republic and our liberty against these liberals. They wanted this confrontation; this President has chosen to divide us as a people.

If this goes into effect, I suspect our son who is special needs will eventually be turned away at the ER if he would need care.

I think there's a penalty in there for the top per-patient charging doctors, like in Mediscare.

Why oh why couldn’t they have forseen one party rule

They did not anticipate parties as such. Shifting factions yes, but not the sort of thing we have now. If it was up to me there would be no recognition of parties in any governmental functions. Let them conduct their own primaries if they wish, but anyone can run in the general election. No "majority leader", no rules whatsoever that recognize the existence of parties.

Parties, particularly the 'Rat part, exist to elect candidates. That's fine as far as it goes, but they should be officially directly recognized.

We got the virtual unknown BO because the 'Rat party saw that having a black candidate would give them, including all those Congressional candidates, a big electoral boost. Otherwise we'd have Hillary.

Our preacher today was talking about how the Jews turned away from God. Even to the point of worshipping false gods and sacrificing their children to the false gods.

God gave them warnings (through the prophets) but they would not listen. Finally, the Jews were sent into exile for 70 years (Babylon). Of course they came out much the better for it. Until they stopped listening again and the process repeated itself.

America is in pretty much the same place. Worshipping false gods (take your pick of several), and sacrificing our children to them.

The part that really bothered me was that you said you and your daughter weren’t “suited” to the military. There’s a big difference between “not suited” and “unable” to serve. And, it sounds that you were unable to serve. No shame in that.

I happen to think that you’re right if you’re saying that some/many people shouldn’t go into the military, but not because they’re not “suited” to the life. I know how much our troops give up to serve, and generally speaking, they do it out of love of country.

If you’re asking if I think Obama is bad, hell yes. We just cannot continue to loft people like George Bush to spend us into oblivion and smile because he’s on our side.

It would be more appropriate to address this as Congress’ problem but Bush did contribute heavily and that was a tragedy for the nation.

Pascrell basically said that the GOP should be ashamed of themselves for trying to scare veterans that they won’t get covered etc. under this bill.

That REALLY pissed off our side- and they asked for that to be stricken from the record because it was dishonest.

- MEanwhile- the FACT is- people like my son who have Tricare will NOT be considered insured- SO- they will have to pay the damn $2,000 fine every year...

You can see why vets are a tad upset...
