Obama sending to Congress bill to triple TRICARE premiums
Fox News Channel (live, no link) | 2/29/12

Posted on 02/29/2012 10:09:18 AM PST by pabianice

Just on Fox. Obama sending Congress a bill to triple over the next several years the premiums service people, their families, and retirees will have to pay for TRICARE medical coverage. Dem congressman on Fox claims that the military have too good a deal on medical coverage and "it's only fair to increase their permiums." Repub disagrees. Notes that Obama's buddies in civilian military jobs (i.e. unions) will see no increase.

I remain stunned that the Repubs have been handed enough ammo to destroy Obama's chances of re-election -- and do nothing with it.

I agree. They have an almost unlimited supply of proof that this guy is at war with the American people.

I would like to hear Speak Boehner say, “As my good friend Senator Reid is fond of saying, this legislation is Dead on Arrival.”

Is this the “Change” Obama campaigned on?

I think that most of them just don't care, they are only concerned about themselves. My long dead father once told me that a politicians first duty is to get him/her self elected and their second duty is to get themselves reelected and absolutely nothing else matters.

“I remain stunned that the Repubs have been handed enough ammo to destroy Obama’s chances of re-election — and do nothing with it”.

One might be tempted to believe without reservation, until the power of the media looms large. The perception is Dems good, Repubs bad. Though patently false, “the people” run with it. Dems good, repubs bad. Repeat often.

Makes you wonder doesn’t it? What do the pubbies say? Nothing? Crickets?

My premium went up 37% in February and I renewed with a doubled deductable and got a notice three days later that premium is going up 2.47% on May 1. I doubt we will be able to afford health insurance much longer.

I wonder if the ‘have too good a deal’ logic will be applied to public section employees? I wonder if itll apply to current and former federal elected officials?

If the Republicans did say anything, the media would only carry it if they can portray it as outrageous, racist or elitist.

Boehner could do well to get in the spotlight a little.

Obama is using the primary distractions to sneak some of the most rogue of his agenda in.

COME ON, BOENER! Get your head out of Romney’s ass for a minute to see what else is going on.

First off they’re not premiums. They’re enrollment fees.

I need to remember my good deal when after 20 years with the company I made $28,000 dollars not counting $12,000 in allowances my last full year in the Nav.

While Boehner is playing tidly-winks with Romney and his eye is off the ball, Obama will start screaming about a "Do Nothing Congress".

Next Obama speach, "I tried to tackle the deficit problem with some tough new remedies. Now I didn't want to have to charge our good military brothers and sisters more or anyone else for this Obamacare. But we all have pay our fair share. The republicans in the house don't want to solve problems. They want this country to go broke."

Boehner will look stupid trying to rebut something where the false premise has already been set by the media.

Current Co-worker is a retired Sgt with USAF. His monthly premiums for he and his wife are $36/month. We both work on base, he picks his Rx up for FREE.

Makes a difference when you put actual numbers to what is paid for Tri-Care, doesn’t it? Contrast that to what most working-class Americans are paying for their Health Care Insurance.

They are one in the same - most all bought & paid for hacks - controlled by the elites for the elites. Nothing will change as long as we have a total corrupt government & voted in by a large corrupt populace, which depends on gov.
