The day after Barack Obama won a major victory for his signature health care overhaul legislation -- which he and his allies insist will ultimately LOWER health care costs for Americans -- the president is threatening to veto a defense authorization bill in part because Congress is not acting to RAISE health care costs for American servicemen.
The Washington Free Beacon has the story here, and I've also excerpted it below the page break. It remains to be seen to what extent the Obama-boosting liberal media will acknowledge the president's hypocrisy:
The Obama administration on Friday threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill in part because it does not include higher health care fees for members of the military.
“The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation,” the White House wrote in an official policy statement expressing opposition to the bill, which the House approved in May.
President Obama’s most recent budget proposal includes billions of dollars in higher fees for members of TRICARE, the military health care system, and is part of the administration’s plan to cut nearly $500 billion from the Pentagon’s budget.
I’m so glad that my husband and I committed our entire productive adult lives to the security of this country. /s
I am so sorry that we have this POS as our CIC. God bless you and your husband for your service and may this POS rot in H*ll.
In the end, I guess we didn’t do it for him anyway! :-p~~~
The media knows that would hurt Obama (Osama) so therefore they will find arguments to justify such action and blame the RNC (or whomever is convenient) for "forcing" (Osama) to take such a drastic course of action to get his agenda passed and into law.
I only clicked on it because I couldn't believe Bambi might want better health care for those in military service.
It’s easy to understand your disgust and sarcasm.
I do hope you know there are millions of us out here who are indeed glad about and profoundly grateful to Americans like you: the best of the best.
I’m over it. We’ll outlast this jerk. :-)
Heck, if we can survive 6 full deployments, we can survive this presidency. Clinton came and went. Bush came and went. Obama will come and go, too.
I have faith that America will come to her senses.
Well, God bless you.
I’m not so sure. This one has really shaken my confidence.
I saw John Roberts speak at the law school near here three or four years ago, and he was quick, cogent, humorous, brilliant even, in my judgement.
The faculty and others were throwing barbed (maybe poisoned) questions at him and he knocked them down and battled back. Stood his ground. Conservative, conservative, conservative, with much conviction, and wit and insight too.
Yet this opinion of his was the most convoluted, dishonest piece of garbage I have read from anybody this side of Krugman.
He has undermined Constitutional authority, he has cracked the bedrock, he has thrown open the gates.
Maybe I’m overreacting but this seems to me as bad as Roe v. Wade and 9-11. I know that sounds terrible but it seems to me a true curse upon the land.
Thanks again for your service, and your brave words too.
That’s what the internet is for, people. We get the word out. Vets & Healthcare? Election year double whammy. Dear Leader won’t DARE raise health care costs on the military right before the election. And all those congressmen have a lot of townhall meetings to go to between now and November. Who needs media when you’ve got Facebook, Twitter, and Talk Radio?
“Im so glad that my husband and I committed our entire productive adult lives to the security of this country. /s”
I’m sure that we all are grateful to you for that, but I know that you didn’t make all those sacrifices so that your children would inherit a bankrupt USA. We’re all going to have to make some sacrifices over the next several years to restore the economic health of our country.
Obama To Military: Pay Up
Barack Obama threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill partly because it did not include higher health care fees for members of the military. Thats right. Obama was out to veto a bill because they didnt raise fees for health care on military personnel. This is just another example of his total lack of appreciation of the military and disgust with America in general.
In an official policy statement the White House wrote,
The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation.
He wants to drive Tricare into the ground so we can all use his “exchanges”.
Somebody needs to expose this but since he owns the media, I don’t see it happening. ;-(
Roberts saw a chance to help his legacy and the left. Apparently, this is what is important to him. Traitors come in all shapes, sizes and colors. And in this case, the Supreme Court of the United States make it possible for this traitor to fulfill his dream of greatness, and now he belongs to the damned.
We lost a battle, but not the war. This has inflamed We the People to fight hard and win. I would hope, really hope, that the military knows who this POS in the White House is, and that they will stand with We the People to remove him in November.
Like Michele Bachmann said recently on Mark Levin's radio show, do not help the enemy. Do what you can to put obsticles in their way, to thwart their efforts, until
WE WIN, and then of course, our vigilance must be never ending, because freedom is never. Our jobs, our property, our lives will be in jeopardy, to be sure, but in war you have to lose sometimes in order to win.
Not to mention the other socialist, adolescent, psychotic punks in congress and throughout the government.
