On Friday, the Obama Administration threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill in part because it does not include increased health care fees for members of the military, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

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.

I would have expected no less from a military-hating Kenyan who is pushing the country down the road to bankruptcy.

Obama is a disgrace to this country. PLEASE WAKE UP AMERICA He shows how much he hates the military every chance he gets. He and his administration need to go, and anyone else that backs his actions. My husband gave 28 years of his life so that this man could live in this wonderful country and now he is destroying it.

I hope the Republicans understand that this is a big win for them. Pass it, force Obama to veto it, TURN IT INTO A CAMPAIGN ISSUE.

What I find amusing is that while the USDA is encouraging food stamp usage, the Forest Service within the USDA is encouraging the public NOT to feed the wildlife in that it causes dependency and an inability for the animals to take care of themselves.....

What is interesting is that retired military shouldn’t be paying for healthcare at all. When we “signed up” that was part of the deal...free healthcare for life. That was changed some time ago and Tricare for life was introduced. So now we pay, not much, but we are already paying for something that was supposed to be part of our contract.

Let him veto the Bill. He’s the one who’ll have to live with the repercussion.

A welfare queen or illegal can go to any hospital in the country and get FREE medical care. If obama gets his way, a veteran can have his legs and arms blown off in Afghanistan and go to those same hospitals and have to fork over bucks before he/she is even seen for care. “Excuse me doc...I don’t have any arms, so can you take my wallet out of my pocket and take what cash it takes for you to help me.”

Make him veto it and piss off another 15% of the voting population. Find some emergency funding to help the Military... GOD bless them.

Just wait a minute...there must be a mistake. Didn’t mooch-elle o many times spout about how much she and her worthless husband “love” and “support” the military and military families? Not so much, I guess.
