Pay attention ... this is modus operandi henceforth.
We've lost the Republic.
Maverick strikes again.
He really really really doesn’t care much for his fellow veterans, does he?
Here we go...
So McCain’s kid didn’t join the Marines for Tricare...
Really? Ask anyone who has a family what they think...
And adjusting med costs annually to med inflation means costs for the military member and retiree will constantly increase...
Another case of we won’t know what’s in it until it’s passed.
I joined, and rejoined four more times for Tricare. It wasn’t called “TRicare”, it didn’t even exist by that name yet. I wanted it (and was promised it) even more than the pension that was also promised. My medical expenses, and those of my wife have been greater than all the pension payments since 1988. I had the foresight to see this.
I can almost - sorta agree with McLame on one thing. Very, Very few people join at first for Tricare.
But when that first reenlistment comes up the service member starts to weigh the benifits of getting out or staying in.
One benifit that made me re-up and service over 20 was Free Health care for me and mine for life.
“Free” sure is starting to cost more and more.
Veterans Administration waste is unfathomable, and the drugs are no exception.
How did the writer of that article ever get the gig?! I got dizzy attempting to follow the switched syntaxes and double negatives.
Since ratface McLame is involved, he could have just said that the Senate is out to screw the military one more time and we all would have understood completely!
According to Shakespeare, brevity is the soul of wit.
I wonder how many who were congressional bloodsuckers that continue to receive their healthcare. Yet the first ones who are attacked are the active duty / veterans. Not long before there is only one class, the political elite and everyone else. These peckerheads don’t give a damn about God and country. The way they are acting after the election is a prime example of what they think of the citizen of this nation.
McStain looking out for our vets. What a guy!!!
MCCAIN’S COMMENTS ABOVE ARE FLAT OUT, UTTER LIES. LIES, LIES, LIES. No, we did not join for TRICARE. No RearEndHole, we did the years because we were told if we accepted LESS PAY, the years in total away from our families, the 18 moves in 25 years, that we got the pay, and health care for life, for free. Yes, liar, free. That was the deal. That caved in the 1990s, under lies from Congress, the Pentagon and Klinton. Lies. That is what they promised. They are LIARS. They told us that we were promised things by recruiters that recruiters had no authority to make. HOWEVER, the Pentagon, commanders, Joint Chiefs, Congress and White House, ALL KNEW WHAT RECRUITERS WERE DOING AND “PROMISIING”!!! They went along with the promises. Now, that makes them PART OF THE FRAUD that they claim recruiters had no authority to make. They KNEW what recruiters were doing and had been doing it for 50 YEARS!!!!! No McCain, I did not join for the benefits. I joined DURING VIETNAM. I did not go to Canada. I went to Nam. I did what I was suppose to do. IT was when I REENLISTED, that the promises for doing the career time, THIS IS WHAT YOU GET!!! The REENLISTMENT COUNSELORS at unit levels made these promises also. They KNEW that these promises were being made by these counselors. They WENT ALONG WITH THE FRAUD. But, now that they need more money for bombs, they screw 60, 70 and 80 year olds who have no way to get anything insurance to back this up. I am going to have to purchase some type of insurance to back up Tricare now. This is going to cost me double what it would have when I was in my 40s and 50s. PLUS the Tricare insurance fees are GOING UP BY DOUBLE EVERY STINKING YEAR FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. By the time these fools are done, we will have no retired pay check left. I will get it today and hand it all right back in Tricare insurance fees. LIARS. EVERY STINKING ONE OF THEM ARE LIARS!
I’d be willing to pay more, because i can afford it IF ... I knew some lowlife on welfare wasn’t going to get bigger check at the expense of me paying more. But if would help another VET that needs help, I’d pay more.
Attack or kill better Republican bills to get behind closed Senate doors to surrender to their Democrat friends.
