The obama/panetta Team Stick It To Our Veterans AGAIN…..


[TW Note: Hmmm, I’ll bet the winner of this scheme, UnitedHealthCare, contributed substantially to the obama regime while touting the “benefits” of the obamacare scheme, while TriWest probably did not support it.  I smell the putrid stench of RATS. We’ll see.  Somehow, this horrid regime continuiously spits in the faces of our Veterans while maintaining the support of the glassy eyed IDIOTS amongst them. WHEN WILL OUR MILITARY WAKE UP? They are soon going to find themselves shoved under the obamacare scheme.]

The Pentagon has agreed to pay a health care provider about $200 million more than a competing contractor’s bid for military retirees’ Tricare services at the same time as it is asking retirees to pay large increases for their care.

UnitedHealthcare won the bid last week over TriWest, the health care provider for retirees in 21 western states since 1996, despite TriWest’s bid on the three-year, $20.4 billion contract that was about $200 million less than UnitedHealth’s winning offer, according to a source close to the competition.

“We are extremely disappointed that the Department of Defense chose to reverse their decision [in awarding the contract],” said David J. McIntyre Jr., president and CEO of the TriWest Healthcare Alliance in a statement issued Friday.

“For the past 16 years, we have worked tirelessly and with the highest levels of respect to meet the healthcare needs of West Region military families who have very much become our family.”

McIntyre said details on the losing bid and the Pentagon’s reasons for picking UnitedHealthcare will be disclosed later this week.

      It’s a slow suicide we’re witnessing today.

      I will NEVER forgive those who support this crap. I’ll never forget and I’ll NEVER forgive them.

    Not to mention, UHC is not only more expensive, they are not known for the best plans in the world either. Sounds like somebody got paid on this one.

      I would GUARANTEE that somewhere in this scandal is a payback and support for the obama regime, as well as support for the obamacare schemes. Based on how this regime operates, there is no doubt in my mind this is one Hell of a dirty deal at the expense of our Veterans…. yet our Veterans will still stand there, smiling and pressing palms with that SOB. Makes me SICK.
