AGAIN, Veterans Get The Middle Finger From The obama Regime.


[TWG Note: Just when I thought I couldn’t HATE that marxist bastard son of a whore any more than I do now, he pulls THIS. The obama regime continues to stick “it” to our Veterans, with nary a whimper from said Veterans. Most of our returning Veterans are being systematically labled with so-called “PTSD” before they even step foot back on our soil, pumped up with drugs and, as a result, DISARMED.  The so-called “Veterans” groups are popping up everywhere, but when one looks into who’s behind them, it’s soros and obama’s klan.  Our Veterans are being used and abused here, treated as nothing more than pawns in the game by this obama regime.  It makes me SICK to see ANY Veteran supporting those marxist pigs. Especially when we see articles such as this one.  HOW MANY TIMES DOES THIS OBAmA REGIME NEED TO SCREW YOU OVER BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE THIS REGIME FOR WHAT THEY ARE?!?!?!?!  First obama cuts $500 BILLION from seniors and disabled, and now he wants to cut $500 BILLION from Veterans healthcare.  obama and the rest of his horrid regime (INCLUDING STATE GOVERNMENTS)  parade our Veterans, police, firefighters and teachers whenever they want to steal more money to line their own coffers.  VETERANS…. WAKE UP.  Don’t allow them to label you with a non-existent mental issue if you are not suffering from such.  YOU ARE BEING DISARMED ON A MASSIVE SCALE.  With PTSD and the drugs they’re pushing, you will NEVER regain your Second Amendment rights.  obama’s thug at DHS already labeled you Veterans as potential “Domestic Terrorists”.  They don’t want YOU owning or carrying firearms.  WAKE UP, VETERANS.  You are being used and abused by the obama regime.  Our Veterans shouldn’t have to pay ONE PENNY toward their healthcare….EVER.]

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……(Con’t)

obama Regime Committed To Hiking TRICARE Fees, Veterans Continue To Support His Regime


[TWG Note: obama and his dim grunts…. sticking it to our Veterans…. AGAIN.  Yet many of our Veterans will support them anyway.  Sure wish those Veterans would OPEN THEIR EYES. Any Veteran who would support marxist obama and his socialist/marxist/communist FASCIST regime is a TRAITOR. Their fellow Veterans from wars past did not fight FOR fascism. They fought AGAINST fascism.]

 

WH Committed to TRICARE Fee Hikes

May 16, 2012 | Terry Howell

The House Armed Services Committee recently forwarded the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2013 (HR4310) to the full House for a vote. The bill added back many of the cuts proposed by the White House, and ignored the DoD’s request to increase TRICARE Fees for military retirees. (Read the original post)

While most expect it to pass in the House, it is also assumed that the Senate will not pass the current version. And, of course the President would surely veto it if it happened to make it through the Senate. On Wednesday the Office of Management and Budget that confirmed that the President would veto the bill. The OMB statement states, “If the cumulative effects of the bill impede the ability of the Administration to execute the new defense strategy and to properly direct scarce resources, the President’s senior advisors would recommend to the President that he veto the bill.”

The OMB’s  ”Statement of Administration Policy” responded to the House bill,  declaring the administration’s “disappointment” with the House for not supporting their budget recommendations. The report highlights specific sections of the HR 4310 that differ from their plan, such as limits to the reduction in forces, BRAC, missile defense, and limitations on reduction of nuclear forces, to name a few.

One of the areas we have been watching closely on the Military Advantage is the proposal to hike TRICARE fees. The statement makes it clear that the WH is committed to using the fee increases to make TRICARE sustainable.

The following is an excerpt from the OMB statement:

TRICARE Fees and Co-Payments:  The Administration agrees that retirees deserve a quality health care benefit.  For this very reason, the Administration strongly supports its requested TRICARE fee initiatives that seek to control the spiraling health care costs of the Department of Defense (DOD) while keeping retired beneficiaries’ share of these costs well below the levels experienced when the TRICARE program was implemented in the mid-1990s.  The projected FY 2013 TRICARE savings of $1.8 billion and $12.9 billion through FY 2017 are essential for DOD to successfully address rising personnel costs.  DOD needs these savings to balance and maintain investments for key defense priorities.  The Administration is very disappointed that the Committee did not support the proposed TRICARE fee increases and included section 718, which, while supporting some fee increases, caps them at levels below those allowed under current law and below the requested authorization.  If section 718 remains in the bill, it would only provide five year savings of $2.6 billion.”

Let your elected official know what you think about this issue.

Obama to cut healthcare benefits for active duty and retired US military

May 20, 2012 2 comments

[TWG Note: This is no surprise to me anymore. obama and his thugs continue to threaten, demonize and ridicule our Veterans while so many of our Veterans don’t even pay attention to it.  Watching the leaders of Veterans groups such as the VFW and American Legion pressing palms, swigging champagne and slapping backs with that marxist pig while he continues to stab them in the back at every turn.   Will our Veterans ever wake up?  I’m not counting on that anymore.]

TRASHING TRICARE

Bill Gertz
The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.

The disparity in treatment between civilian and uniformed personnel is causing a backlash within the military that could undermine recruitment and retention…(Con’t)

Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.

The disparity in treatment between civilian and uniformed personnel is causing a backlash within the military that could undermine recruitment and retention.

The proposed increases in health care payments by service members, which must be approved by Congress, are part of the Pentagon’s $487 billion cut in spending. It seeks to save $1.8 billion from the Tricare medical system in the fiscal 2013 budget, and $12.9 billion by 2017……..
