“Commander in Chief” – Throughout Obama’s tenure, he has taken every opportunity to DIS our military. Clearly, he has no understanding or appreciation for the sacrifices our service members and their families make on a daily basis, year after year! To him, that is not enough sacrifice! Now, he wants them to give MORE! November 2012 we will see how much the Military appreciates his command!

Obama wants military to pay more for health care

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.

OBAMA TO SOLDIERS: PAY UP
THREATENS TO VETO BILL UNLESS IT HIKES
HEALTH CARE FEES FOR SERVICE MEMBERS

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.

Some fear the administration’s proposal is an effort to increase enrollment in the state-run insurance exchanges mandated under the president’s controversial health care law.

The administration urged the House to “reconsider” to fee increase, arguing they are “essential for DOD to successfully address rising personnel costs.”

The House bill has significant bipartisan support, and easily passed by a margin of 299 to 120.

NOTE: It seems that everyday, this President finds new ways to inspire opposition to his regime. It boggles the mind! Apparently this man is so stuck on himself that he cannot conceive the possibility that Americans might refuse his Progressive agenda and cling, with our God and guns, to the America our Founding Fathers envisioned, the America represented by Lady Liberty and Old Glory, the America known as the “melting pot,” the America that millions and millions of People around the world long to experience and share. America is still the most sought after destination, in spite of our failing economy and raging & divided population. It is time we put our differences aside long enough to recognize the greatest danger to our nation and our way of life has found his way into the White House. He MUST be removed!
