Obama To Combat Vets:
Pay for your own treatment.

I wonder how all the Pbama Cultists are reacting to this story, huh?

Remember...the Pbama Cultists and the Insane Liberal Clown Posse (ILCP) spent the last eight years hating America, hating the president and hating the U.S. Military.

Now, the Pbama Cultists wrap themselves up in the American flag, put on their facade of patriotism, pretend they support the Soldiers and claim that anyone who doesn't support The Antichrist their Messyiah isn't an American and isn't being patriotic.

We learn now that Pbama plans to make combat Veterans pay out of pocket for treatment. Kansas City Star:

    The Obama administration is considering a plan to make veterans use private insurance to pay for treatment of combat and service-related injuries.

    The proposal would be an about-face on what veterans think is a longstanding pledge to pay for health-care costs that result from their military service.

    In a White House meeting Monday, veterans groups apparently failed to persuade President Barack Obama to take the plan off the table.

    “Veterans of all generations agree that this proposal is bad for the country and bad for veterans,” said Paul Rieckhoff, executive director of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.

    [...]

    Under current policy, veterans are responsible for health-care costs that are unrelated to their military service. Exceptions in some cases can be for veterans without private insurance or who are 100 percent disabled.

    [...]

    “Dead on arrival” is how Democratic Sen. Patty Murray of Washington state described the idea.

    “When our troops are injured while serving our country, we should take care of those injuries completely,” Murray, a member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, told a hearing last week. “I don’t think we should nickel-and-dime them for their care.”

And dead on arrival is how this sick and cruel Pbama Plan should be rendered. Thank god for Democrats like Patty Murray who, like many of us, are shocked by the uncaring, Marxist plans being touted by The Illegal and Illegitimate Prednint. Murry nails it, though, in talking about Pbama's nickel-and-dime mentality, it's his mentality and normal thought process on everything: nickel and dime us to death.


"He's NOT my Führer."

The American Legion, understandably, is not pleased with Pbama's plan. Their PR release can be found here:

To Barry McTeleprompter, this is all about money. He has to balance his stimupork, and his funding of the corrupt ACORN, by taking money from combat Veterans.

Uh...hey...any combat Vets or Military people out there who supported and voted for Pbama? How do you like him now?

The best part will be reading what the Pbama Cultists say online. I'm sure they're all taking the same talking points and declaring that making Veterans pay for treatment they receive for afflictions incurred while in combat is a delightfully brilliant idea.

HAHAHAHAHA... I love it! Obama would walk over a thousand honest injured American Veterans to give full support to one tax cheat. What a piece of dog shit he is. Dave, if this blogging gig doesn't work for you, let's go into autobody work. I know that there are going to be hundreds of "Veteran's for Obama" bumperstickers that are going to be sand-blasted off soon!!
 
I am so disgusted by Pbama's politics and those that support him I could vomit. I hope the Veterans who supported him finally realize what a political disease and charlatan he is.

Oh, Theodore, the blogging gig. Damn. If you know anyone looking for someone who can write, who has a degree in journalism, who can write all types of stories (news, feature, sports, etc) and who can write objectively (obviously my blog has a political bent, which doesn't in any way mean I cannot write objectively about politics) by all means let me know. And the autobody work will our back-up plan! ;-)
 
Let me get this straight... he wants to pay for illegal immigrants and their ailments but not for the men and women in our military who go out and fight for our freedom as Americans.

Sounds like another scheme to eliminate our military by causing less people to volunteer.

But as per usual... I could be jaded.
 
Bug, Brilliant point, as always. You bring another factor into the issue that I hadn't even thought of. You are so on top of things! Excellent. Yep, he's ready to give free health care to illegals but make combat vets pay for it out of their private insurance. Great insight, Bug!
 
Stop! I'm blushing. :o)
 
Can someone pls give a LINK to the trascript where the following came from? I lke to verify before forwarding. Has a lot more PUNCH! Thanks ******************
HERE IS HIS RESPONSE WHEN HE BACKED OFF FROM HIS DECISION TO LET THE MILITARY PAY FOR THEIR WAR INJURIES.........WHAT A EMPTY HEADED PERSON HE MUST BE....SEND THIS TO EVERYONE TO SHOW JUST WHAT HE THINKS OF OUR MILITARY WHO FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY AND GET HURT PROTECTING OUR FREEDOM!!!
I HAVE ANOTHER NAME FOR THIS CREATURE BUT AM TRYING TO STOP USING THAT WORD FOR HIM....IT IS NOT NICE........

Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require veterans carry private health insurance to cover the estimated $540 million annual cost to the federal government of treatment for injuries to military personnel received during their tours on active duty.

The President admitted that he was puzzled by the magnitude of the opposition to his proposal.

"Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained..

"Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn't compute...”

"I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice for their country," Obama continued. "I wasn't asking for blood, just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its history, I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help reduce the nation's deficit.

I guess I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans."

The link I used for the story is the KC Star: http://primebuzz.kcstar.com/?q=node/17662

or you can just click on the link in the story.

I agree with you, as almost all Liberals and Progressives do, Obama has nothing but disdain for the US Military.

Remember when early on the Clinton Admin used the Military to serve tea at White house parties?

The Left spits on the Military. They will never change.
