Obama To Cut Healthcare Benefits For Active Duty And Retired Military
Quote: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.

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.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
All these cuts so he doesn't have to reduce welfare spending a penny.

I recall reading that military members and retiree's will be put on Obamacare, disbanding Tri-care or Champus. I read that information back when they were trying to pass Ocare.

And Ta DA, four years later.....drum public welfare we go!

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
Paying for welfare is slavery.
I'm hoping no conservative justices leave/die anytime before we get a real liberty minded president.
Is there going to be an increase in COLA so that the active duty folks can afford medical care for their families? In the first few years I was in, under Carter, I remember that a number of the guys told me that their families, who stayed stateside while they did an overseas short tour, were eligible for food stamps in their home states. How many troops, volunteering to put their lives on the line, are going to have families at home who will be eligible for CHIP? This is beyond embarrassing. Mr. President, a commitment was made to these individuals that the .gov would look out for their families, if this is how you live up to your commitments, I hope you choke!Angry
