O Vows To Cut Medical Benefits For Active, Retired Military Personnel; Unionized Defense Workers? Not So Much

ONE MORE EFFORT TO FORCE ALL AMERICANS INTO OBAMACARE

To hear Barack Obama talk – particularly when he speaks before members of the military – he’s the greatest champion of America’s Armed Forces in the history of the Union. (Despite having ranked himself as “only” the “fourth” best president in history.) However, according to published reports, should O be reelected, he plans to cut healthcare benefits for both active and retired military personnel – across the board. Oh, and “shockingly”, he plans to leave unionized defense workers’ benefits unchanged. Hmm. Let’s look into this a bit and see if we can figure it out. Here’s propaganda information from a recent White House “fact sheet“:

Today, President Obama will sign an Executive Order directing key federal departments to expand suicide prevention strategies and take steps to meet the current and future demand for mental health and substance abuse treatment services for veterans, service members, and their families.

 Ensuring that all veterans, Active, Guard, and Reserve service members and their families receive the support they deserve is a top priority for the Obama Administration. Since September 11, 2001, more than two million service members have deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan with unprecedented duration and frequency.  Long deployments and intense combat conditions require optimal support for the emotional and mental health needs of our service members and their families. The Obama Administration has consistently expanded efforts to ensure our troops, veterans and their families receive the benefits they have earned and deserve, including providing timely mental health service. The Executive Order signed today builds on these efforts.
Sounds convincing enough, doesn’t it? Let’s check in with Mooch and see what she thinks about the whole thing:
“As America asks more of these families, they have a right to expect more of us. This is our moral obligation. It’s also a matter of national security. The readiness of our Armed Forces depends on the readiness of our military families.”
Yep, sounds like Mooch and O are on the same page, huh? Here’s reality - courtesy of Examiner.com:

In an effort to cut defense spending, the Obama Administration plans to cut health benefits for active duty and retired military personnel and their families while not touching the benefits enjoyed by unionized civilian defense workers.

The move, congressional aides suggested, is to force those individuals into Obamacare, Bill Gertz reported at the Washington Free Beacon.

Gertz added:

“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.”

Military personnel would see their annual Tricare premiums increase anywhere from 30% to 78% in the first year, followed by sharply increased premiums “ranging from 94% to 345% – more than 3 times current levels.”

“According to congressional assessments, a retired Army colonel with a family currently paying $460 a year for health care will pay $2,048,” Gertz wrote.

Active duty military personnel would also see an increased cost for pharmaceuticals, and the incentive to use less expensive generic drugs would be gone. Continue reading…

Well now. How Obama-esque. Say one thing; do another. What a shock.

Here’s the dirty little secret: The Obamas loathe the military; it stands for nearly everything they oppose: liberty, pride in country, hard work, patriotism, and worst of all – American Exceptionalism. Here’s the not-so-little secret: The military doesn’t care all that much for the Obamas, either.

So, the next time you see O or Mooch lying their asses off heaping praise on America’s Armed Forces, promising the moon and the stars (as Mooch said, it’s our “moral obligation,” you know), remember; they’re not speaking to the military at all – they’re simply playing to independents and the few Obamabots who – unlike the Obamas – actually respect America’s fighting forces.

Six more days.

  1. I certainly hate that promises to our vets may not be met. And it’s a double whammy to think unions getting the redistribution.
    From what I’ve been reading we are all facing hard times ahead and not far away, Greek style. Maybe nothing left to redistribute finally. Quoting from recent story about Greek problem…”There’s going to be an explosion of desperate people, they are going to take to the streets”
    Ignatios Pliakos
    Greek Federation of Bank Pensioners

    • Don’t miss the issue here, unit; O has no problem redistributing wealth, but when it comes to the distribution of cuts? Unions win – every time. Another case in point: while O “invested” billions of taxpayer dollars to “save the car companies” – which was actually a massive effort to save the UAW – he wiped out more than 20,000 non-union jobs at Delphi in the process.

      • Well yeah. But when everybody except unions are cut, there won’t be anybody to buy union stuff. Nothin to redistribute or cut. Same ole nothing whether +, -, x. or divided by nothing… nothing is still nothing. That’s the ole you’ve run out of everybody elses money. Like former Delphi employees not now a customer, probably for much of anything. Of course Pelosi said unemployment payment increases spending to help economy.

  2. I retired from the Navy in March of 1998. I was promised full medical benifits for the rest of my life, if I served 20 or more years as well as a military retirement. Well……guess what! I got a letter from Social Security this last August telling me that when I turn 65 in September, 2012, there would be $99.00 per month taken from my S/S for Medicare. My military Tricare would now serve as my supplemental insurance. That is $1,200 per year! THIS IS NOT WHAT I WAS PROMISED!! Now this jerk, who incidently has never served a day in his life, wants to take even more from us? God forbid!

    • Thank you for your personal comment on this issue, Lazy L. By the grace of God, the ship will be righted in six days. Keep the faith.

    • LAZYLRANCH, your story both saddens and infuriates me. I am so sorry the federal government, who is supposed to be the biggest protector of our past, present and future military, has turned it’s back on you and all others who have faithfully served your Country. Thank you for serving the people of this Great Nation… for allowing us safety and comfort through your service. The true patriots of our Great Untied States of America deserve much more than received, and they (you) definitely deserve at least what you were promised! God bless you…

        • LOL Untied may just be it, if that POS is reelected! Thank you for the kind words. I loved the Navy and got to see so much of this world. It was a good career. I enjoyed it and it really made me appreciate this great country even more. Every time I came home from overseas or a deployment, I wanted to get down and kiss the ground. Our United States of America is the greates country on this earth. We may have our problems, but they are minor compared to most other countries.

  3. I’m sure all who come here to read and post respond the same, except Warrioress. :) I served in the middle sixties, not career so not retired from. But friends are and some oldies from late seventies and early eighties. If I didn’t say it just right…don’t like not keeping promises to Lazy L and others I know as far back as Vietnam. First step to correction starts Nov. 6. Sure it won’t be last step, but a start. President…delete and uninstall what’s there now. Go from there.

    • I exercised my obligation to vote the day the polls opened for early voting here in The Great State of Texas and I am proud to say that I VOTED FOR THE AMERICAN!!! I don’t like them not keeping their promises either. I do thank you for your service Unit! And, I pray every dang day that the American people wise up and kick this POS out of office!

      • Same thanks to you sir. Hard to believe how the years go by and hard to believe there are those who don’t care. This seems like yesterday, as do lot’s of memories, had an acquaintance with fellow, really should say friend, but came and went and came again, PSTD, would rent little apartment from me from time to time. Passed sometime in around 2003, prior to hurricanes Ivan and Katrina which allows me to recall about the time. Family tossed his EX-POW car tag (WWII) in garbage. I got it out and still have.

        • I would have done the same with the license plate Unit! Oh, uh, I’m a girl! LOL A tough little Texas girl, but a girl still the same. LOL

          • Funny how boy/girl, black/white never enters my mind on internet. Still our language is gender related and I guess lots of times even race related. Too bad we and the world can’t view everything in an internet sort of way. Also being a sixties vet…never saw a woman officer…so Sir was all I knew. So maybe world is becoming more internet like. What does Rat call left…Obamabots? No thanks…ma’am. Saddle up cowgirl, let’s go vote. :)

    • PTSD, meant, of course above. I getting ole timers. :)

  4. Open wide left. Biden: ‘I’m Going to Give You the Whole Load Today’ All leftist orifices creamed… the regular holes, but also nostrils and even ears,

  5. Still a bit overwhelmed by pics. Most see water. I see the crap in it. Just brings more memories than I like. Post maybe later.

  6. Thanks. But my comments was ugly and I like this blog for limiting that. Waiting for hallleujah Nov.6, results on 7.

  7. We got our notification yesterday.

    How much will the premium for congress and government employees?

    Thankfully we did not enroll in Tricare, and pay our own BC/BS, and we pay into the Medicare program.
