The man who isn't our legitimate president
once again is targeting those who served in uniform either at home or
for the lucrative and insane non-declared wars over the past 50
For the sake of full disclosure, my husband
is a retired U.S. Army Colonel who served honorably for 27 years. He
served in Viet Nam as well as assignments in Germany and the Pentagon.
While John was active duty, he had medical coverage. When he detached,
we paid for our medical coverage and still do with
Like millions of other service members, at
the time he enlisted, John was made promises regarding health care.
All those written promises have been broken. The poltroons in the
Outlaw Congress have no problem sending our troops into harm's way and
when they come home mangled, maimed or with mental trauma, the issue
becomes money to take care of them. For old soldiers like John, the
premiums are not as high as the private sector; that is a fact. Had
John been killed while in uniform, the taxpayers would have saved
money. John was also forced into Medicare, which picks up part of his
medical costs with more borrowed debt thanks to every single
incumbent in the U.S. Congress.
Obama/Soetoro has never served in the
military. As a matter of fact, how many remember this

Obama to cut healthcare benefits for active
duty and retired US military
"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
"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.
"Many in Congress are opposing the
proposed changes, which would require the passage of new legislation
before being put in place.
"We shouldn't ask our military to pay our
bills when we aren't willing to impose a similar hardship on the rest
of the population," Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon, chairman of the
House Armed Services Committee and a Republican from California, said
in a statement to the Washington Free Beacon. "We can't keep asking
those who have given so much to give that much more."
"Administration officials told Congress
that one goal of the increased fees is to force military retirees to
reduce their involvement in Tricare and eventually opt out of the
program in favor of alternatives established by the 2010 Patient
Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.
"When they talked to us, they did mention
the option of healthcare exchanges under Obamacare. So it's in their
mind," said a congressional aide involved in the
Of course, try to shove everyone into the
unconstitutional "universal" health care program that is
already a monstrous mess and if allowed to exist will finish off
bankrupting this country.
I want you to look at the numbers cited
above: "It seeks to save $1.8 billion from the Tricare medical
system in the fiscal 2013 budget, and $12.9 billion by
For years in Iraq and a decade in
Afghanistan, the cost has been roughly $2 BILLION borrowed dollars a
month spent on those unconstitutional, immoral, grotesque invasions
and continued occupations. In 2003, it was actually $5 BILLION
borrowed dollars a month.
Save $1.87 billion next year by penalizing
veterans. That's less than the cost of one month in Afghanistan, Iraq
and our illegal military "operations" in Pakistan to stop
the "war on terror."
Obama/Soetoro's lackeys want to save $12.9
billion dollars over the next six years. That would be the cost of
about seven months of "doing business" in those countries by
penalizing veterans. Increase the cost of their health care so we can
keep killing innocent civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan and
Better to continue spending $2 billion
borrowed dollars a month on those damn "wars" than provide
affordable health care for veterans. Better to spend nearly $1 MILLION
borrowed dollars a year for one soldier in Afghanistan to protect
opium poppy fields:
Keep voting back your incumbent so you can
work your fingers to the bone to pay taxes for our soldiers to stand
around in opium poppy fields while the illegitimate Obama/Soetoro
administration wants to penalize veterans.
The U.S. government is broke; swimming in
unpayable debt. DOD's budget can only be set by the Outlaw Congress,
not the Executive Branch. All bills of expenditure must originate in
the U.S. House of Representatives, not the Oval Office.
DOD's budget is always full of fraud and
waste and those responsible for allowing it to continue: every
incumbent in the U.S. Congress. I know because I worked for the
Department of the Army and the Air Force where I became a federal
whistle blower. I filed a fraud, waste and abuse claim against my own
job. What a circus that turned into.
Instead of honoring the promises made (and
broken) to veterans and their families, YOUR incumbent and mine needs
money to fund the list below:
That $125 million dollars stolen from you
and me is borrowed money since the people's purse is overdrawn
trillions of dollars; at that time $12.7 TRILLION. By the time you add
the interest, we the people will owe $200 MILLION more to the bankers
to help Pakistan with their power stations.

Because of the continued wasteful spending
that has been going on by BOTH parties for decades, it's time once
again to screw veterans unless they climb in the face of their
incumbent. Not every service member retires as an officer. There are
far more "field grunts" than officers and they are the ones
who will be impacted the most.
Changing the rules decades after the
promises are made is dishonorable, but then what else do we expect
anymore from the crooks, cowards and criminals that infest Washington,
