President Neophyte: Wounded Vets Should Pay For Care

Remember a few years back, when Democrats threw a fit over Bush’s supposed ideas on health care for veterans in 2004? This from the Democratic Policy Committe: Bush to Veterans: Pay More, Wait Longer, Receive Less Health Care. Notice this is .gov domain.

Then they had hissy fits over increased co-pays for veterans and other military folks not on active duty, including for injuries sustained when not on duty, such as hurting yourself putting together a backyard swing set, and the media was happy to write stories that made Bush look bad.

Now, though: Senators slam plan for wounded vets to use private insurance

Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki confirmed Tuesday that the Obama administration is considering a controversial plan to make veterans pay for treatment of service-related injuries with private insurance. …

No official proposal to create such a program has been announced publicly, but veterans groups wrote a pre-emptive letter last week to President Obama voicing their opposition to the idea after hearing the plan was under consideration.

The article points out that no final decision is being made, but, just the point that the Obama amateur hour would even consider this shows where their heads are and what they think of the military. On the bright side, as the article points out, there is at least one Senate Democrat who thinks Obambi has lost his mind.

    Interesting now that it’s coming out that Obama may be open to tax health care benefits, which is what he murdered John McCain with during the debates.

    I read somewhere yesterday that even Patty “sneakers” Murray of WA said it would be DOA. Even this dipshit knows we have already paid for this care.
