Obama to Soldiers:  Pay Up

THREATENS TO VETO BILL UNLESS IT HIKES HEALTH CARE FEES FOR SERVICE MEMBERS

June 29, 2012

BY: 

The Obama administration on Friday threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill in part because it does not include higher health care fees for members of the military.

“The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation,” the White House wrote in an official policy statement expressing opposition to the bill, which the House approved in May.

President Obama’s most recent budget proposal includes billions of dollars in higher fees for members of TRICARE, the military health care system, and is part of the administration’s plan to cut nearly $500 billion from the Pentagon’s budget.

Some fear the administration’s proposal is an effort to increase enrollment in the state-run insurance exchanges mandated under the president’s controversial health care law.

The administration urged the House to “reconsider” to fee increase, arguing they are “essential for DOD to successfully address rising personnel costs.”

The House bill has significant bipartisan support, and easily passed by a margin of 299 to 120.

==================

While the Liberal Think Tank, the Center for American Progress states this:

In its fiscal year 2013 budget request, the Department of Defense has proposed a series of adjustments to military pay, health care, and retirement benefits which aim to place the programs on a more sustainable footing. These changes—analyzed in a new Center for American Progress report by Lawrence Korb, Alex Rothman, and Max Hoffman—would include reducing the rate of increase for military base pay, introducing new fees and co-pays for Tricare services, and the creationof a Military Retirement Modernization Commission to oversee the overhaul of the current system.

The threat that mounting personnel costs pose to military readiness has not gone unnoticed by the nation’s political and military leaders. In the Pentagon’s FY 2013 budget request, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and the Joint Chiefs of Staff highlight the need for significant changes to the Defense Department’s existing pay, health care, and retirement systems.

====================

Our service members need to be treated with dignity and respect.  They have laid their lives on the line and left their families at home to fight for the FREEDOMS we enjoy as Americans!

==========================

The Marxists/Communists cannot let our military be “more than equal” to the masses……they call it “justice”.

Under Communism everyone is equal EXCEPT for the Dictator and his inner circle.

=====================

THIS November 2012, the Elections will NOT be Democrat vs. Republican.

It WILL BE Totalitarianism and Tyranny vs. Liberty and Freedom to CHOOSE.

Another Obama Failed Policy or a “Plan” in the Future; the “More Flexibility” President. While Progressives in America Want to Move $$ Away from Military; Russia and China Form a Security Bloc

=======================

Suggestion:  How about we send personnel from the Center for American Progress to boot camp, then put a rifle in their hands, send them to Afghanistan on the front lines and see how they feel about our military when they return to the U.S.?

GOD BLESS OUR MILITARY!

WE MUST STAND UP FOR OUR MILITARY AGAINST GOVERNMENT INTRUSION into THEIR PAY, THEIR HEALTHCARE and RETIREMENT PAY!

  1. The thing I don’t understand about the Republican ideology is that they demand spending cuts on everything except the military. They complain about the national debt, but they refuse to allow there to be cuts in military spending.

    ========================

    Allen West, a retired Lt. Col. of the Army has said there ARE cuts that can be made to the military.

    Once he said there are more Admirals at the Pentagon than there are Naval Ships in the USN.

    $1,000 toilets……

    Cuts can be made in the military, but NOT at the expense and safety of our servicemen and servicewomen serving our Country to preserve our Liberty and Freedom.
