What’s not to like? He has to come up with the money for the 14% pay increase he gave to members of the White House staff with taxpayer dollars.
Will there be anyone, any constituency left to irritate before November 6th? Perhaps Barry needs a C.T. scan of his brain?
Remember Obama’s earlier brain child that since men and women in the military volunteered they should provide their own insurance? Then of course his brain child of cutting combat pay unless a soldier was being shot at?
Obama has one idea what to do with taxes, raise them and spend the money by redistributing wealth in the name of social justice, and cut as much money from the military that few will want to join in the future.
If the military do not get free medical then who would volunteer to put their life on the line? The very few! How hard do you think it will be if America cannot get volunteers for the military? If the military is phased out, and that is exactly what is happening as we look the other way, then what?
How does America defend itself without a military force? REMEMBER, this change is what Obama promised when he campaigned for office – a unilateral disarmament of America!
Not to worry, the “Silent Majority” rose up immediately have Hillary Care went down in flames. There there was no easily used internet, Email, bloggers, Tea Parties and the plethora of talk show hosts that hold this fool’s feet to the fire on a daily basis.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m j.C. and I approve this message. (see Obama at his worst below)
On Friday, Barack Obama threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill partly because it did not include higher health care fees for members of the military. That’s right. Obama was out to veto a bill because they didn’t raise fees for health care on military personnel. This is just another example of his total lack of appreciation of the military and disgust with America in general.
In an official policy statement the White House wrote, (There he goes with the blame game, why not sign an executive order sparky if you were disappointed? You have run around congress so many time in the last 3 years and 7+ months you could be an Olympic Track Star. )
In the most recent budget proposal by the Obama administration (no budget has been in effect the entire time Obama has been in office), billions of dollars worth of higher fees for members of TRICARE were proposed. It’s one of the administration’s means of cutting $500 billion from the Pentagon’s budget.
Obama makes this move against what the House has already approved in May, which is HR 5856. It outlines a clear and precise military budget. But Obama’s senior advisers say that he will veto it. The House bill has bi-partisan support.
It appears that our own military cannot depend on the psuedo commander-in-chief to look out for them while they continue to look out for America.
Should the bill make it to his desk and he veto it, it will be another in a long line of issues that Barack Obama has set up that Republicans can easily slam him for in this election season, but more than that, it will mean that it only becomes more and more difficult for struggling military servicemen and their families.
