“The Support They Have Earned”

Joining Forces is a national initiative that mobilizes all sectors of society to give our service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned.”

Now, about those cushy low Tricare fees . . . we haven’t earned those, I reckon:

“Once again, we see that Obama’s supposed devotion to military families–a cause purportedly dear to the First Lady’s heart–does not extend beyond using military families as political props . . . .”

Sigh.  I hate complaining when the particular federal teat from which my family happens to feed threatens to dry up a bit.  I understand that our paycheck is dependent upon the earnings of hard-working American taxpayers.

But I’ve also heard what it’s like when those that gave their all come home to nationalized healthcare.  And then I learn that “The Obama administration ostensibly wants to help the Pentagon save money; the real motive is to make TRICARE less attractive than costlier Obamacare exchanges.”

So then I know that our President would prefer to dump wounded American military members into an American NHS.

It makes perfect sense, really.  As things stand now, there are concrete benefits to traditional civilian healthcare insurance:  choice of doctors (particularly when compared to Tricare Prime), continuity of care, and competitive market forces.  The only thing that makes Tricare Prime attractive?  Oh yeah, the low fees and copays.

So . . . if the Obama Administration doesn’t want anyone to have those traditional, concrete benefits of choice, continuity, and competitive market forces . . . what’s the point of giving those pesky military members a lower price than the rest of the peasants?

And really, if the whole nation must suffer the consequences of IPAB and the rest of Obamacare, why shouldn’t the military do the same?

I’m not surprised.  Shoot, I thought President Obama would gut military services a lot quicker than he has.

Um, guys?  Could you do a military wife a favor?

Could you vote this jerk out of office before he does any more damage to the country?

Rhetorical question, of course.

UPDATE:  Here’s a better explanation of the situation:

“Essentially, Barack Hussein Obama would rather force military families to partake in Obamacare welfare-backed programs rather than using Tricare, and he had hoped to do this by tripling their premiums in just 5 years.

All the while, the report states that Obama leaves his true friends, the ‘unionized civilian defense workers’, unscathed by tax and premium hikes. . . .”

    We’ll do our best, and like you guys, our best is pretty damned good.

    It’s sad, really. Defense is one of the most important functions of the federal government, and yet O doesn’t care much for fairly compensating our military.

    I guess I was snoozing when it happened, but didn’t active duty military and their families used to get “free” healthcare?
    I just found out I have a costly disease,( possibly caused by my military service.), so I’m sure glad for the VA.

    To everyone still reading and commenting: thank you so much for sticking around. I’ll be able to respond to comments and hang out over at ya’lls more soon. We had a whirlwind week of neighborhood scouting and house hunting, which I tried valiantly to remind myself is both a luxury and fun, but the truth is I can’t stand hanging in limbo, LOL.

    Educating the ill-informed has to be our number one agenda. We have to try to stop voters from being duped twice. Although how they could possibly even think of voting for the Anti-American schmuck I don’t know. Yes, we must vote the freedom-hater out of office in November.

    No sweat Ma’am.

    Doing my best to protect your tri-care and our country by ridding us of Obama and Obamacare in about 18 hours on Nov. 6.
    Has the chosen one recommended that federal employees, congress and the president also go on the new government healthcare program? No, I thought not.
