Vet’s to pay for their injury treatment

March 17th, 2009 | No Comments | Posted in B Hussein, Cowards

Yea, that’s right.  To those who said “Oh gee, Obama doen’t really mean it…” well he sure as fuck does. He plans to make our vets pay for their medical treatment out of their private insurance.

The leader of the nation’s largest veterans organization says he is “deeply disappointed and concerned” after a meeting with President Obama today to discuss a proposal to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries. The Obama administration recently revealed a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in such cases.

“It became apparent during our discussion today that the President intends to move forward with this unreasonable plan,” said Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion. “He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it.”

Not an “idea”, not a “maybe”, he’s said he is going to do it and he told the veteran organizations who tried to talk him out of it to essentially fuck off.

Why? Because it will save money in his budget.  You know, the 1 TRILLION  dollar pile of steaming crap that does nothing but shove more big government down out throats.

We have BILLIONS to give to companies that don’t deserve to be bailed out but “are to important to fail” but our government can’t find $540 million to treat the bravest and the best of us with.  And, if you don’t think our Soldiers, Sailors,  Marines and Airmen deserve to be taken care of by the government that sent them into harms way then I have no use for you.  Even the worst communist country takes care of it’s soldiers, and yet ours will be told to get private insurance and “Good Luck”

When you are in the military you are considered property of the US government.  That means that you don’t have insurance because the government is taking care of you.  So, once you get out and are a civilian, anything that you get out with (damage wise) is considered a pre-existing condition that the VA takes care of and private insurance won’t touch.

By forcing these veterans to go into the private insurance route it means that, if the private insurance is force to take them (which we will assume they will) that first, the vet will be paying astronomical premiums, plus the deductibles that will be wiped out in the first six months for some guys.  This also means that insurance, which is already expensive, will be forced even higher as insurance companies have to raise premiums all over to cover the kind of treatment that our vets will require.

Let’s also not forget that some companies will hesitate to hire injured vets because it will cause their insurance prices to skyrocket if the company now has to pick up the governments tab for treating these guys.

Some will say “Gee, that doesn’t make sense.  He want’s universal coverage and then kicks the military into private insurance”.  But it does make sense.  Obama doesn’t want a strong military, he wants it weak so by doing this men and women who were thinking of joining will probably reconsider and those who are in will get out.  It has the added effect of driving insurance higher which plays into his universal health care BS by saying “Gee, look how bad insurance costs are.  I can fix it for you” while ignoring the fact that he helped cause it to begin with.

It’s like when Hitler had his brownshirts running around Germany causing problems and he told the Germans ‘If you elect me, I will put an end to all of this’ – Yea, easy to do when you are causing the problems to begin with.

I have an idea for Teh One – how bout you get rid of those 9,000 or so earmarks in the budget that were thrown in from all over the place, I bet you can find $540 million in there somewhere.  Or maybe you can take some of that $4.5 BILLION you gave to ACORN as part of the “stimulus” and use that to take care of our troop – but I guess community organizing is more important that our nations obligations to it’s defenders.

Maybe you can take it out of the $900 Million you’re giving to a bunch of fucking terrorists in Palestine, Hell you can treat the troops and STILL have $360 Million to give to those pieces of crap.  They will still shout “Death to America” no matter how much money they get so who cares.



And what’s Obama doing now, after saying he is going to assfuck out troops and not even give a reach around?

He’s partying it up at the White House.  Rome is burning and Nero is holding the matches AND throwing fuel on the fire.
