Skip to comments.Obama to Soldiers: Pay Up
Posted on 06/29/2012 12:02:46 PM PDT by sunmars
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 Obamas 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 administrations plan to cut nearly $500 billion from the Pentagons budget.
Some fear the administrations proposal is an effort to increase enrollment in the state-run insurance exchanges mandated under the presidents 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.

call his bluff.
Detain Eric Holder.
This reads to me that there won’t be any military vote in November. Lots of tricks are going to be played.
Yesterday, we were told HERE that Tricare was NOT going to be impacted by ObamaTAX.
Could it be that our masters (gasp) LIED to us?!?
Yet another breach of faith against people who swore to defend this country with their lives. It is shameless and outrageous!
Every trick in the book, and hundreds more that aren't. Modeled after the last Kenyan Election.
What a niggardly move against the brave folks who earn so little and give so very much to protect this country. Let’s put this SOB on the unemployment rolls in November! sd
Shut the f**k up and pay your taxes.
Tired of you little people being so uppity.
The military is going to enjoy dragging his ass off in shackles when he refuses to leave the WH upon his election loss.
LOL..by the most niggardly bastard I know.
But I thought Barack and Michelle were the military’s best buddies!
Don’t pay attention to what the Obama Administration says, pay attention to what it does.
I can’t tell you how much I look forward to Obama losing a second term and then watching Obama and Michelle leave the WH.
No more fancy vacations, Michelle! It will all be on your dime now!
I think this will irritate Obama more than we can imagine.
And take those darn teleprompters with you, Obama!! No more pause, pause, pause, turn head, turn head, turn head. gack!
I hope the next President doesn’t do this teleprompter chit!
This is also aimed at us retirees who gave their all and then were promised a lifetime of “free” on base medical care...Many TEA party activists are/were military retirees.
My Tricare is a very good deal and I’m glad for it, even though as I re-upped each time I was assured I would have free medical...
If my country needs it, I will even forgo it if it helps and they have no money, but Obama is the same clown giving out free cell phones to lazabouts and welfare ne’er do wells??? Cut that crap first.
God in Heaven, bring November soon!
November 6 can not come soon enough
I've talked to a lot of retired military and those under TRICARE - some who voted for 0 bummer, and they are so ready to hit the voting booth for Mitt.
Walgreen's no longer accepts Tricare, because they do not get reimbursed by this Administration. So, I had to move my prescriptions elsewhere.
Why would this Administration take the money from our troops and their spouses, and troop retirees and spouses? Here is one answer:
So - take it from those who have laid down their lives for our freedom, to give it to the 'entitled' and Government employees!
The Bride is ready to slit throats. She and the girls are all under Tricare Prime. Just wait until she gets a load of what’s coming for Taxmageddon.
Now watch for Obama and his minions to pull some sh*tty trick to prevent the military from voting in November.
