Obama to cut medical benefits for active, retired military, not union workers
http://www.examiner.com ^| February 28, 2012 | Joe Newby

In an effort to cut defense spending, the Obama Administration plans to cut health benefits for active duty and retired military personnel and their families while not touching the benefits enjoyed by unionized civilian defense workers.

The move, congressional aides suggested, is to force those individuals into Obamacare, Bill Gertz reported at the Washington Beacon.

Gertz added:

The proposed increases in health care payments by service members, which must be approved by Congress, are part of the Pentagonís $487 billion cut in spending. It seeks to save $1.8 billion from the Tricare medical system in the fiscal 2013 budget, and $12.9 billion by 2017.

Not everybody is happy with the plan, however.

Military personnel would see their annual Tricare premiums increase anywhere from 30 - 78 percent in the first year, followed by sharply increased premiums "ranging from 94 percent to 345 percentómore than 3 times current levels."

The president can't cut anything.
Maybe you wingnuts should do some research on how our government operates.

Returned from Asia end of July after staying there from the end of the V. Nahm war.
Shocked to find out, as a retired war veteren, I now have no medical benifits. I will go on Medicare by waiting one year(July) and paying $140 per month. More than others. It is now mid-March so I cannot afford to get sick for 4 months and then I don't know how to use medicare.
Was promised, when joined, medicare for life if stay in to retire.
I guess the people in D.C. would have to cut their pay without my $140.

I think your math is screwed up Floyd.
You say you stayed in Asia since the end of the Vet Nam war ? That's was 39 years ago.
If you were the last solider to join the war, you still should have retired almost 20 years ago. You should have eligible for Medicaid 10 years ago.
You say you came back home ? After 39 Years ? Why ???
I'm not sure what a TROLL is, but I bet you're one

It was the "left" wing nut, Jay Carney, that admitted it was the POTUS that cancelled the tours. He cancelled the tours and then sent the Muslim Brotherhood $2.5 Billion dollars and also sent his daughters on a big spring break vacation.
Obama always takes care of his own first.

Thanks for the laugh! I'm guessing you don't keep up with the news so much. The next thing those right wing-nuts will be believing is that the sun rises in the East! If you don't object (and even if you do) I'm going to enter your post into the Topix dumb and dumber contest.

No, FOXNEWS told you that.. You now, the ONLY news covering that story -LOL

It is the Secret Service that handles and cancels White House tours.

WillyP - same thing, FOXNEWS Idiot
