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."
I don't care that the administration has backpedaled on this AFTER the Democrats in Congress said this was DEAD ON ARRIVAL.
This is really the part that IRKS me. You might be trying to figure some way to generate income CASUE YOUR SPENDING A SHIT LOAD OF MONEY. Some damn bean counter came up with this asinine idea to have the men and women who have SERVED and sacrificed for this country pay for their own medical insurance with injuries suffered WHILE IN COMBAT. Yeah i don't expect the egg head to know that might be a bad idea, he probably thinks Wrestling is not staged...YOU DILLWEED.
You might think though, that ELECTED officials such as Rahm Emanuel and Barrack Obama would have their radars go up on this issue. Especially after the the commander of the American legion has a meeting with you TOOLS, and you let the man leave red faced and he says this...... " he refused to hear arguments" meaning the President.
Do you actually think the press is going to look the other way on every DUMB ASS thing you people propose.
This is an embarrassment to the people of this country, and more IMPORTANTLY to the men and women who have worn this country's uniform and been injured.
This country deserves much better than these amateurs at the helm!!!
