The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.
The disparity in treatment between civilian and uniformed personnel is causing a backlash within the military that could undermine recruitment and retention. here
As infuriating, as despicable, as obscene as this is, it should be of little surprise. As Dem. Nancy Pelosi so gleefully retorted, “We have to pass health care before we know what’s in it” ( (a treasonous act in and of itself). There’s rarely a week that passes, that we don’t learn of some other horrendous mandate in the unconstitutional Obamacare .
Democrats don’t like our military. In the last ten years, a number of Democrats and have called them “murderers” and compared their actions with those in the Communist gulags ( video). Obama has already stated he’s cutting our military down to an unfathomably size, in his warped belief that if American is weak, our enemy will no longer be afraid of our strength? Or that’s what he wants us to believe. Typical backassward thinking of a Liberal.
Weakness invites an attack; strength holds back the enemy.
And now, the men and women who offer their very lives to protect America, are being given Obama’s middle finger. And let’s be clear – that’s precisely what he’s doing.
All to appease his Union pals; all to offer them more and more. Liberal control, Democrat donating Unions with their hands out, expecting ‘payback’ for propping up the biggest Liberal in the last Presidential election.
Obama and the Democrats are not just bad for America, their policies are always have disastrous consequences. But worse, Democrats are a danger to our safety. And I expect after Obama is through gutting our military and throwing our them on the dung heap, there won’t be many willing to sign up. That might well be part of Barack Hussein Obama’s long term plan. Defeat America first.
