Obama's Private Insurance Proposal for MilitaryThe following has been checked out through http://www.snopes.com/ and also http://www.ask.com/, the story appeared in the Washington Times. Chew on this for a while..
THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS
STATEMENT EVER MADE BY A PUBLIC OFFICIAL,
LET ALONE BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
AND THIS GUY IS OUR "COMMANDER IN CHIEF". HE IS
AN UNBELIEVABLE PRESIDENT!
HERE IS HIS RESPONSE WHEN HE BACKED OFF FROM HIS DECISION
TO REQUIRE THE MILITARY PAY FOR THEIR WAR INJURIES.
WHAT AN EMPTY HEADED PERSON HE MUST BE....
Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon
Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require
veterans carry private health insurance to cover the estimated $540
million annual cost to the federal government of treatment for injuries
to military personnel received during their tours on active duty. The
President admitted that he was puzzled by the magnitude of the
opposition to his proposal.
"Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained. "Nobody
made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks.
Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It
doesn't compute.." "I thought these were people who were proud to
sacrifice for their country, "Obama continued. "I wasn't asking for
blood, just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its
history, I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help
reduce the nation's deficit. I guess I underestimated the
selfishness of some of my fellow Americans."
Please pass this on to everyone, including every vet and their
families whom you know.. How in the world did a person with this mindset
become our leader? I didn't vote for him!
REMEMBER THIS STATEMENT... "Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice?"
If this jerk thinks he will ever get another vote from anyone who is or has been
associated with the military service he's nuts.. If you or a family memberis serving or has served their country, please send this to them.
I'm guessing that everyone, other than the 20-25 percent hardcore liberals in the
US, will agree that this is another example of why Obama is the worst
president in American history. Remind everyone over-and-over how this
man thinks, while he bows to the Saudi Arabian king.
