When I saw this story on the Washington Free Beacon, I couldn’t believe it but it looks like Obama is upset that the military isn’t paying enough fees for their healthcare.
TRICARE Fees and Co-Payments. The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation. The Administration asks the House to reconsider the TRICARE fee proposals, which are essential for DOD to successfully address rising personnel costs. The $1.8 billion in savings are part of a carefully balanced FY 2013 Budget request.
There are no group of people more patriotic than our servicemembers who fight and die for this country. Maybe they do need to pay a little bit more to balance the budget but not until AFTER we cut welfare, food stamps, bailouts, stimulus, inflated teacher salary, public unions, etc etc…
For Obama to be so disappointed in our US troops is disgusting to say the least.
