    Obama to Force Military Families Away From Tricare …By Tripling Their Fees.

    Everybody that's effected by this possibility needs to write there congressman and senators and tell them we gave of ourselves and didn't ask for much, except to be taken care of after we served out country.
    Here’s my letter to my Reps in Washington, followed by the news article concerning this proposed increase in Tri-Care premiums.
    Help our military
    I’m writing you this letter to request that you disapprove any upcoming legislation to increase the monthly payments to Tri-Care for the military. These people have given not only their time and effort to fulfill their duty to the United States, but most of all they have given their lives and come back with devastating medical requirements, to burden them with an increase such as this to their monthly Tri-Care is an outrage.
    The government when asking for their assistance by volunteering for military service told them that the government would look after them and take care of their medical requirements and after all’s done and said, this prospect of an increase in monthly payments is no less a slap in their faces.
    They can’t afford this increase, there lucky to just be able to get by with what they have.
    Where is the accountability for misleading the American public? To be able to be reelected, if Obama had told everybody that there Insurance policies would be canceled and there Insurance policy costs would go up, there is no way he would have been reelected and we wouldn't be going through all of this grief. Bottom line is Obama flat out lied to everybody.
    So please, remember what they have done and do not allow this a happen, because they were there when we needed them, and now they need you to be there for them.

    Obama to Force Military Families Away From Tricare …By Tripling Their Fees.
    by: Benjamin Franklin
    President Barack Obama has said on multiple occasions that he stands by the troops, and lauds their selflessness in fighting the Iraq war and the conflict in Afghanistan. During a time when our bravest in uniform have been in a state of war for more than a decade, one would think that our fearless leaders should reward their efforts by making life a bit easier at home.
    Instead, Obama simply insists on tripling their fees on the military health insurance program called Tricare.
    What is the administration’s reasoning on this? Well, they actually admit that Obama would rather the troops partake in ‘alternatives’ that were established in the Affordable Care Act (otherwise known as Obamacare). In a report from the FreeBeacon.com, Bill Gertz states:
    Administration officials told Congress that one goal of the increased fees is to force military retirees to reduce their involvement in Tricare and eventually opt out of the program in favor of alternatives established by the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.”
    This is quite a telling move by the Obama administration, due to the transparency in a letter written to congress, as the FreeBeacon.com further reports:
    The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation,” the White House wrote in an official policy statement expressing opposition to the bill, which the House approved in May.”
    So, what are these ‘fee initiatives’? The Bill Gertz goes on to say,
    Significantly, the plan calls for increases between 30 percent to 78 percent in Tricare annual premiums for the first year. After that, the plan will impose five-year increases ranging from 94 percent to 345 percent—more than 3 times current levels.
    According to congressional assessments, a retired Army colonel with a family currently paying $460 a year for health care will pay $2,048.
    The new plan hits active duty personnel by increasing co-payments for pharmaceuticals and eliminating incentives for using generic drugs.”
    Essentially, Barack Hussein Obama would rather force military families to partake in Obamacare welfare-backed programs rather than using Tricare, and he had hoped to do this by tripling their premiums in just 5 years.
    All the while, the report states that Obama leaves his true friends, the ‘unionized civilian defense workers’, unscathed by tax and premium hikes:
    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.”
    The sad part of this tale is that Barack Obama clearly has no loyalty to his country, his ‘friends’, and most certainly the troops that would carry out his commands without question for the love of their home. It is clearly only profit and power that pulls him out of bed in the morning, and lulls him to sleep at night. How so?
    We already know that upon the passage of Obamacare that the market reacted by tanking 1%, while certain public sector insurance companies, hospital firms, and pharmaceutical manufacturers significantly increased in share prices. We already know from leaked Pfizer lobbyist memos that they were going to pledge $80 billion to Obama’s reelection efforts if he were to pass the ACA. So, essentially, the fact that Obama’s action of forcing military families away from Tricare and towards these public sector insurance ‘alternatives’, shows who he really serves. …just a hint, it’s not you or anyone in the military.
    That’s correct, he serves the unionized defense contractors (as long as they serve him in return), and he serves public sector companies and Wall Street-owned major medical companies, like Pfizer (also… as long as they serve him in return).
    In the closing, Patricia Campion of Yahoo News writes these insightful words:
    As commander-in-chief, I want every veteran to know that America will always honor your service and your sacrifice — not just today, but every day,” the president said in November. “And just as you fought for us, we’re going to keep fighting for you — for more jobs, for more security, for the opportunity to keep your families strong and America competitive in the 21st century.”
    Of course, he forgot to warn them he was about to kick their existing health care insurance plan so far out of reach that they’d be forced to grab the plan that 53 percent of Americans want repealed for survival.”

    This administration has gone to hell in a hand basket. Our Congress is weak and dang near useless when listening to the American public, our Senate isnt much better. Tripling Tricare rates IS a slap in the face, then again, so is Obama care on everyday Citizens/Civilians. The Obama administration has said time and time again, they need young healthy people and frequent users to buy into Obama care plans to make it work. Well, here we have it, damn near FORCING our Armed forces to buy into an already broken system, a heavily flawed system.

    Once again, the lie that "you can keep your plan" is exposed as big, blatant, bogus bovine excrement.

    News Flash..No party affiliation cares about veterans! We need our own party!

    You cannot have a representative government that understands your issues if no one in the government has been in service to their country risking their lives! It is that simple! Obama, the Repubs, the Dems, the Tea party,etc.. all have one theme that is corporate support and ensuring their own retirement plan. They are all supported by corporate influence initiatives that are as elaborate as a warning order for a major battle. Dept reduction, yea right..right into their own back pockets. We are increasing the enrollment in the VA by 10,000 per month, into a system that is inadequate before 911 never the less afterwards.Disability codes are from the 1950's,once service personnel are finished with active military health care, IE., after initial rehab, they are dumped into the shock of their lives, the VA system. Don't believe me, look at the suicide rates after they are dumped into the VA. It takes people like us to speak up, rally up and move this country to a place that we all fought for in our military careers.

  6. So few in the country, let alone Congress have served in the military. All military healthcare is to them is a financial burden. The only way to fix it is to vote them all out!
