Clash of ideals! It appears obama's disdain for the military (huge cuts in defense spending) and his push for universal healthcare have collided. The loser? American vets of course!!! But take a second look. Is this a calculated effort to push obamacare?!
Just how big are these increases? Over five years military personell would be facing a 345 percent increase in their annual premiums and an additional annual enrollment fee on top of the monthly premium!!!
It's also worth noting, "The massive increases beginning next year appear timed to avoid upsetting military voters while courting labor unions in an election year. Government unions are the only segment of organized labor that has increased in recent years", so of course in true hypocritical obama fashion, civilian worker's benefits are left unchanged.
