  • Veterans...Under Obama healthcare plan, TRICARE changes drastically!

    Here’s another part of the Obama health care plan they aren’t telling you.

    To those veterans who are receiving TRICARE, or will be receiving TRICARE in the future, this plan will be changing drastically under the Obama health care plan. Costs will be going up BIG TIME (higher co-pays, higher deductibles, etc). So much so that the changes encourage the veterans to get into a private medical plan. But private plans will be going away and veterans will be under the same plan as everyone else.

    Please read the proposed health care plan prepared by the Congressional Budget Office, options 95 thru 98 (pages 173-178).

    Please contact your congressmen and senators (and everyone else you know) IMMEDIATELY and tell them that this health care plan is totally unacceptable.

      I would also encourage everyone to call your senators and representatives. Most changes made by an administration can be flipped at some point in the future. Once we switch the system over to socialized medicine there is no going back.

      Please don't read this as taking sides politically (against the rules). This is a big issue that regardless of which side you are on you need to think through this and make your opinion known and not just sit back and let it slide through.

          I am not taking any political side. I was informed about this from a military friend and just want everyone to know what the proposed plan has in store for retired veteran's medical care.

          Please contact your senators and congressmen and tell them about this part of the plan. Believe me, they will not know about this part of the plan. They have not read the plan, but they're going to vote on it.

          Yep, we have the best politicians money can buy.

            There is a clause that says members of congress are exempt from their own bill. You know that can't be good for any body.

              I'm curious how some of you feel about the proposal to help pay for UHC by taxing everyone except for Union members on their current health care benefits. The reasoning behind the exclusion makes no sense at all.

                What's wrong with taking political sides? If you have an side, that's you prerogative. Who said we have to hide our thoughts, or all agree? I thought we were just going to remain respectful and avoid politically charged discussions that could get out of hand?

                  I still think that completely removing all health care benefits from public occupations will go a long way to making people care and have enough interest to come up with the best system with...ugh...some oversight.

                  Zero public health benefits. All private. I think part of the "problem" is that publicly employed have benefits that are supported by those that are not eligible for those same benefits.

                      I still remember doctors making housecalls, and you paid when you went to the office. HMO's and all the other middlemen have created an industry that produces nothing but paper and heartache. Make it simple again, pay the people who provide the service. Provide basic healthcare for those who truly can't afford it, but make sure they are not abusing the system some other way. Oh, and escort the illegals to the border and stop paying millions to give them healthcare, education, and everything else they don't kick into.

                          Before I get all spun up, I want to read pg 173-178 for myself. If this is the case then I might just go to congress with my own ideas how to lower the deficit.

                              obama was going to tax the union members. But they found out about it, complained, stated that they were responsible for obama's victory and obama decided to exclude them. Pure corruption, nothing more. What else can we expect from the obama syndicate?
