I'm not much for government spending, but asking soldiers to pay with private insurance for their service related injuries would be about the last
thing I would do.
According to CNN - Obama has that plan on the table:
Apparently, the plan has been worked into the budget. There is an increase in "third-party collections" estimated in the 2010 budget proposal, under
veterans care. Veterans group say this couldn't be achieved unless Veterans Administration started billing for service-related injuries.
The article said that the issue would be DOA upon arrival at the Senate - but to even THINK about proposing this is unbelievable.
What the hell is going through his administration's heads?
