This thread right here shows one of the major things wrong with America. I just get so sickof it. You all show outrage but you are outraged about the wrong thing. Obama does not desire to take away anything from the American veteran. He is just trying to get the private insurance companies, which the soldier obviously paid into, to take on some of the costs. I personally don't even agree. The insurers shouldonly pick up costs of treatment sthat aren't due to service.
Quit turning things to fit your needs, If you argue against this it should be an argument against making insurance companies pay for veterans treatment. There is absolutely nothing in this proposal or article which says the vets will have to pay or that they won't recieve the promised care. You all created that angle.
Quit denying denying ignorance.
A moderators voice confirming the content of articles such as these these would go a long way towards stopping these false conversations.
There is no intellectual honesty here. I'm bailing as soon as I fire this off to you and not returning, but I will bet you a Ruth Criss steak that you aren't going to get the hard core Rush fans here to admit the truth about who Obama expects to pay for wounded vets.

my friend, distgustedwithhumanity,
This isn't a thread for you or I. These posters are just killing time waiting to be the next caller to say "ditto" to Rush.

One side of their mouth wants...demands...smaller governmnet...and the other side wants the government to pay for things they support. Your first post was spot on. Private insurers should pony up for our troops. Get the government out of health care....hey! isn't that what the dittoheads want too? government shouldn't be in the business of providing health care. The government should make sure that the private sector don't neglect our troops because of course we know that those bastards don't want to pay for anything let alone some expensive rehabilitation for so many people...sure make the government do it! I bet insurance lobbyist are more pissed than the Vets commander or whoever the uninformed guy was. They don't want to pay for all these wounded American's. They don't want to pay for hurricane victims either...
Do you people understand that insurance companies want to make money not spend it so they want the government to take the hit on money losers! I hate that fat boy that has turned so many people's brains into mush....he is turning you into thinking like al quaeda.
I also need to point out that under Obama's health care plan, the family maximums and higher premiums for claims wouldn't exist either.
I'm pretty sick and tired of the biased coverage

Obama does not want the vets to pay. That is a pure misstatement. What Obama wants is if they also have private insurance that the insurance pays. This by no means says that Obama wants veterens to pay for their own care. Doesn'tmatter to me as i will even pay it in taxes or in insurance premiums. Either way we pay and both ways the vets get their treatment. Health insurance industry should be pissed but i don't care because they have ripped us off forever.
Anothe rpoint is that tehs evets will probably get better care in the private system anyways. Which by the way is the way Obama wants to keep it. He just wants the risk spread over allcitizens as a group which will lower premiums.
The OP should change his title and clatify that it is insuranc companies and not the veterans that have to pay.

If I were Obama....I wouldn't piss off war veterans.
If there is ANYONE out there that should have their medical costs paid for by taxpayers...it's OUR VETERANS!!

I barely understand my own, ever evolving insurance coverage.
I do know, that with each "redesign" I get a little less coverage, for a little more money.
I'm having trouble finding any further information, other than repeats of the same press release the OP has referenced.
I do have a general stance on Veteran Health care though.
That it should be A-1 coverage. That if there were three guys in line to see a Doctor, with the same injury. the Vet gets moved to the front of the line.
That just like boots and a uniform, it should be part of the military package.
That no Vet should ever be bankrupted due to medical bills. Nor should they have to play "paperwork wars" for rejected claims.
My suspicion, with limited information, is that the administration will end up using this as an underhanded way to expose the weaknesses of the private system, providing a bigger launching pad for Social Health care.
Rather than better regulations of the private system, the Government will take it over, for the "good" of the country.
