Yes people Obamacare is going to accomplish what no other president has done in the last 15 years, thanks to his pay off to big insurance companies he is going to give away military retirees under Humana care for big insurance to increase their premiums.

And people still think that Obamacare is going to take care of them, wake up lame ducks you just going to be handle in silver platter to corrupted insurance companies to be gouge by mandate.

He is not even sparing the ones that already have served this country, he wants insurance companies to hold every single hard working America like a slave or else the IRA gestapo is going to come and get you.


House Committee Okay's TRICARE Increase

Last week the House Armed Services Committee gave the go ahead for the Obama administration's plan to begin to raise out-of-pocket costs modestly for working-age retirees TRICARE beneficiaries. This would be the first increase in TRICARE Prime enrollment fees in more than 15 years. If approved the committee's budget bill would allow DoD to increase premiums by $30 a year for individual coverage and $60 a year for family coverage. The HAS defense budget would also allow DoD to raise the TRICARE Prime premium on an annual basis, but not at the rate they requested.


No only the increases will start immediately but the corporate whores will allow the premiums to be increased yearly.

I can not believe that I voted for Obama the corporate whore.
so now he can come around and spit on my husband a retire marine, modestly my big latino arse, modestly for the big corrupted corporate America that profit billions on hard working Americans is unrestricted, if they dare to do this to retirees wait what they will do to all those that are to have insurance by mandate.

You do know this has nothing to do with health care reform. The democrats want to get rid of the insurance companies altogether -- we had to settle, for a not as good plan.

This is the first increase in 15 years paying for a product that is increasing far far faster than inflation.

How can people give so many props to Obama for Universal Healthcare when he's doing this?
He's giving people's pensions away but is okay to force others to help finance universal healthcare?

None of this makes sense, it has zero consistency and therefore you should know that he's no leader
As they say, follow the money

Enough with the Obama defending, it's ridiculous

You do know that increasing the tricare premium was already in table during the Obamacare debate, first it was said that it will not affect tricare for retirees, now there you have it, so to say that is no linked to Obamacare is just no right.

Also Military retirees were told that health care was free for life after retirement, a promised that congress broke right after telling the military that they would, because after 65 retirees are dumped into medicare part B and still is not free, but hey Republicans wants to get rid of medicare also.

The "free" part refered to the VA. I'm now retired and my Dad (also retired Military) told me to take Tri-Care as the VA system is swamped and it takes awhile to schedule, appointments, tests..etc. I was going to anyway, but it irriatates me that the premiums have gone up to the degree they have.

My Dad would probably be dead if it weren't for Tri-Care, as he needed a multi by-pass and the VA told him he would have to wait 6-12 months and gave him statins to tied him over.. Thank God he had it when needed.

Minutes after the House passed the health care reform bill Sunday evening, Defense Sec. Robert M. Gates said the program will not "negatively impact" TRICARE, the military health system.
Gates said, "the health and well-being of America's men and women in uniform is my highest priority.
The military system already meets the minimum standards set forth in the bill, he said.

I guess when they told that it will not be "negatively impacted" means that we still going to have it but now we are just to pay more for deductibles and fees.

What a rat and what a joke, 15 years and under Obama retirees are going to be the target of insurance companies just like the rest of the population.

So Obama is basically asking retirees from the military, vets, people who have served their country, to PAY for all his union buddies who get waivers???

Hows that "hopey/changy thing working out for everyone?

It is quite obvious that you haven't the foggiest notion about how any of this works -- what a waiver is and that this huge out cry of faux outrage is 3.00 to 5.00 per month.

Dont sit there and scream about balancing the budget then blocking any taxation and complaining when balancing the budget happens. Geez. Dont make me look this up now.

Okay taking the trouble here is the membership of the committee that came up with this

armedservices.house.gov... Republican Led and Republican Majority -- Why is this laid in the laps of the Dems. ??

Scooter, I know good and well how this works. You want big goverment control and you don't care who gets hurt in the process. Bully for you! But for the rest of us, paying for a socialist state is beyond the pale.

Just what is this socialist state you keep talking about??

You run down the road screaming Socialism Socialism and waving your hands about like Chicken Little worrying about the sky falling but you cant say.

It appears to me that you are an anarchist and care nithing about who gets hurt except for your self.

These generalizations can be fun -- I don't often go there. But I love to watch the glitter of spittle in the morning. -- skippy.

yeah -- ok the was rather non sequitur -- I am asking a simple question -- what is socialism -- the answers always seem to be communism or fascism -- which is so obviously wrong it borders on willful ignorance. So what is it.

So this thread is about socialism -- I'm not seeing it at all and you are convinced that that is the case. Please show me. So far I have not seen much in the way of real facts, just screaming and shouting.

And BTW how can you say you are so knowledgeable and then make a statement that is entirely wrong, if you know the fact but state something opposite - then you must be - well something, but primarily you're wrong.
