Obama Say's 'Thanks' To Veterans By Billing Them for Injuries

Obama 'supports' our brave military and veterans by considering a plan which in effect charges them for their combat injuries.
Veterans Groups Irate at Obama's Private Insurance Proposal
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- "Veterans groups are angry after President Obama told them Monday that he is still considering a proposal to have treatment for service-connected injuries charged to veterans' private insurance plans."

"The groups oppose the idea because they believe that the government has a moral obligation to pay for service-connected injuries for the men and women who risked their lives serving the country."

"This flies in the face of the VA's covenant to cover all service-related health-care expenses," said Jay Agg, a spokesman for AMVETS.

Had enough YET?
