Veterans' Treatments Part of HillaryCare Strategy

Apparently the O-and-Savior wants third-party (private) insurance plans to pay for service-related disabilities and injuries.

The leader of the nation’s largest veterans organization says he is “deeply disappointed and concerned” after a meeting with President Obama today to discuss a proposal to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries. The Obama administration recently revealed a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in such cases.

For the moment, let's leave the moral issue out of it (it's clear that Obama never lets 'moral issues' bother him, anyway.)

Why is this happening?

To facilitate HillaryCare.

This is easy, folks. Third-party insurance is most often obtained through the workplace. That means that employer-insurance costs will rise when veterans enter the pool.

And THAT will increase the pressure on employers, who will be just that much more interested in offloading the plans (and costs) to another willing party.

Such as The Gummint.

I've mentioned the "squeeze play" before; this is another facet of the same game.

You heard it here first.

Actually, heard it on Mark Levin first at 5:00CDT.
But you are correct. Obama is without shame and morals. He is by far the worst president ever and I thought Carter was bad. At least Carter had some morals but Obama is amoral- he is the opposite of the messiah.

Let's see. Make employer contributions to employee health insurance taxable. Then make private insurance pay for wounded and disabled servicemembers' care. Oh wow it really can get worse.

This is sick. I don't want Obama's vision of America. Not one part of it. Certainly not his universal health care.

What Obama has proposed is going to jeopardize veterans' access to health care. There are some things because of the nature of war wounds that the government is just going to have to pay for. Treatment for veterans is the government's responsibility. Don't let Obama betray any one else any more.
