    George Bush Screwing the Military Retiree

    If you think this is a liberals comment against the President, IT ISN'T.

    As a military retiree, I feel it is appalling how George Bush is screwing Veterans. He now wants to triple the healthcare cost of military retirees, and this is after not supporting providing disability payments to them. A military retiree with disabilities DOES NOT receive any compensation for their injuries or illnesses. The government takes it out of their retirement. Any other federal worker gets their disability payments in addition to their retirement pay. I guess the Bush feels the military does less and is less important than the 9-5 federal civil service workers. With the minimal retirement they give to the military retiree, now they want them to pay a great deal more for their healthcare. I remember when healthcare for military retirees and their families was taken care of by the government. My how things have changed. Not much our soldiers in the War On Terrorism can look forward to. By the way, now they have to pay for their college education. Other than being patriotic, I don't see any other benefit joining the military now days.

    Melvin, welcome to ALIPAC.

    I saw this on another forum a few days ago, and it truly is outrageous.

    But what can you expect?

    The man is insane and needs to be impeached and removed from office immediately.

    And I'm a 4th generation Republican who voted for the SOB TWICE.

    Melvin,

    Has something new happened?

    Personally, I feel that Bill Clinton was the one that screwed up the military health care for the retirees.

    A prime example of the arrested development common in people who use drugs and become alcoholics.


    And, welcome Melvin, good to have you aboard.

    They are changing the insurance coverage for Veterans that is going to cost veterans more in premiums. The article was posted on the N&O Forum in Raleigh...premiums could cost 3 times as much as veterans are now paying. They are cutting the government's share of veterans health insurance in order to free up funds to replenish equipment worn out or destroyed in Iraq.

    The Big Bush Super Power doesn't have enough money to take care of its soldiers and its equipment.

    What a joke this Administration has made of the United States.

    New equipment or veterans health care...eenie meenie miny mo.

    How pathetic is that?

    Insufficient tax revenue to cover all options, since illegal aliens don't pay taxes and neither do the corrupt employers who hire them

    It's all part of the "grand bureaucracy". Yes, Veterans are getting screwed. And if the vets don't help they turn to SS disability and often wait years for approval. Go to this site and check some of the comments by veterans, it will make you ill! BUT, if you are an illegal alien, you'll get SSI, no problemo!

    Here's a couple examples.

    5062. Michael Coursen MI 48746 I was denied even though I am a 100\% service connected disabled Veteran! The thanks I get for serving my country.

    MelvinPainter, this country's veterans are on my list of top priorities as it applies to who our government should be caring about. I find it disgraceful that the president had the gall to so conveniently "forget" them when he submitted the new budget. It makes me sick to think that he actually doesn't even care about the people he sent to fight for his wayward cause and who have done so admirably.

    You are right. There is absolutely no reason for anyone to join the military these days. Yet they have the audacity to keep trying to spirit our young out of the colleges and schools.
