The head of the American Legion met with President Obama today regarding the administration’s desire to charge private insurance (and thus those who pay for the insurance) for service related injuries:
"It became apparent during our discussion today that the President intends to move forward with this unreasonable plan," said Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion. "He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it."
That this is where he draws the line. That Barack Obama won’t just “print” another 1/2 billion to honor our obligations to our veterans shows you that he places them below ACORN, UAW, and any other number of Democratic constituencies services in the “stimulus” bill that doesn’t stimulate. I know I’d much rather honor our obligations to our veterans than any of the 8,000+ ear marks in the Omnibus budget, or any of the salamanders in San Francisco “saved” by the stimulus bill.
This is appalling. Impeach him.
