    Trashing Tricare
    Obama to cut healthcare benefits for active duty and retired US military


    BY: Bill Gertz - February 27, 2012 3:36 pm

    The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges

    Administration officials told Congress that one goal of the increased fees is to force military retirees to reduce their involvement in Tricare and eventually opt out of the program in favor of alternatives established by the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.

    One of the biggest selling points for a GI to re-up is the medical care for his family.

    Make sure all your military friends remember this in November.
