Obama wants the Military to pay for their own health care.

In case you missed this on Fox, the only station to air
it, Obama did propose that the military instruct our soldiers to
purchase their own heath insurance. I don't care what your political views are...you must read this. Another look at our president, unbelievable!!!!
Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by
comedian Jon Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to
require veterans carry private health insurance to cover the estimated
$540 million annual cost to the federal government of treatment for
injuries to military personnel received during their tours on active
The President admitted that he was puzzled by the
magnitude of the opposition to his proposal.
"Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained.
"Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have
known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of
their choice? It doesn't compute.."
"I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice
for their country," Obama continued. "I wasn't asking for blood, just
money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its
history, I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try
to help reduce the nation's deficit. I guess I underestimated the
selfishness of some of my fellow Americans."
DOES HE PAY FOR HIS OWN INSURANCE???? NO, WE DO!!!!!!
It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country
from his government." - Thomas Paine
Snopes is your friend. Obama never said those things in quotes.
There is a grain of truth in the basis for this article however. Obama did propose billing vetrans' private insurance for combat related injuries. He dropped that proposal after receiving so much flack, from veterans' groups, for such a loonie idea.
I have yet to see a bigger fool than nobama...
I agree but Carter, Pelosi and Kerry are a close 2nd. Although Pelosi is more of a danger than a fool. Kerry and Carter however are fools.

Snopes: A pro Obama lash up. Run by David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California for about 13 years. Though they have no formal background or experience in investigative research, the site is hyped by folks who want to go for the easy way and do little or no research on things. Not a good source of information, or at best a tilted source of information.
I'm not sure I get your meaning. The snopes site says those words were NOT attributed to obama. Are you saying we should ignore that site and believe obama said this?
Snopes has been a reliable debunker for years and this story is bogus. The words quoted as President Obama's are actually those of humorist John Semmens, who posted them on his site on March 21, 2009. Don't take my word- look it up!!
