How Unamerican can you get.........
HERE is Obama's RESPONSE WHEN HE BACKED OFF FROM HIS DECISION TO LET THE MILITARY PAY FOR THEIR WAR INJURIES........
Bad press, including a 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 duty.
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."
I guess OBAMA just doesn't get that the American people love and appreciate our military guys and gals who lay their lives on the line so we can lay our heads down at night in peace.
That's because he is not an AMERICAN at heart. That much is obvious. Why in the world people voted for him I'll never know, but we all will surely pay the price and
rue the day that he took office. America is getting change but not the change they were looking to get.
It's a shame but the people have been had again.

Note from Lucy: Sorry folks, I just had to post this. I wonder if Obama pays for his own health insurance? Does the congress? Those young men and women who "Volunteer" to help keep our country safe, are not paid much of a salary.... The least we can do is pay for their health insurance and war injuries... For me it is an honor to have these people save guard our country so that we can live in a land free from harm. I gladly give my tax dollars for their health insurance and war injuries. Where does Obama get off calling our troops selfish? Ahhhh, don't get me started!! Thanks, Steve Sanders for sending me this.
