    In a last minute suprise 48 hours before ObamaCare is passed it is revealed that language to include TRICARE that Current Military Members & Veterans desperately depend on for health coverage for them and their family was left out. Senator Ike Skelton (Chairman House Arms Services Commitee) was disclosed the Information last night at the last minute and will enter legislation today that will try to get language included in the bill. This is treasonist to leave out coverage for our Military and the Veterans who served this country in Combat. Leaving TriCare out ( Which Obama Seems to Want ) would force them to pay for the insurance theirselves which would be high dollar and out of their pocket books range. Lets pray and hope he can get the job done to make sure our men and women and all veterans are covered in this unconstitutional final bill if passed. This is a clear violation of the Presidential Oath of Office Obama swore too on Jan 20th of 2009. Get this info out to everyone before it is to late.

    Skelton to Introduce Legislation to Protect TRICARE

    Washington, D.C.—Today, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) released the statement below regarding his intent to introduce legislation to explicitly state in law that TRICARE and the DOD nonappropriated fund (NAF) health plans meet all of the health care requirements currently under consideration by Congress for individual health insurance. These programs provide health coverage to members of the military and their families, military retirees and their families, and employees of U.S. military post/base exchanges and other nonappropriated fund activities.

    “Our nation’s military provides us with first-class protection, and it is our obligation to provide them—and their families—with first-class health care in return. While some of this Committee’s members may disagree on overall health care reform, we are united in our commitment to ensuring that any measure signed into law will not have any unintended consequences that adversely impact the military health care programs for our men and women in uniform and their families.
    “Although the health care legislation passed by the House explicitly exempted TRICARE from being affected, the Senate bill did not. Unfortunately, the parliamentary rules of the reconciliation process did not allow for the inclusion of language that specifically protects these programs.

    This isn't true, but thank you for admitting that government run health care insurance works well.

    Please change your screen name, you are a disgrace to the Army.
