I'm trying to read the headline that Drudge has which reads: Plan to Charge Wounded Heroes for Treatment... Which basically means our soldiers have to pay for their healthcare. Now I click over the link, here: The American Legion Strongly Opposed to President's Plan to Charge Wounded Heroes for Treatment The American Legion Strongly Opposed to President's Plan to Charge Wounded Heroes for Treatment Again, same interpretation. Now I read the first paragraph: WASHINGTON, March 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The leader of the nation's largest veterans organization says he is "deeply disappointed and concerned" after a meeting with President Obama today to discuss a proposal to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries. The Obama administration recently revealed a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in such cases. So in this instance, Blue Cross/Blue Shield would have to pay the medical bills. The article does not say who would pay the private health insurance company. Do soldiers have to pay a monthly premium on their own health insurance right now? If so, would this save a soldier money? If they don't have to pay health insurance, and Obama's plan is going to force them to pay health insurance, well that's a TERRIBLE idea. Why should soldiers have to pay for private health insurance when private citizens will soon be able to pay for public health insurance. This article isn't very well written and it needs more information.
