My son in law got an update to the post I shared the other day. Following is the latest news he recieved on this subject. It shows how a group of Americans can make a difference when they stand their ground on rediculous laws.
“Obama Drops Controversial Health Care Plan for Wounded Veterans:
President Obama will not advance a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs for the treatment of troops injured in service.
President Obama, after an uproar by veterans groups, has scrapped a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs for the treatment of troops injured in service.
…the American Legion, the nation’s largest veterans group, said the president’s plan would have increased premiums, made insurance unaffordable for veterans and imposed a massive hardship on military families. It could have also prevented small businesses from hiring veterans who have large health care needs, the group said.
The American Legion applauded Obama’s decision to drop the plan on Wednesday.”
God bless our veterans – they deserve this decision!
