Obama to Wounded Vets: "Drop Dead" 
Not much time to comment today on this one. I didn't believe it when I first heard the rumblings about it. Put this one under the "beyond stupid" column.

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.

"It became apparent during our discussion today that the President intends to move forward with this unreasonable plan," said Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion. "He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it."

The Commander, clearly angered as he emerged from the session said, "This reimbursement plan would be inconsistent with the mandate ' to care for him who shall have borne the battle' given that the United States government sent members of the armed forces into harm's way, and not private insurance companies. I say again that The American Legion does not and will not support any plan that seeks to bill a veteran for treatment of a service connected disability at the very agency that was created to treat the unique need of America's veterans!"

At least there's money for smelling pig farts, ACORN, and deadbeat houseflippers, though.

At least that's something.

What happens when Achilles shrugs?

Splash, out


ADDED: Alright! Aside from frontier defense, independence, freedom of the high seas, expansion to the Pacific ocean, emancipation, civil defense, defeating British imperialism, bringing Democracy to millions around the world including here at home, defeating the Kaiser, defeating Nazism, fascism, Japanese expansionism, a free and prosperous Korean peninsula, protecting the liberty of our trading partners in Europe from Russian domination, defeating Communism, protecting the free flow of oil at market prices, bringing down Saddam Hussein and chasing Osama Bindejo into some God-forsaken cave in Pakistangladesh, WHAT HAVE THE WOUNDED VETERANS EVER DONE FOR US????

Might this just be Obama's entering wedge to drive private insurance companies out of business, so that a government monopoly can seize control of the enormous cash flow involved in "universal" health care?

Imagine the possibilities for screwing political enemies and rewarding political friends when this avalance of billions joins the staggering looting of the public till achieved by the 'stimulus'.
