as I said, when you criticize military for something that is real - look what happens
no offense meant, but living in a military town, that's just the way I see it

around here most stores have signs proclaiming military discounts
my business gats calls asking if we give military discounts, when we say no, they hang up - and often say something nasty

and please tell me why most vets are against others trying to create some sort of reasonable health care system for anyone but them


you'd have to ask most vets, I guess.  I am a vet and I am not against such. 

But I do see where you're coming from.  I was watching TV one day when a big, beefy, red-faced guy wearing a "Retired US Marine" ball cap was bedamning "government"  run healthcare and that's all he's ever had.  From the military directly when he was active,  through Tricare as primary until he got on Medicare, and then Medicare as primary with Tricare as secondary when he finally  got on Medicare. 

He was doing it in the context of Obamacare, which is only a requirement to pay a tax if one does not  have minimum coverage health insurance.  Not "government" run healthcare. 

Tricare and Medicare, on the other hand, are government payers of healthcare obtained the same place others obtain it - the US healthcare system.  Also not "government" run healthcare. 

The military and VA health system DO constitute "government" run healthcare, but it seemed to be good enough for him when he was on active duty.  And I run up on people at the local VA hospital all the time who say they hate the idea of Obamacare because "the gubmint ort not to be in the health care bidness" but yet there they are, waiting on just that.

I'll stop shy of saying they're all stupid, but if ignorance is bliss, they ought to all be the happiest people on this planet.

Yes.  But aren't we all?  Just to varying degrees.

Let me chime on this Obamacare part of it.  Your's truly officially went on the dole last year.  That is, my gubment pension started rolling in.  Thank you.  One of the perks is I picked up Tricare again at no cost to myself.  Tricare qualifies as real full family healthcare so if you have Tricare, you do NOT get penalized for not having the medical coverage that Obamacare requires.  Ask me how know.  Now why a retired Vet would bad mouth Obamacare escapes me.

AND... Even if you are NOT a retired Vet, just a Vet, VA care also qualifies as valid healthcare and avoids the Obamacare penalty.  Ask me how I know.

Greg
