Support the Troops, Bushie 0
(Aside: I thought the days of recycling that headline were gone)
The Republicans are taking troops’ and troops’ families’ health care home with them and not playing any more because they don’t like how the last inning of the game turned out.
Remember, my son is a troop.
They are holding him and his compatriots hostage to their temper tantrum.
I shall shut up now. Because if I let loose, I will not be able to stop.
From Senator Webb’s press release:
Despite progress late in the week, Republican procedural delays have stalled a motion by Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) to provide immediate fixes to two areas of the law that would clarify and protect coverage for millions of veterans and recipients of TRICARE.
Senator Webb’s legislation, the TRICARE Affirmation Act, has garnered 65 cosponsors, including every Democratic senator and six Republican senators. The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) this week also sent out strong letters of endorsement, urging a vote on the bill this week.
