In order to cut spending, Obama wants to cut medical benefits to active military, dependents and retirees while not touching the benefits of civilian contractors. These guys (and gals) make boo-choo money, unlike our military which is vastly underpaid for the work they do.In the upcoming next year, the cost of Tricare could rise by 78% and continue to rise to possibly over 300% in the following years. On top of that, there will be an annual fee for Tricare for life. This burns my arse because promises where made to my dad for the service he did for this country. Promises that have been consistently reneged on in favor of politician's pet projects. Because of exposure to Agent Orange, he suffers from multiple illness which the VA has declared him to be 90% disabled. Wheelchair bound and declining health wasn't enough of a price to service this country, now they want more. I am disgusted.

I understand your frustration, my husband is also "tricare for life" and we were informed he has "aged out" so is no longer eligible for any medical care from the military or the VA (BTW he has 85% service related disabilities) they are however still taking our money on a regular basis for the payment of our regular "tricare for life" premuims. I've taken the matter to several people at Ft Stewart and not received any satisfactory answers plus raised the issue with Jack Kingston's office.

Pretty much standing in a corner tapping my foot impatiently as I watch my husband's health detoriate rapidly...

Your criticism of my link Murr, is the reason I posted those other links, which talk about the cuts to Tricare proposed by Obama.
