Democrats in Congress are organizing to squash a White House proposal that would require veterans to use private insurance to pay for treatment of their combat and service-related injuries.
In a letter being sent to the White House, a group of House Democrats, led by Rep. Glenn Nye (D-VA), warned that such a proposal “could harm our veterans and their families in unintended, yet very serious ways, jeopardizing their families’ health care and even negatively affecting veterans’ employment opportunities.”
If the White House allows this to move forward and the Congress cannot squash this, I am gonna be totally disappointed in this new governess. This proposal just can’t be allowed to happen to the vets that are injured.
Update: I just read in the Thursday paper that Gates says this idea has been squashed and will not have a chance to be put into law. Good sense reigns supreme.
