We're retired military and our copayments are the same they've been for years. The Republicans sent our people to two unfunded wars and now they are complaining about the cost of military healthcare.

Then they play politics with the debt they incurred and threaten to put the country into default. Threatening to put the country into default directly contributed to lowering the credit rating for the country. Vote for them? Get real. Posted by: Noz | August 25, 2012, 1:37 pm 1:37 pm

Make that at least four lies from Ryan in his first week, 1) he condemned “Obama’s” cuts to the military (while he voted for the approach that makes those cuts), 2) he said he didn’t lobby for or receive Stimulus funds for his constituency (false), 3) he condemned Obama for cutting Medicare (when his own budget made the same cuts) , 4) he blamed the closing of a Wisconsin GM plant on Obama – when it actually closed under Bush before Obama was elected. *Ryan established himself as an untrustworthy, two-faced liar in less than a week.

The Teenagers (Liberals) in the House caused the country’s debt rating to be downgraded for the first time in history by not being responsible enough to implement substantial necessary spending cuts.. Get a clue. Posted by: One Limp Nozzle | August 25, 2012, 1:37 pm The Teabaggers in the House caused the country’s debt rating to be downgraded for the first time in history because they take their oath to the never-elected 56-year-old virgin Grover Norquist over their oath to the people of the United States.

Don’t believe us still? Look it up on Google..... Posted by: wawhite74 | August 25, 2012, 1:17 pm. I've done that. Numerous times. I am 100% correct here. Regardless of the outcome of this lawsuit in Ohio, military personnel there will still be able to early vote up until the day before the election. That will not change at all. Period. Anyone who claims otherwise is lying.

According to military dot com, in their 'benefits' section: "DoD plans to ask Congress to enact a law to permanently peg the rate of increase for TRICARE Prime premiums to the National Healthcare Expenditure (NHE) Index. This increase targets military retirees under age 65. A DoD official told the press that the decision to use the NHE Index was made because it was transparent, easy to understand, and “fair.” But, the NHE Index was 3.1 percent in 2009; and over the past 25 years, the average annual increase has been 6.4 percent." ------ Not sure where you got your "up to 200% in some cases" increase from. Also, the previous poster said that the president told the military "you have to pay for your own medical care", which I do not believe for one second. wawhite74 | August 25, 2012, 1:17 pm post ———- First of all, thank you for your service.
