and the machine continues

The latest victims of ObamaCare are our men and women in uniform, both active military and retired.
They will be forced to leave Tricare, the military’s current health care plan, and join ObamaCare’s state-run health care exchanges. How? By increasing Tricare premiums between 30 to 78 percent the first year and a whopping 94 to 345 percent every five years after that.

Not only is this not fair to military personnel who have risked their lives to defend America, the Pentagon is worried that this will impact efforts to recruit and maintain a high-quality military force, putting our country’s security in jeopardy, too.
However, none of this will take place until after the 2012 elections.
