Hey, I told you so....
Further proof that I’m right…
President Obama, after an uproar by veterans groups, has scrapped a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs for the treatment of troops injured in service.
"In considering the third-party billing issue, the administration was seeking to maximize the resources available for veterans," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Wednesday in a written statement. "However, the president listened to concerns raised by the [veteran service organizations] that this might, under certain circumstances, affect veterans' and their families' ability to access health care. Therefore, the president has instructed that its consideration be dropped," Gibbs said.
More like, “Oh man, we’re bankrupting the country to pay for pork and bullshit and figured we’d defray the costs by screwing over those babykillers and war-mongerers who kill our socialist allies and other repressed peoples, and we got called out on it.”
I’d like to think that the administration folded after my withering, blistering assault the other day. Remember, this blog is read by powerful people the world over searching for wisdom and guidance under my tutelage.
