During my Army Days I was assigned to work on crowd control and security for the elections in Haiti in 1994-95, now that I see whats happening here, I see that Haiti has had more free, fair, and honest elections than the U.S.
No, Mr. President, it's not your race... its your hypocrisy. On one hand you tell people that you support veterans and in some small ways you make token actions in that direction. But then, based on your own desires, and not the needs of others, you surreptitiously pull the rug out and dump people when they cease being useful. I am a veteran, and you have made many public statements about your support of veterans and even a few political gestures, but the gestures you make are based on what YOU think is expeditious, nothing more. As a veteran, I signed up to serve the country and accepted many promises from the government when I did so. Then you come along and have tried to renege on many of the promises... and essentially commit a "Bait and Switch" tactic. An example of this is your call, which was thankfully beaten back by Congress, for a change in the VA medical system. The original promise was "serve a full career and receive free health care for life", your attempt to destroy that was your proposal that the VA and military healthcare system be converted to private insurance paid for by the soldier. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/03/17/veterans-groups-blast-obama-plan-private-insurance-pay-service-related-health/ Other attacks on veterans can be seen in your pleadings over the debt ceiling, when it looked like Congress was not going to extend the debt ceiling you made several public statements about the possible effects of not extending the debt, and at the top of your list was the idea that you could not guarantee payments to veterans and Social Security retirees without the debt being raised, but there was no mention of cutting off foreign aid, welfare, congressional salaries, research grants for shrimp running n treadmills, research into Vietnamese prostitutes drinking habits or other inane government spending. Only veterans and social security were on your chopping block. So, no Mr. President is is not that I don't like your color, it is that you cannot, as shown by your own actions, be trusted.
How much did your deductible go up? How much of your cheaper insurance premium is paid by subsidy? What will you do when your subsidy gets revoked?
Gillibrand is delusional, I have been watching Obama since he started running the first time, and I have never trusted him, based on his radical ideal and his total lack of experience. Gillibrand says that Obama can regain the trust of the people, but the reality is that she contradicts herself, by citing the small minority of people that Obama care will help, and totally ignoring the majority. People like myself who are harmed by Obama care. The only thing Obama can do to give the appearance of gaining ground, is to run the country even deeper into debt using tax revenue to buy voters for Dems, through more government handouts, Just as he did to get re elected. As for Confidence in Obama from the people??? How can he regain something he never had?
