Genoese Democrats

One of the lowest circles of Dante's hell is reserved for corrupt traitors to country and family; the kind of politicians who would eat their own children for a slight advantage.
Ah Genoese! men perverse in every way,
With every foulness stain’d, why from the earth
Are ye not cancel’d? Such an one of yours
I with Romagna’s darkest spirit found,
As for his doings even now in soul
Is in Cocytus plung’d, and yet doth seem
In body still alive upon the earth.
Their souls already are in torment while, like zombies, their bodies still stalk the earth. That would include Joe Lieberman (former D-CN) and Evan Bayh (D-IN).

This is true. It is on pages 77, 172, 218, and 434. You have to dig to see the

charges. We (retirees) would lose the Medicare for life benefit and would have

to pay. We would lose TRICARE as a total care package. We would not be allowed

to keep TRICARE so when Obama stands and says if you like what you have you can

keep it, he lies.

This is a "Heads Up" on a battle we are facing now and down the road

with the new Administration. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has already

drafted proposed legislation that would basically reduce our TRICARE for Life

benefits to a system whereby we pay deductibles and co-pays up to $6,301 the

first year for you and your spouse, with future years being indexed to increase

with inflation. What can we do? The article below, obtained from an Air

Force Association and written by BG Bob Clements, best describes what we can

do. Please read it and check the links for CBO language and do what Bob

says-Send this email to every Military Retiree you know and write and email

your Congressman often. For those of you that might have voted for

"Change", you should do it more than often!

TRICARE FOR LIFE'S FUTURE . . TRICARE For Life was instituted to correct

the broken promise that military retirees would receive free healthcare

coverage for life and it covers the Medicare co-pay. Now a heavy assault has

begun on Veterans'/Retirees' benefits to pay for other programs our President

promised during the campaign. And it is a high priority of his administration.

The one item of most interest to Retired Military is in Article 189. If

approved by Congress the first assault wave would hit in 11 and would hit hard.

It would initiate cost sharing to require retirees to pay the first $525 of

medical cost and 50% of the next $4,725 for a first year cost of $2,888 per

person. It would be indexed to increase with inflation. A reason given

for this action (for PR effect) is "overuse" by Retirees.

For those of you who are covered by TFL you will want to pay attention (Below)

to what BG Bob Clements has surfaced about the future of TFL. In any case, on

page 189 of the Congressional Budget Office report, see the note below on how

to get to that spot, there is a strong recommendation to eventually eliminate

the program as it is too expensive. Just another move to slight those of us who

dedicated much of our adult lives to the defense of our country.

Strongly recommend that you contact your elected officials and register your

strong opposition to the elimination of the TFL program. Heads-up from BG Bob

Clements, USAF Ret (P38 Bob)
