If you are a member of the military, you must make sacrifices. You can be deployed away from family and friends for extended periods of time. You do things that have you run the risk of being seriously injured and possibly going into combat and being killed.
We do not pay our military members nearly enough. However the Obama Regime wants to send the military a message about its priorities.
What is the message and what does it mean for the military?
Obama, who allegedly wants free health care for everyone, wants military members to pay more for their healthcare. In fact, he is threatening to veto the Defense Appropriations bill unless Congress forces military members to pay more for their own healthcare.
That’s right. Obama does not want our military to have the best weapons or for that matter weapons at all. Obama does not want America to have a military. He wants America to be a weak, defenseless nation.
Most of our military gear dates from the Reagan military build up. That was thirty years ago. The USS Enterprise is on its final deployment. It was launched when Dwight Eisenhower was still president.
Our military budget desperately needs to be increased. Yet what does the Obama Regime want to spend money on?
Solyndra got money from the Obama Regime and we see how that played out. The military could have used that money and put it to better use.
Yesterday we found out that yet another stimulus backed green energy company is going bankrupt. It has been granted a $400 million dollar loan but had only used about $70 million of the loan from the government. Solyndra went belly up in 2011. Then Beacon Power died, followed by Ener1.
Does anyone possibly think that the millions that were lost in these stupid ventures might have had a better use in providing good healthcare for our military members and their families?
Given the Obama Regime’s track record of being wrong, they should not be allowed to pay for ice cream in a hot day, much less have the authority to spend any real amount of money.
Meanwhile, Obama continues to show his contempt for the men and women who serve America. Last year, he threatened to veto the Defense Authorization bill because it had a provision that awarded the Purple Heart to the military members wounded or killed by Islamist Hassan Nidal at Fort Hood.
The simple truth is Obama hates everything about America and wants to see us fail.
We need to make sure we see him fail in November.
