    (Note: With minor exceptions, Snopes.com confirms the below as esentially true. See http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/veteranshealth.asp)







    THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS STATEMENT EVER MADE BY A PUBLIC OFFICIAL LET ALONE BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. AND THIS GUY IS OUR "COMMANDER IN CHIEF". HE IS A DISGRACE.

    UNBELIEVABLE PRESIDENT???

    HERE IS HIS RESPONSE WHEN HE BACKED OFF FROM HIS DECISION TO LET

    THE MILITARY PAY FOR THEIR WAR INJURIES.




    Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon

    Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require

    veterans carry private health insurance to cover the estimated $540

    million annual cost to the federal government of treatment for injuries

    to military personnel received during their tours on active duty. The

    President admitted that he was puzzled by the magnitude of the

    opposition to his proposal.



    "Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained. "Nobody

    made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the

    risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It

    doesn't compute.." "I thought these were people who were proud to

    sacrifice for their country, "Obama continued. "I wasn't asking for

    blood, just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in

    its history, I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to

    try to help reduce the nation's deficit. I guess I underestimated the

    selfishness of some of my fellow Americans."



    Please pass this on to every one including every vet and their

    families whom you know.



    How in the world did a person with this mindset become our

    leader?


    REMEMBER THIS STATEMENT... "Nobody made these guys go to war. They had

    to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the

    costs of their choice?



    If he thinks he will ever get another vote from an Active Duty,

    Reserve, National Guard service member or veteran of a military service

    he ought to think it over. If you or a family member is or has served

    their country please pass this to them. Please pass this to everyone.

    I'm guessing that other than the 20-25 percent hardcore liberals in the

    US will agree that this is just another example why this is the worst

    president in American history. Remind everyone over and over how this

    man thinks, while he bows to the Saudi Arabian king.

    I seriously doubt hussein said it. If he did, the impeachment process should start immediately!

    I dislike Bam Bam as much as anybody and more than most but what actions taken in the above statement cross the line and justify impeachment? You can't impeach for being stupid

    Who knows what the great one actually said. Sure sounds like he is talking out both sides of his wazzu. Lets see, soldiers have to cover their own medical expenses but we are going to have the new wonderful universal health care for everyone else?

    The words are not Obama's but Jon Stewart's. The idea was real and smelly.

    The concept is hideous, trying to foist off war injury costs to private insurance. If I'm not mistaken, most policies have acts of war excluded.

    You might have to search youtube to get the exact words of Obama on this matter.

    Tell this one to your liberal friends.
