Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon Stewart,
led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require veterans’
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.

sorry, guys...not true

You must be logged in to see this link.

he didn't say it, and it's not what he proposed. I know it's easy to believe outrageous stuff about people we don't like already, but let's at least dislike them for what they really did
