OK, so the title is a little misleading. Most of you who know me know I continually bitch about Fraud & Waste in Government. However, in this particular case, I would like to show you some photos of your tax dollars doing precisely what they were meant to do. They take a minute to load, so please be patient.
Your Tax Dollars At Work]]>
I am not 100% sure if this is a direct result of the recent passage of the Health Care legislation, but it appears the Feds cut payments to MediCare and Tricare by 21%, effective back on April 1, 2010. For those of you that don’t know, Tricare is the insurance plan that covers the families of the members of our Armed Services.
The Senate is considering corrective legislation (H.R. 4851) so our military families don’t lose this much needed coverage, but it is apparently being delayed over technical budget details. Please visit the military.com legislative center where you can complete an on-line letter to your members of Congress urging them pass this important legislation. It might take you all of 5 minutes to help out our military personnel and their families.
