RUSH: March 17, 2009: “This next story is an absolute shocker.” I’m reading from the website. This is a transcript from this program. “This next story is an absolute shocker. Actually, it’s a two-parter and it’s all over the place. It’s McClatchy, it’s AP, the veterans groups have even put out a press release. ‘The Obama administration is considering making veterans use private insurance to pay for treatment of combat and service-related injuries.
The plan would be an about-face on what veterans believe is a long-standing pledge to pay for health care costs that result from their military service. But in a White House meeting Monday, veterans groups apparently failed to persuade President Obama to take the plan off the table.” So Ralph was right. Now his point was (summarized), “I don’t care what Obama said yesterday. I don’t believe him. I don’t believe he was mad. I don’t believe he cares and I don’t believe he wants to get to the bottom of it, because Obama wants veterans to be paying for their own health care insurance and treatment on their own,” and it turns out Ralph was right.
