White House backs overhaul of military retirement, health coverage

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama announced Monday he will back sweeping overhauls to the military retirement and health care systems as a way to ensure the costly benefits survive into the future.

The panel has advised the military to eliminate its 20-year pensions in favor of a 401(k)-style retirement system, and replace Tricare health coverage with a wide variety of private insurance plans. Those and a list of 15 changes to military compensation — including a consolidation of commissaries and exchanges — could save almost $5 billion next year and up to $10.4 billion per year by 2020, the panel claims.

Actually, if our stupid "leaders" in DC would stop sending our troops into stupid conflicts around the world, we would not need so many men to sacrifice.

VA hospital chief draws $179G salary despite missing 80 days over 1 year
Washington Examiner

By Luke Rosiak
Published March 30, 2015

DeWayne Hamlin, the top official of the Department of Veterans Affairs' Puerto Rico hospital, was absent from the hospital some 80 days in a one-year period, according to documents obtained by the Washington Examiner.

Hamlin was paid $179,700 despite being absent from the hospital approximately one in three business days last year, according to "delegation of authority" documents by which he temporarily transferred his job responsibilities to deputies.

In April 2014, for example, he was absent from the 10th to the 18th, then from the 24th to the 27th. He also submitted a delegation document saying he would be gone the 28th and 29th. For part of that time, he was traveling to Florida, where he previously lived. He was arrested by Florida police while sitting in his car at 2:00 a.m. on the 26th.

Police said that he smelled of alcohol, twice refused to take a breath test, and that they found oxycodone for which he did not have a prescription. He reportedly refused to say where he got the painkiller.

If he also owes a lot of back income taxes it would make him the perfect candidate for Obama's head of the entire VA.

But only if he has is own email server!

It won't.

Once this little turd leaves office he will be like Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson on steroids several times over. He will command maximum speaking fees ($300,000.00 per) to do so. Mostly at our educational institutions.

The big difference will he that he will include the military, its personnel, and everything it stands for in his repertoire.
Liberty once lost, is lost forever.
