This is a bit of what happened today. The Sand Crawler in the White House and his minions, trolls and slugs are hosing over the Armed Forces Retirees. Sorry if the amounts are not what some would consider excessive but it is the severe increases from what it was. Percentages. And straight up, folks, we who served for long periods do not owe anyone else a damn thing anymore. Even the Sand Crawler in Chief is not good enough to kiss our asses.
I discovered my TriCare co pay for prescriptions took a near vertical rise in cost. I picked up my prescriptions today. What was a three dollar co pay for ninety days is now fifteen dollars times three medications. The other one is at twelve dollars. That was fifteen dollars for what was eighteen dollars before. Seems that someone inside the Beltway is out to hose over all Armed Forces Retirees. That is the only thing I can surmise. Why do all of you who support the CinC, blindly, hate us so? It is the only thing I can gather from this. WE ARE OWED! Regardless of what we do for a living. I do make a good living. But this boils down to right versus wrong. These benefits were EARNED doing what the ordinary American would not or in case of my generation refused to do. I include most of the Congress in that as well.
Polite but blunt. I called Congressman McCarthy's office in Bakersfield and got a staffer. The paperwork is enroute to the house. I also left voicemails with my senators. Those stirling witches we are saddled with, Babs and Dumb Diane. I was polite but let my irritation and anger show.
The promise..........broken. I will never pop tall at attention for any office holder ever again. Never. I will insult their ancestory, call them vile names but never, ever show anything resembling respect, again.
