    I thought you might be interested, Bwaha, to learn that Obama's new budget plan includes a proposal to strip your choices from you.

    President Obama’s 2016 budget blueprint proposes rolling back a program that gives veterans the right to receive faster care outside of the long waitlists at the troubled Veterans Affairs medical system.
    Obama signed the Veterans Choice Program into law in August following months of partisan wrangling on Capitol Hill that finally led to a compromise measure to overhaul the agency.
    The Veterans Choice Program was a key GOP provision in the deal.

        It appears a lot of other vets are also eligible.

          In case anyone is interested, this is a PDF report compiled by the Veterans of Foreign Wars on the changes since Congress implemented them last year.

            Can't have veterans going outside the government for medical care when it is Obama's desire we all get stuck with crappy, second rate, government medical care.
