I watch the Colbert Report and just saw this guy say that those enjoying the benefit of military health care clearly support UHC even if they don't realize it. Thoughts?Answer Question

I am pretty miffed by this. Firstly, I don't like the idea of anyone laying claim to what the military should feel politically. We are a diverse group of soldiers and spouses who are united in defending the country or supporting those who do so. Secondly, we make HUGE sacrifices to have the health care we do- so what about that makes him think we want to just share the wealth on it after so much sweat and effort? And finally, what would this do to recruiting efforts? That's one of the perks any employer can offer- take that way and there's one less incentive to serve.

NOPE! They agree to the compensation agreement when they enlist, INCLUDING HEALTHCARE. If they do not want those benefits, they they simply need not COMMIT TIME IN SERVICE. It's called a CHOICE. If they want to enjoy a free market choice in healthcare, then they can get out, get a different job, and vwalaa! When the government mandates health decisions that impact the ENTIRE US,(not just those who commit time in service) they are taking the CHOICE away from Americans.

Its kind of like socialism. LOL. Oh gosh, how about that?
Actually it's not like socialism in one way... YOU HAVE A CHOICE, as an American citizen, TO LEAVE it and enter the "free market".... People make the CHOICE to protect and serve. It isn't decided for them. And thanks for the
And um, Vwala, (added an extra 'a' for the effect)
