As Promised here is the letter in Full about losing their Veterans Benefits, that were promised by our Congress in the past, again promises broken, kind of like the Natives used to say, “white man speak with forked tongue”

 This is true. It is on pages 77, 172, 218, and
434. You have to dig to see the charges. We (retirees) would lose the
Medicare for life benefit and would have to pay. We would lose TRICARE as a
total care package. We would not be allowed to keep TRICARE so when Obama
stands and says if you like what you have you can keep it, he lies.

             This is a “Heads Up” on a battle we are facing now
and down the road with the new Administration. The Congressional Budget
Office (CBO) has already drafted proposed legislation that would basically
reduce our TRICARE for Life benefits to a system whereby we pay deductibles
and co-pays up to
$6,301 the first year for you and your spouse, with future years being
indexed to increase with inflation. What can we do?  The article below,
obtained from an Air Force Association and written by BG Bob Clements, best
describes what we can do.  Please read it and check the links for CBO
language and do what Bob says-Send this email to every Military Retiree you
know and write and email your Congressman often. For those of you that might
have voted for “Change”, you should do it more than often!

             TRICARE FOR LIFE’S FUTURE . . .

             TRICARE For Life was instituted to correct the
broken promise that military retirees would receive free healthcare coverage
for life and it covers the Medicare co-pay. Now a heavy assault has begun on
Veterans’/Retirees’ benefits to pay for other programs our President
promised during the campaign. And it is a high priority of his
administration. The one item of most interest to Retired Military is in
Article 189. If approved by Congress the first assault wave would hit in 11
and would hit hard. It would initiate cost sharing to require retirees to
pay the first $525 of medical cost and 50% of the next $4,725 for a first
year cost of $2,888 per person.  It would be indexed to increase with
inflation. A reason given for this action (for PR effect) is “overuse” by
         For those of you who are covered by TFL you will
want to pay attention
(Below) to what BG Bob Clements has surfaced about the future of TFL. In any
case, on page 189 of the Congressional Budget Office report, see the note
below on how to get to that spot, there is a strong recommendation to
eventually eliminate the program as it is too expensive. Just another move
to slight those of us who dedicated much of our adult lives to the defense
of our country.

             Strongly recommend that you contact your elected
officials and register your strong opposition to the elimination of the TFL
program. Heads-up from BG Bob Clements, USAF Ret (P38 Bob)

                 The following has been added to the
Congressional Budget Office Web
Site http://www.cbo.gov/ <http://www.cbo.gov/>    a. Budget, Options, Volume 1:
Health Care

             ( http://www.cbo.gov/doc.cfm?index=9925
<http://www.cbo.gov/doc.cfm?index=9925&gt; )
                 For those who have never opened one of these
web sites from OMB :

                 1. double click on the above URL

                 2. click on PDF

                 3. click on the binoculars

                 4. do a search for TFL

                 Now here it is folks and I will guarantee if
you sit around on your behind and do nothing about it as they bring these
options forward this coming year, you will lose one of the best healthcare
benefits that the Medicare eligible retired military have. It
<http://have.it/>  is short of the promises made that we fought so hard for
back in the late 90s and early 00s but it is still the best healthcare
program that anyone in the United States has, bar none.

                People who are professionals always look for the
channel of least resistance when it comes to cutting money out of the
Federal and DOD budget.
I can tell you this straight on, military retirees are one of those channels
of least resistance noted for sitting around, doing nothing, and waiting for
ole Joe to do it for them. You had better wake up. Your medical benefits are
prime target. If you lose them, you have nobody to blame but yourself. Let
me repeat that . . . you have nobody to blame but yourself.

                 The way to secure your benefits is to write to
your members of Congress and to keep writing and writing and writing. ONCE
Keep repeating the above statement until you are blue in the face.

                 Now I’m going to make one more statement to all
of you younger people out there who are not yet eligible for TRICARE for
Remember that . .
. it will impact you big time with the utmost in cruelty unless you are
fortunate enough to die from a heart attack or get run over by a truck.

                 The service organizations will put up a fight,
but, they will need your help and can’t do it by themselves. I hope this
makes it clear as to what you can expect if you do nothing.

                 To show you how stupid these professionals can
be at times just read the data on the noted sites closely. You will see that
in spite of the MTFs (Military Treatment Facility) need to get patients back
to keep their doctors busy and the hospitals from going to clinic status,
these people from OMB would employ a means to keep retirees from using MTF
facilities by charging them a fee for services. How dumb can you get.

                 Even if you are an Obama fan, and believe that
changeth cometh, TFL option from OMB will not go away. They need the money
they spend on you for other programs for people who produce nothing but vote
to keep their boss in office. If you know of anyone who is Retired Military,
please forward this on to them.

             Remember- TFL is an “Earned Benefit” that’s been
granted by a previous Congress.
