Disturbing Sign for Obama Health Care Reform

What position does the U.S. have trouble filling? The fighting soldier. CNN reported:

Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki confirmed Tuesday that the Obama administration is considering a controversial plan to make veterans pay for treatment of service-related injuries with private insurance.

Uncle Sam wants to shed that pesky health care cost as badly as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. I suggest they start with members of Congress. The race to the lowest global common denominator on worker pay/benefits and taxes continues. Is it a move to turn VA health care from a cost center into a profit division? Maybe, it's both.
