Obama has been trying for years to lower the health benefits for our military–he wants everyone in the country pushed first into Obamacare and then a nationalized healthcare which has to include British style rationing, hurting our elderly and wounded the most.

I would love to know the seizure meds that John Roberts is taking—his brain is obviously addled.
If I were the Chief Justice’s physician I would order a stat MRI and EEG.
My feeling is Roberts is married to a leftist woman and she had enormous clout with him, causing him to give the finger to Scalia, Kennedy, Alito and Thomas.
Here is updated information outlining Roberts’ infamy:
This summarizes the 10 minutes conversation I had with a Cornyn staffer in DC.
I will not vote for Cornyn again.
86 yr old woman, previously in remarkably good health, physically and mentally active, still very involved in town government, cultural activities, the arts,etc, looks and acts ten to fifteen years younger than her age. Seen as outpt by PA for new SOB and weakness (no appt. available with IM doc). Diagnosed with pneumonia, despite no fever, no antecedent respiratory infection, placed on antibiotic and sent home. Overnight developed increased SOB, ambulance to ED this AM, diagnosed with PE.
This is the wave of the future. We would be better off training PAs and NPs to be technicians – in other words, proceduralists – than handing off to them the responsibility to think and diagnose. The PA never did the five years of clinical training to be able to recognize a pulmonary embolus. He hasn’t got the training to think that weakness, shortness of breath, decreased breath sounds, without fever or any upper respiratory symptoms, might be something other than pneumonia.
Expect a tsunami of similar cases. There’s a reason why we go through all the years of training.

That’s right — they’re not from Texas. Newly licensed doctors enlisting to treat the state’s Medicaid and Medicare patients are more likely to have been trained at international medical schools, according to a review of state medical licensing data.
Of the roughly 1,500 doctors who have received fast-tracked licenses in the last three years in exchange for agreeing to treat the state’s neediest patients, nearly 40 percent were trained at international medical schools — everywhere from India and Mexico to Uzbekistan and Rwanda — while a quarter were trained at Texas medical schools. The Texas Medical Board fast-tracked more licenses for doctors trained in Pakistan than it did for those educated in Louisiana or Oklahoma. (Scroll over our interactive world map to see where these internationally trained doctors got their medical education.)
Recently I overheard several interesting coversations among nurses at work. I work in academic settings as a med school faculty. We also have a NP school in the area that rotate their students near us.
I overheard one of our ICU RN’s on the phone with her doctor’s office. She said, “make sure I am scheduled with the MD, not one of his nurse practitioners or PA’s.” And after she hung up, she turned around and told other nurses that she couldn’t believe the nerve of the doctor’s office, trying to set her up with one of the NP’s instead of the “real doctor,” when they knew that she is a nurse herself.
And I’ve caught very similar discussions among the nursing staff throughout the hospital. I find that nurses by and large do not want to be seen by NP’s or PA’s. They want to be seen by the MD/DO’s.
Everyone in Congress ought to resign because of their ignorance and malpractice!
