I wasn't sure at first so I had to check it out. It turned out that it is true. The health insurance that the government gives to our soldiers and their families is TRICARE. It was already bad enough that it paid less then Medicare and far less than the Blue Cross that other federal employees have, but guess what? By law it is tied to the Medicare rates. So as of monday, our troops and their families will have their TRICARE cut by 21%. If there is anyone who deserves a "Cadillac" Health Insurance policy it is our troops. Instead, we give it to Congressmen and office sitting, every holiday taking governent employee. Does the Federal Government even try to care?
