Senate Rejects Boosting Health Insurance Premiums

The Senate Armed Services Committee is working hard to keep the promise that was made to me and millions of other military retirees regarding free health care for life. In The Virginian-Pilot today, here is the lead paragraph
A Senate committee has rejected Pentagon proposals to boost the health insurance premiums paid by more than 3 million military retirees, stripping the plan out of legislation setting a wide range of Defense Department policies.

If you read to the bottom, you'll see that the committee is not pleased with the condition of the Navy's ships.

This is an absolute disgrace! Free health care was the promise we made to those who dedicated their entire working lives to the defense of our nation. Why is it that politicians get free health care and veterans don't?
