China has control over CNN

CCP has dug its tentacles deep into the US media.  As new facts become irefutable they use CNN to acknowledge them and re spin. Part of a mitigation strategy for Covid-19 liability.  Today they finally admit they did destroy Covid 19 in the Wuhan Lab. It was for safety they say. All lies and more deception. Over 100 Nations have called for a Independent investigation. It's time for the truth to come to light.

Protect TRICARE Benefits for Retirees


Protect TRICARE Benefits for Retirees

Background: Last year's National Defense Authorization Act increased TRICARE costs for military retirees who enter the military after January 1, 2018, and their families. Current military retirees and their family members are exempt from these cost increases, but a proposal which was recently advanced by the Senate would remove this exemption. This proposal would result in higher TRICARE fees for military retirees, including pharmacy copayments, which are already three times higher than they were in 2011, and enrollment costs for certain plans, such as the new Select plan, would nearly triple. There is an inherent cost to fielding a professional, all-volunteer military, and the promise of a modest stipend immediately upon retirement and inexpensive health care are keys to retaining our best and brightest service members. The VFW needs your help in defeating this harmful proposal which would require military retirees to pay more for their earned health care.

Take Action: Contact your Senators and Representative to demand that they reject any proposal that would result in TRICARE fee increases for current beneficiaries, and let them know that veterans have paid for their benefits through blood, sweat and tears many times over.

After taking action, please consider posting about this Alert on social media:

On Twitter, please paste: I stand with @VFWHQ in opposing any #FY18NDAA proposal that would require military retirees to pay more for their earned health care!
