Congressman Protects Taxpayers from Military Costs

Yes, our Guardsmen and Reservists protect us from terrorists, but who protects us from paying health insurance for our Guardsmen and Reservists? That would be congressman Duncan Hunter (R - CA). To keep weekend warriors from "gaming" the system, Hunter used a "rarely used authority" to amputate a provision from a $441.5 billion defense bill that would have allowed Guardsmen and Reservists to buy health coverage for $75 a month (or $233 a month for their family). Good thing Hunter acted, because given the skyrocketing costs of health coverage, we're betting tons of people would be willing to risk potential death in Iraq for a cheap monthly premium. And with so many people signing up for the military these days anyway, why tempt them with extra perks like $75-a-month medical coverage?
