Obama drops disputed vet medical planWhat next? Charging America's soldiers for the bullets they expend? Taxing them for each pint of blood they require in battlefield triage? Military funerals?

The Obama administration dropped a proposal to require some disabled veterans to pay for medical treatments through their private insurance companies, heeding a chorus of outrage from veterans groups and Capitol Hill lawmakers who said the idea was immoral, unconscionable and un-American.
The White House decided to scrap the plan after meeting with a contingent of veterans and military advocacy groups on Wednesday for the second time this week. [link]
