Support Our Troops

Since I'm busy today, I'm happy to find a story that requires no comment at all:

President Bush's budget would more than double the co-payment charged to many veterans for prescription drugs and would require some to pay a new fee of $250 a year for the privilege of using government health care, administration officials said Sunday....The proposals to increase charges to veterans face stiff opposition from veterans organizations, Democratic members of Congress and some Republicans.
Then again, maybe "happy" is the wrong word.

Right. And the very people who will support these new policies are the ones who have "Support our troops" magnets on the backs of their SUVs.
