We just learned about the new recreation center at Gitmo. America was introduced to Camp 6′s $750,000 soccer field due to open in April. The project compliments existing indoor and outdoor recreation fields, also taxpayer funded. The project started almost a year ago. A month after it began Holder spoke in Paris: “Although we have not closed Guantanamo within the time period that we initially indicated … it is still the intention of the president, and it is still my intention, to close the facility that exists in Guantanamo.”
Bill Gertz just wrote about Obama’s new budget cuts: “The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.
The proposed increases in health care payments by service members, which must be approved by Congress, are part of the Pentagon’s $487 billion cut in spending. It seeks to save $1.8 billion from the Tricare medical system in the fiscal 2013 budget, and $12.9 billion by 2017.”
There are many obvious problems here but the soccer field, knowing he was going to move forward with the closing, why build the soccer field?
What does ObamaCare improve in America? How does it build strength and leadership in our military? When and where was it designed to do so? How powerful are the economies of countries today which are devoid of military strength?
