President Obama's Veterans Affairs Secretary, Eric Shinseki, confirmed Tuesday that the Obama administration is considering a plan to make veterans pay for treatment of service-related injuries with private insurance.
Wednesday night, the White House announced the Obama administration is dropping the idea.
Jon Stewart makes this Obamaination sound as half-baked as it was:
"I guess what the government is saying is that if you still need a little bit of rehab from when you got your leg blown off in Iraq, the government will cover you...unless your wife has a little COBRA left over from her previous substitute teaching gig, in that case, you're going to have to go with her and the deductible and the whole thing."
