How Congress quietly killed military health care reform
from The Hill
From Sept. 29:
Service members need portable benefits to take with them throughout their careers, including healthcare. In the end, conversations about cost savings in military compensation are largely treading water unless they propose military health care reform. Other areas of compensation — basic pay, commissary benefits or Basic Allowance for Housing — all enjoy near-unanimous support among military families. Reductions to each benefit were proposed by different stakeholders in this year's National Defense Authorization Act process, and each had met stone walls of resistance from Congress, advocacy groups or the military itself.
