By Staff Brunswick Beacon

To the editor: President Obama has declared a healthcare crisis and demanded action right away. He has said all options are on the table.

The Congressional Budget Office has prepared Budget Options Vol. 1: Health Care. Three of these options would hit military families and retirees quite hard.

Option 96 would increase the costs for military retirees older than 65 by up to $2,888 per enrollee ($5,776 per couple), and would start co-pays for services and pharmaceuticals at military treatment facilities. For some, this is three to six months of retirement pay.
