Now on to this: "but I have to assume the $80K to $100K I pay in taxes every year somehow entitles me to get something back." (a) you don't pay your bills so it's very questionable if you make what you claim (b) point out which part of the tax code "entitles" you to get something back if you haven't overpaid (c) some people pay way more than what you claim you pay others pay way less than what you claim you pay. If everybody gets "something back" it does little good to pay taxes to begin with.
Now this: "It has to be cheaper". Your screw up caused you to look elsewhere for insurance. It's not BCBS fault you screwed up and they are not in business to go broke. In the future, don't be a screw up.
Now this: "I need to contact the VA and see if I am eligible for Tricare since USAF got 20 years of reserve duty from me." The VA and Tricare are two completely different organizations. 20 years of service and you don't know that? 20 years of service and you don't know if you are eligible for Tricare? Those make it questionable if you even did 20 years of service. But if you did, why are you so screwed up you don't know what you are eligible for? Everybody else gets briefed repeatedly on what they are eligible for. Sounds like it goes back to item (b) on why people don't pay their bills.
Now this: " trying to say my wife's diabetes won't be covered." It will be covered just as soon as she meets the wait requirement required by the state of New York. You should already know this if she really has diabetes.
Now this: " I would assume the nearest VA hospital". You have access to a computer and most likely a phone. Item (b) again on why people don't pay their bills.
Now this: "Actually, you are one of the bottom feeders that are carried by me." No I'm not and no you don't.
Now this: " I spent 20 years protecting your freedom of speech". Why thank you (if you did serve). But does my military time count toward me protecting my own freedom of speech or is it just yours?
Now this: "I guarantee I pay 5x to 10x what you do in taxes every year". If based on what you claim to make, you don't. Item (b) again on your part.
Now this: " Hell, I bet my taxes are more than your salary by a long shot." No need in you playing the lottery or betting on the Kentucky Derby. You make horrible bets.
Now this: "People like you should kiss the a$$es of people like me that pay 90% of the taxes". By your standard you'd be kissing mine.
Now this: "Your kind hasn't paid a dime for my decisions. Other way around. I pay for your kind to even exist." You have no clue as to what my "kind" is. Lots of item (b) there.

Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
