I have read the blog and have gathered this much.
Given the mandate for businesses to cover their employes under Obama care the proposal for having health care for veterans to be placed under businesses is cost shifting esp. since a lot of that care will be related to injuries due to military duty. The families of the veterans should be covered under the health care provided by their employers.
The proposal to delay retirement benefits for military should be a nonstarter as long as there is substantial opposition to delay retirement benefits in Social Security from 65 to 67. Any reductions of payments to military should not be done unless we are willing to do something similar to Social Security beneficiaries like those who have other income will take a reduction in benefits. I like the idea that future military enrollees will provide their own retirement benefits by enrolling in a investment like IRA.
The placement of troops is more in line with Geo-stratrigic policies and must be address under those.
Since the blog did not link the report I cannot comment further.
