    I don't wear a pussy hat. You love the ACA you just don't know it. You probably love the pre existing clause part, which I read Trump and the GOP want to find it unconstitutional. Back to the questionnaires.

    Just wait til they try to claim, they will get labeled as pre-existing condition & get shafted.

    There is no reason why financially well off veterans whose condition is unrelated to their service should get free care. The majority if not all wealthy ex military would prefer private doctors.

    Even not financially well off, disabled is a different story, they can get on Medicare. Otherwise if they are homeless or the working poor they can qualify for expanded Medicaid or the ACA. There is no draft.

    You didn’t wear the proper attire while attending a leftist march against professional women who voted for Trump?

    Not so. My hombre had a real nasty fall off scaffold over in 29 palms. Caved the back of his head in, coma all that and the navy had him 100%. Being in the militarey is a job. If you are injured on the job, any job in this country the employer is on the hook for it unless you fail a drug test. So those vets may not be able to go to the a VA, which is a good thing, but they will be and are taken care of.

    if it weren't for me qualifying for lvl 7 care I would not get my Bi-polar medication. I was going berserk 20+ years ago. I was saved because I qualified for VA.
    You are saying those who can't afford medical shouldn't get it. I have a nephew who doesn't have VA, he never served. He can't hold down a job because of his emotional disorder. Does he deserve to live in the street without medical care?

    Put it this way, he does not deserve free medical care from the military.

    That is where expanded Medicaid come in to play. So you live in a state without expanded Medicaid, do you think you got bipolar from the military? I am pro the ACA and expanded Medicaid.

    no. I recognize things I done as a child that were symptoms of my disease.
