    No if you were not injured in active duty get your own health ins. I am against it. Its for injured vets and should be for acute care. That is the problem with healthcare.

    If a veteran is in anyway in the VA health system they cannot receive a subsidy for health insurance it is considered minimum essential health coverage. They can buy off the marketplace and pay full price which most cannot afford. They also can tell the VA to send them a letter and get out of the VA health system, then they can receive subsidy if they qualify.

    Spoken like a true left-wing asshole. While you mooch off of society, you have absolutely no respect for those that sacrificed for this great nation.

    Doesn't matter if it came out during military service, aggravated or first time condition you will probably receive veteran benefits and that's the way it should be.

    I disagree. I can't understand how some people raised hell about the ACA and expanded Medicaid, but then say vets should all get free healthcare.

    So the induction physicals are sloppy (or they were back in the 60's) and they don't catch a condition or you develop a condition or get hurt on active duty these people receive nothing?

    I think Penelope just called you a dumbass, debbiedowner.
    You shouldn’t take that from her.
