The VA is cutting health care. “More than a quarter-million veterans considered to have higher incomes could not sign up for health care with the Veterans Affairs Department during the last fiscal year because of a cost-cutting move.

Those locked out – totaling 263,257 in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30 – have no illnesses or injuries attributable to their service in the military and earn more than the average wage in their community.”

Not even fighting for your country can guarantee medical coverage. The health-care squeeze affects everybody.
