The men and women in uniform have been denied insurance; this means that the people who are protecting our country are not getting the respect they deserve. The problem is that some Veterans are making enough money to not qualify for VHA (Veterans Health Administration) but are also not making quite enough for insurance. The men and women who protect our country have no insurance which they deserve to have for free some say. If they put their life in danger just to protect our country they deserve free health care many say. However, there are those that do have free VHA but there is still a major problem. This problem is that the VHA has a lot of members, (almost all of the military) and no matter the condition; one will probably be put on a waiting list to get treatment for the issue. Someone could have a chronic condition but they may have to wait for a very long time. But, it gets worse. Upon disease, or acceptance, this person will receive inadequate care from an understaffed facility.
