Health Care Bill

Well, I see that the people in DC are finally getting near the end of their haggling about the health care bill. Since nothing has ever been mentioned about "if your employer doesn't provide health care benefits and you rely solely on the VA for your health care," I called my rep in DC.

As the VA is always asking me if I have private insurance, I asked if vets who receive health care solely from the VA would still have to purchase "mandatory" private insurance or be penalized. The answer I received was.... "if the VA health care system meets the required provisions of the health care bill, you will not have to buy the 'mandatory' insurance."

You'd think the people in DC would know if the VA meets the "required provisions of any health bill" that they are reading.... or have supposedly read....

Anywho, after receiving that response, I told the dude that I sure hoped that any health care bill that is passed doesn't "mess over" any veterans... (hint,hint) because there's a lot of us out here.....
