The limits imposed on enrollment in 2003 should be removed permently. Every veteran that was promised health care as part of their service, no matter what their income, should not be denied enrollment in VA healthcare. It should be as simple as that. Maybe more would enroll if they thought their eligibility would not be questioned. After all, they earned it.

Truly unfortunate that costs inhibit some veterans of health care provided by the VA or private insurers.
