I wasn't already eligible for Medicare before Obama care. They expanded Medicare... ( at least the states that allowed them too...)so there are prob a million people who are now eligible for Medicare that weren't before.
You didn't read his post properly if you think F4 doesn't count. The VA only covers service related injuries--unless you are in active service, you don't get full medical benefits.
If you served in the active military service and were separated under any condition other than dishonorable, you may qualify for VA health care benefits. Current and former members of the Reserves or National Guard who were called to active duty by a federal order and completed the full period for which they were called or ordered to active duty may be eligible for VA health benefits as well.

This bill only benefits two groups of people. People with pre-existing conditions and people with low incomes. Everyone else gets screwed. Oh yeah and the insurance companies. They benefit (corporations are people remember )
I have benefitted greatly. As a partially disabled veteran, I get free VA care for the service connected injuries I suffered. But that same injury that qualifies me for free VA care for those injuries disqualified me from other insurance as a "pre-existing condition." So if I have a leg or arm orthopedic problem, I was in good shape. But until the ACA, I couldn't get coverage for cancer or heart problems. Now I have full coverage at a reasonable cost It was a common situation for vets.
