The VA Veterans disability system needs to be reviewed. The way the current system is set up a veteran can be rated for service connected condition and receive a monthly check for injuries or health issues that did not occur in combat or that due to genetics and not at all related to their time served in the military. For example, psoriasis, sleep apnea, Schzophrenia etc. The US Federal Government can NOT continue to pay for these types of conditions. A veteran who has sleep apena is rated at 50%
Service connection and receives a monthly check for a minimum of $500 ! Again this system needs to change not with an increase in the spending budget!!
