Everybody professes to love veterans.

They admire them or pity them, they give them assistance or they ignore them, but publicly most people support veterans.

The VA, the one veterans’ support organization charged with actually doing something to assist veterans, is a bureaucratic quagmire of sloth, fraud and inefficiency.

It operates the largest government-run healthcare organization in the country.

Give it time, though: Obamacare will soon make VA healthcare look like the Mayo Clinic with Jack Welch in charge. Be careful what you wish for, America.
