    that one reason the Rethuglicans in Congress perpetually underfund the VA is that it is very efficient.  Veterans are not getting what they deserve and need, but they're getting a lot more than they would get if they were given vouchers to use private-sector medical care.  The VA, like the Postal Service and the Social Security Administration, is a part of government that actually works to deliver benefits to non-billionaires with astoundingly low overhead.  That's why people like Darrell Issa hate these agencies.  They put the lie to his dogma that government has no role to play apart from killing people in other countries and subsidizing obscenely profitable polluters.
