Clearly you don't. A huge part of the issue is resources. It takes massive amounts of resources to addresses massive issues.

The average spending per person on health care in the U.S. is $8,000/year. That's an average that includes everyone from the healthiest to the sickest folks.

Guess which end of the healthy-sick spectrum vets lean toward?

It's actually Vietnam era vets that are really getting expensive. It's not because of money the VA hospitals were poorly run, lied about waiting lists, and even let patients die.

That is exactly the sort of stuff big govt is known for.
Actually, it's the type of thing any large organization is known for.

Dig in and educate yourself.
That's rich from you, moron.
