Yea...there actually is a need for government. That is to defend the country. And part of that entails taking care of the men and women who pay the price for that defense. They get paid a paltry salary and VA benefits are nothing more than an extension of that salary. You know, like a company provided insurance policy is part of an employees pay package.
And my friend that has nothing to do with creating a huge bureaucracy providing for everyone whether they produce anything or not. The constitution allows government to provide for the nations defense..It says nothing about free healthcare. You liberals while thinking you're so smart are actually only displaying your reasoning inadequacies. And that my friend is 'priceless'
