Jonah Goldberg: VA crisis part of a bigger problem of federal overreach

There is only one guaranteed way to get fired from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Falsifying records won't do it. Prescribing obsolete drugs won't do it. Cutting all manner of corners on health and safety is, at worst, going to get you a reprimand.

It will be an elaborate charade, however, because, having first gone to the U.N., President Barack Obama has largely drained congressional action of relevance.
