Should the American Legion reimburse the American citizens for the expense of providing healthcare to veterans who are drinking themselves to death in the American Legion 'posts' (bars)?

No; why do people assume that the federal government (taxpayers or borrow) has an endless supply of money ?? These organizations are formed with charity being one of their goals. The decide how to spend THEIR money and should not expect government money without restrictions.

What happened to the truly altruistic private groups assisting the truly needy who have been wronged and ignored by the powerful greedy powers that be? A genuine altruistic private group would seek no remuneration!!!

"Sounds good but it opens doors for a lot of fraud." so does the IR S/federal government/D.M.V./ post office. any and everything is open to abuse. I see you are not a veteran.

Sounds good but it opens doors for a lot of fraud. VETS join the Legion and other groups for various reasons and expect support if needed.
