The Department of Veterans Affairs has cited examples as it sought approval from Congress last year for a dozen new or expanded health clinics around the country. In Lake Charles, La., in Boustany's district, it's not the condition of a clinic but the lack of one. It's estimated that 6,000 veterans would enroll in VA health care if the community were to get a new clinic. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
