Utilitarian opposition to Obamacare

Many of us are opposed to the prospect of the government taking over the Health Care system on philosophical grounds. But even those philosophically in favor have got to feel some skepticism on simple utilitarian grounds, don't they? It does not take long to accumulate a wealth of stories like this:
The U.S. government failed to send promised college tuition checks to tens of thousands of veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars before they returned to school this fall, even after being warned that it was inadequately staffed for the job.

The Veterans Affairs Department blamed a backlog of claims filed for GI Bill education benefits that has left veterans who counted on the money for tuition and books scrambling to make ends meet.

Seriously - does the government do anything well enough to make you want them running your health care? Or even involved?
