As vets await checks, VA workers get $24M bonuses?

Is this fiscally responsible use of Governmnet Funds? Especially at a time when we are heatedly debating health care and the potential growing role of the Federal Government???

" Outside the Veterans Affairs Department, severely wounded veterans have faced financial hardship waiting for their first disability payment. Inside, money has been flowing in the form of $24 million in bonuses."

    Wow. I think the ignorance of Anon is following me.... Anon, read the article...  Are you saying those awaiting disability are worth LESS than those who received the bonses??  Why not pay out the benefits FIRST then reward with bonuses?  Please, explain your reasoning (if there is any) ? :oP
