VA Hands Out $9 million in Bonuses as Veterans Die in Wait Lines

More than 12,000 Veterans Administration employees in several states have received nearly $9 million in bonuses since 2011, according to a government watchdog group.

To add insult to injury, in fiscal 2009, the year President Obama took office, VA spending was $105,520,280,000 in 2014 dollars. Compared to today’s budgets, that means that during Obama’s presidency annual VA spending has increased 33.5 percent, according to federal reports.

This information comes in the wake of recent reports by WND, the Arizona Republic and other media outlets documenting even though the Obama administration drastically increased VA spending, veterans were unable to receive appointments for months because federal employees compiled “secret waiting lists” leading to the deaths of more than 100 veterans nationwide.
