Feds should 'claw back' VA bonuses

Two thoughts on the VA.

First, the falsified waiting list motives must have been linked to bonus payments (when did the federal government pay bonuses on top of bloated federal pay?) because it is nearly impossible to fire a federal employee for anything short of treason.

Since the bonus payments were made from our money based upon fraudulent logs, the government should "claw back" any bonuses and criminally prosecute. It borders on embezzlement.

Second, for anyone who thinks we should have a single payer system because it would be cheaper, they have a huge window to the future of health care under such a plan by simply looking at the VA mess. I'm reminded of my response to customers' complaints that our price was too high: Price, quality, service -- pick two!
